How to upload a song to YouTube with picture

It's not hard to make such videos with special programs but it can be quite time-consuming to install and figure out how they work. So we have a simple online solution that allows uploading a song to YouTube from your phone or computer — you just need a picture and an audio file.

The tool is free as long as your file size does not exceed 500 MB. If you want to edit a bigger file or get rid of our tiny watermark, you can subscribe to the pro version.
