    2. Description: Help viewers understand more about the video by adding a description. This description displays at the bottom of the video after it is published live on YouTube.
    3. Tags: Add tags to your video. Tags allow other YouTube users to see your video by linking common words associated with your video. Other videos with similar tags are often grouped in the sidebar on YouTube.
    4. Privacy when shared: Select one of the options available: PublicUnlisted, or Private. Public videos can be searched for and viewed by anyone. Unlisted videos are only accessible to people who know the video link. Private videos are unlisted and only viewers whom you designate can view them. These users must have a Google account to access the video.

    6. Playlist: Choose a playlist from the drop-down list.

    8. Keep a copy of this file: Select this option if you want to keep a copy of the video saved on your computer. After selecting this option, navigate to the folder where you want to save the file. You can then choose to set the following advanced settings or retain the default settings, which are generally the best settings.
