Creating a YouTube Short (II)
Did you know? Sometimes, YouTube adds a sec or two to the videos you upload. It might not seem like a big deal to you, but 2 seconds can either classify your entire video as a regular or as a Short.
To be on the safe side, make sure your video is 58 sec long or less. This will help ensure that you don’t go beyond the 60-sec limit. Though YouTube did not say the minimum video length for a Short, I’ll advise you to keep it at a minimum of 5-sec length.
Another vital thing is the dimension of your Shorts. From personal experiments, I’ve noticed that it is either your Shorts is vertical or a complete square (1080×1080 pixels).
How to Determine Video that Fits in to Qualify for Shorts
After uploading your video, how’ll you know if your video qualifies as a short?
Simply add a Shots Featured section to the webpage of your channel. This section, which is only for the app, brings you the content, YouTube views, etc.
So for any video, you’ll know the grouping. If a video is found in the Shorts featured section, then it is Short. If it doesn’t, then it is a regular video. Add this to your homepage, and you’ll be fine.
