Youtube video uploader


Well-known member
I would like to be able to use a single youtube account to store videos uploaded by the members of my community.

This seems to be possible based on what is said here: http://www.youtube.com/youtubeonyoursite

Site-owned videos: Using the YouTube APIs, you can upload all user videos into your YouTube account. In essence, you will own these videos, and your users should be made aware of this. Once the videos are uploaded, you can query and embed them into your site using the YouTube embedded player.
There is an API available: https://code.google.com/apis/youtube/2.0/developers_guide_php.html

The main features would be:
  • Usergroup permissions to allow access to the upload form
  • Allow user to specify video title and tags
  • Some sort of logging of what user uploaded what video
  • Automatic posting to specific forum whenever a new video is uploaded

As a follow up to this, perhaps the xenforo 'page' node type would be an ideal place to add such a feature like this, as you can restrict access to it already without any hassle, and it would be just a form the user needs to have access to.
