Basic process to upload a video to https://dtube.video.
- Register an account on Steemit like https://steemit.com/@jerrybanfield.
- Use the private posting key from the wallet permissions tab to sign into DTube with the Steemit account.
- Upload videos to DTube along with a snap file or thumbnail image.
- Write a description, choose up to 4 tags, and submit to the blockchain.
- Edit the post on Steemit for maximum readability. Note that DTube takes 25% of the author rewards received from the Steem Power.
Common DTube troubleshooting errors and solutions.
- The upload fails or the uploading button spins forever or the browser forces a reloading of the page. Solve this problem by using handbrake to make a smaller video size or testing a different browser or trying a different computer or clearing the cookies or using DTube the next day. Under 1 GB video file is best.
- Invalid snap file either with failing to upload or the size is too big. The snap file size maximum is 500 KB currently. Overcome this error by using a smaller snap file image, reducing the video size, trying a different browser, or changing computers. Safari gives me this error frequently on my iMac.
- Unable to submit to blockchain with any kind of error with the submit button not resulting in a post on Steem. Test on a different computer, browser, video file, or wait one day and try again. Make the description shorter or reduce the tags or title if errors come from having these too long.
