YouTube record from webcam no longer available - try ClipChamp instead
YouTube used to have a feature that allowed you to record directly from your webcam. As of January 16th, this feature is no longer available. According to Google, "it was rarely used and based on old technology".
Here is a nice option, especially for Chromebook users.
Clipchamp is a nice site that allwos you to record a video file and then upload it to YouTube or Google Drive. It's very easy to use - go to the site and click "record video". You can share directly to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, or Google Drive or save it to your computer.
There is also a Chrome extension for it.
It looks like there is a 5 min limit, but it should be good for most needs.
And of, course WeVideo is always an option.
