UPDATE: SOME OF YOU HAVE WONDERED ABOUT COPYRIGHT LAWS. AT THIS STAGE, BE SURE TO MARK YOUR VIDEOS AS PRIVATE BY CLICKING ON THE “VIDEO MANAGER” BUTTON IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER.
YOU’LL THEN SEE A SCREEN LIKE THE ONE ABOVE, CLICK ON THE BLUE BOX TO THE RIGHT IN ORDER TO CHANGE THE SETTINGS FROM PUBLIC TO PRIVATE. YOU CAN SEE ABOVE THAT THE FIRST VIDEO NOW DISPLAYS A LOCK, THAT MEANS IT IS PRIVATE. THE ONE BELOW HAS NOT BEEN CHANGED YET AND SHOWS A GROUP OF HEADS, INDICATING IT IS STILL PUBLIC.
I AM NOT A LAWYER OR AN EXPERT IN COPYRIGHT BUT KEEPING BOTH YOUR VIDEOS AND BLOG PRIVATE IS AN ESSENTIAL FIRST STEP IN ENSURING THAT YOUR RECORDINGS ARE NOT DISTRIBUTED FOR USE BY OTHERS.
Keep uploading and eventually you’ll end up with an entire channel of audio books.
Click on the “New Blog” button in the upper left corner of the screen.
Choose a name and address for your new site and click on “Create Blog”.
Next, click on the drop down menu next to your newly setup blog and go to “Template”.
UPDATE: THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN ALSO MAKE YOUR NEW BLOG PRIVATE. IN THIS SAME DROP DOWN MENU, SELECT “SETTINGS”.
IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER OF THE NEXT SCREEN YOU CAN CHANGE “BLOG READERS” FROM “ANYBODY” TO “ONLY BLOG AUTHORS”.
Once your template set, click on “New post”.
Return to your YouTube station, click on one of your recordings, and hit the “Share” button.
Once you see this screen, click on “Embed”. Next copy all of the code in blue.
Return to your new blog post and click on “HTML”. Paste the code here.
Enter a post title (I use the book title), then click on the orange “Publish” button.
Click on the “View Blog” button and you’ve got your first audio book in your collection all ready to go.
For the iPad, simply got to the address of your new site, click on the last icon in the upper left corner and select “Add to Home Screen”.
An icon similar to the one above will then appear on your desktop.
