Step one: Dragging your songs/videos into ccPublisher

Start the ccPublisher application and hit Next on the introductory screen. The process starts by adding your files to be tagged/uploaded. You can use the browse function to find the files, or simply drag and drop as many files that you would like to license (all with the same license) and upload.

Step two: Adding information about your works

The next screen will ask for information about your work, which will help others find it at the ccHost Installation.

Step three: Choose your license

Step eight: Fill submission form

Filling submission form is an easy task, considering you had provided the information in the previous screens. It will verify if the license you had chosen is allowed by the server. If not, you will have to choose another one between the allowed. If you hover the mouse cursor over any field, a tip box will appears, explaining what it means.

Step nine: Start your upload

The final step is to upload your works. Depending on your connection and the size of files you are uploading, this step can take anywhere from a few seconds to several hours.

Step ten: All done!

When your upload is complete, click Next and the Publisher application will furnish you with a URL at the installation you have choosen. If you'd like to use a file-sharing application or add the files to your own website, the file can be found in its original location on your computer, which you can upload to a site or move into a shared downloads folder for P2P (for more info, see our tutorial for sharing your CC music via Morpheus).
