You can mark your songs as favorites and view them in the "Your Favorites" folder later. Just click the heart icon next to the song to mark it as a favorite. If you're using songs from this library, there's no need to worry about getting permission from the copyright owner, as all songs are licensed for use in your video.

To upload, navigate through your computer files where your digital music is stored. Upload time will depend on your Internet connection and the file size of your song. Your music files must be kept under 10 minutes in length and 10MB in size.
