Uploading and submitting a video recording via YouTube
Only for Rockschool exams & AMEB Performance Evaluations.
Video Repertoire & P Plate Piano exams are submitted via AMEB Connect.
Some video examination performances are submitted privately to AMEB Victoria via YouTube. The enrolling person or candidate must create a Google account, then a YouTube channel, to which the video will be uploaded. The visibility setting should be set to unlisted so that the video can be shared with AMEB but will not appear in YouTube search results.
Alternative video file sharing services such as Vimeo, Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox may be used by schools and private studios who have an account with that service. Care must be taken to ensure that the file sharing setting enables viewing of the video by AMEB Examiners and administrative personnel. (Please test the link before submitting it to AMEB.)
