How to Post a VocabSlam Video Reply

In addition to written sentence examples, VocabSlam welcomes video submissions!  Here's how to do it.

For ANY video on, click the YouTube button, which brings you to the video on YouTube. Once you are there, click "Sign In" below the video (if you are already not signed in). When you are signed in, click the comment box below the video that says "Respond to this video..." Next, click "Create a video response". Then,
  • Choose a video you may already have in the video list box, or to create a new video, click Upload a Video, then Start, then Record from webcam.
  • You may see a box that says "Adobe Flash Player Settings" If so, click the "Allow" button.
  • Start recording, click "Upload" when finished.
  • Fill out label information:
          Title:            VocabSlam (insert the word)
          Description:  Vocabslam (insert the word)
          Tags:            Vocabslam, (insert the word), SAT, GRE
          Category:      Education
  • Click "View on Video Page" to preview. If you're satisfied, return to VocabSlam and click "Upload Video Reply!" for that same word.
  • You will see the title of your video in the video list box. Click the title and then "Use the selected video" button.
Remember to use the word correctly and to only use one vocabulary word per video. Your video will be reviewed by VocabSlam moderators, who will contact you via email within 24 hours. Good luck VocabSlammers!
