How Can I Upload An MP3 to YouTube

by Christine Smith • Jul 26,2019 • Proven solutions

I just tried to upload a funny MP3 audio to YouTube, but only to receive an error message saying that the file is not supported. How come there are plenty of audio files found on YouTube? Can anyone tell me why and how can I upload MP3 to YouTube, please!

That's a good question! First of all, you should know that YouTube is a platform solely for video broadcasting, while MP3 is a common container type to store audio fiiles only. As for the exsistence of audio files on YouTube, it's either through adding an image or photo to the audio files (then save it as a video file) or by converting MP3 to YouTube supported file format. Comparatively, the latter solution is much easier if you have Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) at hand. It's an all-in-one video converter that not only converts video/audio files between 1000+ formats, but customizes video conversion to popular social networks as well. See more details below.

If your computer is running on Windows XP or Vista, then you'd have Windows Movie Maker pre-installed. In other words, you can use it to create a video file out of MP3 audio totally for free. All you need is to add an image to your MP3 file. Make sure that you match the photo or image with the audio’s time length, or else you’ll most likely find the successfully uploaded file won’t be able to play the whole song.
