Video Intro's - You Can Create Them Yourself

Last Update: June 09, 2015

I was looking at having a video intro at the beginning of all my videos. I've had one created on Fiverr which I'm really happy with.

I just wanted to mention a couple of things that I found whilst YouTubing.

Firstly, you can make your own video intro's quite easily. There's a link below to an instructional YouTube video I found showing how it's done via Windows Movie Maker. Note: This is not my video.

The other thing I wanted to mention, is that there was an option to upload your intro's to YouTube and have it added to all your YouTube videos.

As of March 31 this year (2015), Google has removed this feature, so be aware that any new video's will not have your intro if you've had it set up this way. There's a number of articles on this, here's a couple of them.

I did an intro for my videos and then decided (too late) that I didn't like it anymore. I was happy when Google removed them. The only problem is that you can't edit or add to a video once it's up on YouTube - you can only delete and replace and lose all the views and comments you've received. ~Marion

Yeah, this went through my mind also Marion. I like the idea of an intro but if it's part of the actual video you are stuck with it, no going back if you decide to change your mind.
