Explore how to configure VideoTMS™ to automatically publish your media and subtitles to YouTube.

Important: Youtube is a Push-only integration.
VideoTMS™ can’t programmatically ingest videos stored in your YouTube channel, as this would be in breach of YouTube’s ToS.

When a YouTube configuration is setup for a project, VideoTMS™ can ingest media from any other source (OVPs, Dropbox, external links, or manual uploads), then, when the subtitles are ready to be published, the platform will upload the video to your YouTube channel, along with its subtitles.

Select your video privacy settings and Connect to YouTube

Your media can be uploaded to your YouTube channel with Public, Private or Unlisted default privacy settings; here is more info on YouTube’s privacy settings. Select your desired default setting and click “Connect to YouTube.”

Please make sure pop-ups are not blocked for this site, or you won’t be able to complete the authentication.


Sign in to your YouTube account

After clicking “Connect to YouTube” a popup will open prompting you to sign into your YouTube Channel, if you aren’t already signed in.

When your workflow reaches the first Push step in the workflow, for example, right after the source language caption review, the platform will create a new video entry on your YouTube channel, and attach the source language captions as well. Subsequent pushes (i.e. for translations) will be associated to the same video on YouTube.
