I can upload videos from You Tube to my space in Amara but I can't seem to find a way to upload a short video from my own computer.
Is it possible?
No, there is no easier option. However, if you are reuploading other people's videos in your YouTube channel, you might get into trouble: see YouTube's copyright school.
Also, you write: "Now Amara streams it in my space (in Amara) and from my channel in YouTube". Does it mean that you have done the automatic syncing of Amara subs to your YouTube account that Amara has been pushing with a banner on top of all pages since February?
If so, see my Misgivings about the "Sync subtitles" (etc) post and all the unattended video deletion requests motivated by the consequences of this syncing from February on in Removing subtitles or videos. Are you sure you want to give Amara

Hello calmansi justanAmarauser
Sorry to take so long to get back to you
I'm not sure where I am with your questions as I'm not yet familiar with YouTube and what a channel is
The video I uploaded to YouTube was in fact a Holstee video which I had already subtitled in Swedish
The reason I did this was to have all the videos I have subtitled on one page.
The video did not have subtitles of course and I had to upload them too.
As you said that videos are not hosted but streamed, I thought that it would be ok but I'm stupid, cos of course the video is still on my channel at YouTube
I had tried to stream it from its original location on Youtube but something kept stopping me (probably what you talk about but I don't really understand-sync subtitles.
Managing my YouTube account (reading about it that is), is on my to do list but it's been really busy this week
