#1430 new enhancement

Auto post published videos to YouTube channel

Reported by: BrashRebel Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: WordPress.tv Keywords:


WordPress.tv has a YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/WordPressTV which has never been utilized to date. After some discussion, the WPTV team has come to a consensus that videos published on WordPress.tv would be wonderful to share on YouTube as well. Since YouTube does have an API for posting videos, it is possible for us to implement some functionality that will allow a content to be pushed to YouTube when successfully published on WPTV.

The old channel https://www.youtube.com/wordpresstv should no longer be used.
The official channel https://www.youtube.com/wordpress is getting all videos from WPTV of WordCamps happening in 2018 or later with a script that is running locally on a WPTV moderator's laptop (download from WPTV, upload to YouTube).

Better ways will hopefully be implemented soon...

Switching to YouTube and keep WordPress.tv as archive (and with more info) has been on the list for years. We should start with at least having the YT API on WordPress.tv and decide how to move forward:
1) Use YouTube as uploader and then Moderators sync back to WPTV. (Pro: High quality videos, bulk upload; Con: Extra info missing, no direct link with the event (e.g. WordCamp))
2) Continue with WordPress.tv as frontend and create a routine that pushing the videos after a few hours to YouTube (Pro: Video flow can be handled more easily; Con: The uploader will need a very good code review, basic video quality)
Anyhow, for any 'basic' actions we would start with, the API is needed.
