Step 2: Click on “Save Recent Gameplay” and then you need to select “Save Short Clip.” You can also select “Save full video” in case you want a much longer gameplay video.

Step 3: Select the duration of the clip (ex., 10 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, or even 30 minutes) and click on it.

Step 4: After that, just click on “Start recording” and then you can start playing the game, which PS5 will keep on recording for the selected duration. You can press the “share” button twice to start/pause the video.

Step 5: Now to upload the clip, first click on the “video preview” screen that you’ll see after finishing the gameplay recording and bringing up the dialogue again.

Step 6: Click on “Go to Media Library” and select the gameplay video that you want to upload to YouTube.

Step 7: Press the “Options” button on the selected video and then click on “Share.” Choose “YouTube,” enter the title, enter a description, and choose whether to make the video public or let it remain private.
Step 8: Click on “Upload” and you’re done! Your video will now be uploaded to YouTube from the PS5 console itself after recording the gameplay.

That’s it, folks! Thanks for reading. Stay tuned.
