Aptly named Upload to YouTube, ready for Windows Phone 8.1 users
Upload to YouTube is now available for free in the Windows Phone Store, where it is the first YouTube uploader for Windows Phone 8.1. The app does exactly what its name suggests it does, which is upload video to the streaming video site. From your camera roll, click on Share and then Upload to YouTube. Or, you can open the app, and go rummaging through your phone (you can visit your saved downloads, for example) to find a video that you want the world to see.

A couple of interesting things about the app. One, it won't upload to YouTube if it is running in the background. That might be okay with you for short clips, but if you're uploading a video of junior's ten rounds in the spelling bee, you might be making too much of a sacrifice to brag about your kid's spelling prowess on YouTube.

The other problem the app has is more cosmetic. The light grey UI makes it look like all of the buttons are greyed out, when the truth is they are functioning and are usable.

You can check out the Upload to YouTube app by clicking on the sourcelink below.

At top, the app's UI makes these buttons appear greyed out although they are active; on bottom, the app will not upload video if it is being run in the background

This is not the first for WP.... Contrary to the uniformed non WP user, and haters, there really isn't any "first" left for WP.. WP is already thereā•
