How Can I Upload MP3 to YouTube

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 files only. As for the existence 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 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. It can also upload AVI files to YouTube easily.If you need to know How to Upload AVI to YouTube Effortlessly, you also can use UniConverter to make it.
