Welcome to the support site

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      know that this is an issue with the Windows Store at the moment, and nothing in the app’s control. You can search up and down Microsoft Answers and find hundreds of posts to this exact effect.

      I apologize for any inconvenience and would gladly do something if there were something I could do.

        I’ve recently found out this is a known issue with the OS and the File Picker on low-memory devices. It should be resolved in Windows 10 Mobile and the upcoming release of UtY for that OS.

        Thanks.

          Jessica,
          The categories shown are controlled by YouTube. One can only submit videos under their categories, so I can’t add arbitrary categories to the list and submit them.

          Great suggestion, though – might be one to submit to the YouTube team? In the meantime, might I suggest the “People & Blogs” category as one that would likely house “family”-type videos.

          Thanks again

        • Video category

          Keep the default video category as blank and make it optional for uploading. Auto&vehicles category is not the good choice as a default option and every time I have to change it even I don't want to set it for private videos.

            Unfortunately YouTube doesn’t support uploading a video with no category specified.

            However, one of the more recent updates to Upload to YouTube has changed the default category to People & Blogs. Hopefully this is more accurate for the larger percentage of use cases.

            Thanks for your suggestion, keep them coming!

          • add video statistic analysis tool

            Some of windows phone user would like to take a look at how many people have watched their videos, how many likes they have received. This tool could help them to make their video better

              Have you checked out MetroTube to see if it has the features that fit your needs? It’s a much more robust YouTube player

              I want to try and keep Upload to YouTube as focused on its job as possible. Not only to ease the complexity of the app, but also to ensure I can provide the best experience for this task as possible!
