How to Upload One Video to Multiple Social Media Sites

Ron asks: How can you upload one video to multiple social media sites at once? I have a video I would like to distribute to sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, TikTok? but don’t want to upload all separately. Thanks!

Uploading one video to multiple social media sites one at a time can quickly turn into a time-consuming and tedious process as you have to go to each video sharing platform individually and upload your video to one after the other.

And if you start more than one upload at the same time in separate browser tabs to make things more efficient, these uploads compete for your upload bandwidth, making each one slow down significantly.

Note that each social platform is different — it has different audiences and people interacting with video in different ways — so in many cases, it’s best practice to publish different video cuts optimized for each platform.

With that said, we found three services that can help you upload one video to many of the popular social video sites with one click – saving you the hassle of individual uploads and avoiding slow parallel uploads altogether!

Video Seeder

Overview: This is a desktop windows based app, and runs from your own PC to publish all posts from your own IP, so that you get the maximum reach from your share.


Content Distribution: If is a content distribution tool, it may help you distribute your videos across multiple platforms, which can increase your content’s visibility and reach a broader audience.

Time-Saving: Automation tools can save you time by streamlining the process of uploading and sharing videos on various platforms.

Analytics: Many content distribution tools provide analytics and insights to help you track the performance of your videos on different platforms, allowing you to refine your strategy based on data.

Consistency: Such tools can assist in maintaining a consistent posting schedule, which is crucial for building an online presence.

Customization: Depending on its features, might allow you to customize your video posts for different platforms, adding unique captions, descriptions, and tags.


All looks good but as of this writing we were not able to register an account to start using!

Price:  The free versions enables you to upload 5 videos a month. Premium allows you to distribute unlimited videos for $1.99 a month.

Buffer for Video

Overview: With Buffer for video, you can upload a video once, on your schedule, and share it to multiple social media networks at the time that’s right for you and your audience. Drop your video into the Buffer composer window or choose the file you’d like to upload, and Buffer will do the rest!

You can add to your queue or share your video at any time during the ‘Preparing Video’ step. Once the video finishes uploading you can choose your favorite thumbnail, give your video a title, and add your message. Now you’re ready to share or schedule to any and all of your social media profiles!


By far one of my favorite features on Buffer is the ability to customize posts for different social media accounts. This makes it easy to start with the same base post and then optimize it for each platform.

Good list of social channels to connect to: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twittter


Expensive analytics: The upgrade you need to access your analytics is quite expensive, and I have come across other tools that provide the same or even more for a lesser priced plan.

No Media Library: The one feature I have found on another social media planning tool that I wish Buffer had is a media library. This allows you to upload videos you aren’t using right away to have them readily available when you do decide to use them. This is not a feature in Buffer.

Price: Buffer pricing starts at $15.00 per month. There is a free 14-day trial.


Overview: Vimeo expanded the ability to publish videos as native posts to social destinations like Facebook and YouTube.

Because platforms tend to favor native uploads, publishing natively boosts your videos’ visibility, and helps you succeed wherever you choose to distribute videos. Instead of having to upload videos to each social account, you can publish from your Videos page in a couple clicks. Plus, you can track stats for your social posts right from your Vimeo stats dashboard.


Publishing to social platforms is different than simply sharing the link on those platforms, in that the video is uploaded as a native video, making the experience seamless for your viewers.

No additional fees for getting statistics.

They make it easier for you to track the analytics and engagement of your video on each particular platform right from a dashboard in your Vimeo account. After you’ve published a video to social, go to your Video Manager and navigate to Analytics > Social to views, likes and comments and how it’s performing overall.


Video Manager won’t show analytics for videos shared on Twitter. You’ll be able to see certain engagement analytics on Twitter’s side, which will include retweets and likes but not video analytics.

The Vimeo videos do not appear on search engine results.

Price:  Publishing to social is available for Plus ($7), Pro ($20), Business ($50), and Premium members ($75) to share their videos directly on social platforms.

Overview: Easily repurpose your videos from TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Zoom, Google Drive, DropBox, and Webex into 20+ pieces of content and automatically publish them to all your favourite social media platforms.


Time-Saving: can save you time by automating the process of repurposing and distributing content. You can create content once and then use the tool to adapt it for different platforms, such as turning a video into a podcast or blog post.

Multi-Platform Distribution: It allows you to distribute your content on multiple platforms, such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. This can help you reach a wider audience and increase your content’s visibility.

Consistency: can help you maintain a consistent content schedule by automatically publishing or sharing content at specified times. This can be especially helpful for social media marketing.

Customization: While it automates many tasks, also offers customization options, allowing you to tailor your content for each platform. You can add custom intros and outros to videos or podcasts, for example.

Analytics: The platform provides basic analytics to track the performance of your repurposed content on different platforms. This can help you measure the effectiveness of your content strategy.


Cost: is a paid service, and the cost can be a con for small businesses or individuals with limited budgets. Pricing may vary depending on your needs and the number of platforms you want to use it for.

Limited Automation: While can automate many content distribution tasks, it may not cover every aspect of your content strategy. You may still need to manually engage with your audience on different platforms and respond to comments or messages.

Learning Curve: Like any new software, there is a learning curve associated with Users may need some time to understand how to set up their accounts and configure automation settings correctly.

Content Quality: While automation is convenient, it’s important to ensure that repurposed content maintains its quality. Automated content may sometimes lack the personal touch and engagement that comes with manual content creation and distribution.

Price:  Subscription fee ranging from $0 to $20.75/mo (U.S.) depending on the time plan you select.
