How to Publish YouTube Shorts on Vista Social

YouTube Shorts is a way for anyone to connect with a new audience using just a smartphone and the Shorts camera in the YouTube app. YouTube’s Shorts creation tools makes it easy to create short-form videos that are up to 60 seconds long with our multi-segment camera

As of today, "Shorts" are just plain Youtube videos, because really any Youtube video can be regarded as a "Shorts" video by appending its id to the shorts route, even if it's a 24 hour long video, for example this one:


However, it seems that the question should better be: What could raise the chances that a Youtube video be "promoted" by Youtube as a "Shorts" video?

To which the answer is: Follow Youtube's guidelines, provided here

  1. Entitle your video with the #shorts hashtag.
  2. Add the #shorts hashtag to your description.
  3. Make it longer than 15 seconds and less than 60 seconds.
  4. Make sure the ratio of the video is vertical (iphone, Android phone sized video - Width: 1080 x Height 1920 px)
