I have an iPhone 3GS and am trying to upload a video I shot in the Apple Camera app. Here's what I do:

  • Go to the video I want to upload
  • Tap "Send to YouTube"
  • Enter my Gmail username and password for "YouTube password"
  • I also try my old YouTube username and password

This fails and re-prompts me to enter my username and password. I don't have a YouTube password because Google merged YouTube accounts in your Google (Gmail) account.

How can I upload videos to YouTube?

Have you tried your old YouTube username and password? I don't have Gmail and I log in with my Hotmail account. –  Hand-E-Food Sep 21 '11 at 23:49
Yes, I tried my YouTube login and that doesn't work either. Edited my post to include that info. –  Ryan Sep 21 '11 at 23:51
If your Google account was merged with your YouTube account wouldn't the password be that of your Google Account? I noticed you said you tried your YouTube password. Also you could try "forgot password" to possibly reset it. –  l'L'l Sep 22 '11 at 0:08
