Frequently Asked Questions

What's an 'upload default'? And why do I need one?

Upload defaults are settings that are applied to your video uploads according to your choices. You can choose defaults for your videos' privacy setting, category, title, tags, comments, language, and more.

Instead of having to manually write or copy-paste unique descriptions for your videos, upload defaults help you pre-write and add your metadata and configurations in a few clicks.

How many upload defaults can I create with TubeBuddy?

You can create as many upload default profiles as you want with a Pro, Legend, or Enterprise account. If you have a Free account, you can only create one additional upload default.

How easy is it to switch between different upload profiles?

It's really easy. All you need to do is select the profile you want to use right after you upload a video to YouTube. If you chose one by mistake or changed your mind, you can select another one, which will override the existing metadata and configurations.

What can I add to my upload defaults?

With an upload default, you can set up the title, description, and tags as well as your video configurations. The most important element you may want to repeat in all your videos is the description.
