If you have a lot of videos to update in your Video Manager, going through them one-by-one to make the same update over and over again can be incredibly tedious.  Well, now YouTube has introduced "Bulk Actions" to the fray, where you can now select multiple videos in your Video Manager and change everything on the videos you selected from monetization to tags to privacy settings and more.  Just tell it to update and then you're done.  Pretty why couldn't they have thought of this earlier?  Anyway, let's take a look at all the different tasks you can now apply across multiple videos.

YouTube's Bulk Actions

  • Go to your Video Manager
  • Click on "Actions" and then on the drop-down menu, click on "Advanced."

    It's interesting to see all the various sub-choices that each new action has... i.e. you'll get different choices for adjusting TAGS than you will for working on TITLES, etc. Some of them are shown here:
