    So I have created videos on my computer and I want to upload it to YT using VPS since my internet connection is slow.

    I thought I can just upload it with VPS directly from my computer folder but it slow as well.

    How can I upload my edited videos in my computer using VPS?

    Thanks

    Not how it works. You would have to create the videos on the VPS itself, or upload from your computer (using your slow connection) to the VPS but then the VPS could upload using its fast speed.

    Use Dropbox. Upload to Dropbox and download video on your VPS.

    A better option would be to edit your clips directly on your VPS in the future, so you don't have to upload huge files from your PC to your VPS. There are open source video editors for Linux, if that is a concern for you, Openshot is one of them.

    i dont know you specs of you VPS but editing videos on a vps could be hell of a pain , i know because i tried it myself , and im talking about a dedicated server :S
    my suggestion is editing them on your own pc than uploading them to hosts like box, sendspace, 4shared etc etc.

    but in the other side whiel uploading to those hosts or transfering to vps you could use the time to upload the videos directly to youtube or whereever you want them to be uploaded , would cost you the same time, just a though

    ^ This for sure. If your own connection sucks there's no way that you'll be able to solve the issue by using a VPS while keep editing on your own machine. At some point you'll have to transfer the videos to your VPS for uploading and that's the bottleneck. Since you seem to be a novice I'd suggest to buy a cheap windows VPS and do all the editing on it via remote desktop, teamviewer or similar DIRECTLY on the VPS.

    That's so true! lol
    My best option now is just create a small simple video for ease upload to YT.

    Thanks for the response everyone!

    You have to do it on VPS directly unfortunately (found it on hard way, lol) but be ready for experience that is nowhere near the one like when you doing it on your own PC.

    I would not recommend RDP, use TeamViewer or Radmin, they're more responsive.
