Workflow

Request: the code to send to the API

Send a POST request with the data below to the endpoint /push/identities/<identity_token>/youtube/video.json to post a new video on behalf of a YouTube user. The <identity_token> is obtained whenever one of your users connects using a social network account.

In opposition to other API endpoints, the request is processed asynchronously. The video will be added to a queue, downloaded by our system and then uploaded to YouTube. The upload duration depends on the video size. If you specify a callback_url, the result will be posted to that URL once the request has been processed.

To be able to use this endpoint, YouTube must be fully configured for your OneAll Site. The permission Upload Videos has to be enabled and the user must have given consent to publish content on his behalf when he logged in with YouTube.
