Today, after a conference call I was left scratching my head wondering how could someone else’s video (not one of your own uploaded videos) be featured on your YouTube channel. What to do? I turned to Twitter’s collective knowledge and within a couple of hours someone sent me a screenshot with the explanation.
Here is the list of steps, indicated on the following screenshot (click on it for a large version):
(1) Click on the edit link at the top of your YouTube channel.
(2) Select “Other” in the Featured Video dropdown menu.
(3) Paste the URL of the video you want to feature.
(4) Click the Save Changes button and voila!
