So I am a sub account and I don't have a facebook to download it to youtube with. I don't have a capture card to use with my PS4 so I can't upload. I've checked the share stuff but couldn't find an upload to youtube. Is there a thing i'm missing that you can upload to youtube or do you need a capture card or facebook?

  • This should be an option straight off the Share screen. I thought they recently added YouTube support. I just watched a how-to video here that shows the process: youtube.com/watch?v=7lTki2qGbeM ...I suppose it's possible it doesn't work from a sub account though. – Bryan C. Feb 19 '15 at 19:35

At the moment, no, there is no direct link to YouTube. However if you wish to upload a video in minutes to YouTube the process would be:

  1. Ensure you have the video clip you wish to use displayed on the screen (this can be achieved by Settings-System Storage-Videos etc.) and also a flash drive inserted into the USB port.

  2. Hit Options in your controller and a menu will slide in from the right-hand side.

  3. Select Copy to USB. Once the file is copied over, go to your PC or laptop and insert the flash drive.

  4. Go to YouTube, log in, select Upload a video, select the video clip and upload it.

Warning: If the Share button is pressed it only stores the last half hour of gameplay, this is why I would recommend hitting the share button instantly after you decide to save it.

P.S. If you wish to edit the video before hand I would recommend using the PS4's ShareFactory to edit the video, this can be downloaded for free from the Playstore.
