Export to Youtube

    Follow

    You can connect your Screen9 account with one or many Youtube accounts and then have videos automatically exported with meta data attached.

    Connect your Youtube account

    Connect your Youtube account(s) by going to Account settings->Export in console. In the "Connect Youtube Account" box, give your account a name and click the Add button. Note that the name can be any name you like, it has nothing to do with your login information to Youtube.

    When you click the Add button, you will be redirected to a google accounts page where you login with the Youtube account that you wish to make the connection to. Select the account and follow Google's instructions. 

    Exporting videos

    With your account connected, you now have the ability to export videos to said accounts. Each video has a "Youtube status" box on their edit page and by clicking the "Export" button, the Screen9 system submits the file to youtube including meta data. Exported videos will show their publishing status and you can also delete videos from youtube by clicking the "Remove" button.

    How and what meta data is exported

    Title, description and tags are synchronized with Youtube. This means that if you change your meta data in any way, those changes are sent to Youtube. The synchronisation doesn't work the other way though so if you make changes in Youtube, they will not be reflected in Screen9 and they will also be overwritten the next time you make any changes in Screen9.

      I get an error message when trying to export : not allowed on cloned media. Is it really not possible to enable other S9 accounts to first clone a video and then upload to their YouTube channel (which I guess only they can authorize by following Google instructions)?
