How to Upload to TheWeedTube

Uploading to TheWeedTube is as simple as a few clicks! To upload to TheWeedTube, ensure you complete the following steps. Failure to follow all the steps will result in your upload failing, and a lot of time being lost! So follow carefully! Its recommended that you use Google Chrome browser when trying to upload.

Step 1:

Click the green “Upload Video” button at the top right of the webpage. Once the page loads you can choose whether you’d like to upload directly to TheWeedTube.

Step 2:

The uploader will load and allow you to choose your video file. If you receive an error on this page please try disabling any type of ad blocking software as this may conflict with the upload page itself.

Step 3:

Once you choose a video it will begin to upload and you can now fill out the video information. Including the title, description, thumbnail, tags and category. We recommend a minimum of 2-3 sentences in your video description to optimize your content. The description is a great place to add a little extra fun to your content! Within the description, you can link your social profiles, the glass used in the video (even affiliate links) or even write a few sentences to make your content stand out from the crowd. If you create a detailed video on how to make cannabutter, it may be valuable to write down a few steps or even link out to where users can buy the items you feature in the video. Do not spam links or affiliate links or your content will be removed.

Step 4:

The video upload works in two processes. It first has to complete uploading, then fully complete processing. The processing may take some time but ensures that your videos work on every device. Once you complete all the steps on the form a green “Submit” button will appear. When you click Submit, it will say "We will notify you when your video will go live." Once you click submit, the video will do some additianal processing and send you both an email and post notification, if you have the app installed, when your video is published.

Step 5:

Add tags. If you are familiar with YouTube tags, treat these tags the exact same way. Tags are what are people use to better discover your content. Let’s say you do a giant dab from your favorite bong. Now you can upload it right to the bong & concentrate category, but what if you want people who are specifically looking for a giant slab dab? This is where tags can help. Use tags to help people better discover your videos. Here are some example tags: Bong, Streamroller, Dab Rig, Big Dab, Slab Dab, Weed Comedy, Giant Bong, Weed Games, Joints, Blunts, Hotbox. Things that signify what is going on within the content should be added to the tags. Please keep tags down to a minimum of 15 or less per video. Less is more on TheWeedTube.

Additional Information

Please be sure to leave your browser open when uploading!! TheWeedTube is not like YouTube in the sense that it can resume uploads. If you close your browser mid-upload, you must start from the beginning.

If you spam excessive links, tags or other things in the description of your video, your content will be flagged by our spam queue. We will not remove or release any content from the spam queue, so please upload appropriately.

If you encounter any issues while using the website, please contact us at service[@]theweedtube.com.

Happy Uploading!
