Hi @Helen Earey  

As people have said you cannot go direct from Dropbox to YouTube it has to go via a local device (such as your camera roll) first.

Thanks for letting me know. I can only seem to put photos and video on my camera roll. I have audio mp3 recordings that I want to upload.

Your best bet is to speak to YouTube support channels/forums about how to do it I'm afraid

You can, in fact, upload a video from your Dropbox straight to YouTube without first downloading it to your local computer/smartphone. It's done using a service called YouTuBox. You can log in with your YouTube account and then just connect your Dropbox account and choose a YouTube channel.

You can directly upload a video file from Dropbox to your YouTube channel using zzBots.

 

You can set up a bot in zzBots that will monitor the specified Dropbox folder for newly added files, and then automatically upload them to YouTube.

 

You can install this bot here: https://www.zzbots.com/store/xjmugjzc3MNyPQGTa

 

Here is a video that explains how it works, and how to install it.
