  1. Hi thanks for writing this. Do you know how to switch between managed accounts on Camera Roll? For example a business and personal account that are both linked to the same email address at login stage for both Google+ and YouTube. On both those platforms, when you login you normally have the option to select which user profile to use. With camera roll, there does not seem to be that option. Therefore at the moment all my videos are being uploaded to a personal youtube channel and not a business one – any ideas here, massively appreciated. Thanks, Peter

  2. It looks informative, but a bit complicated. I usually use a more efficient way (Apowersoft Phone Manager) to transfer my iPhone video to PC and then directly transfer it to Youtube. Upload any videos you want on your iphone without any limitation.
