Batch upload talk videos to YouTube

Project description

This package uploads recordings from Pyvo to YouTube using YouTube API v3. It is based heavily on Google example code. It reads video metadata YAML files generated by Petr Viktorin’s talk video maker.


First, you need to authenticate with Google using OAuth 2.0. For that, you need client secrets file. One is bundled, you can also make your own in the Google Developers Console.

During the first run, you’ll get prompted to authenticate to a YouTube channel by opening a webpage in a browser and copying back a token. Those credentials are then stored by default in ~/.config/talk-video-uploader/youtube_credentials.json.

To upload videos, create a YAML file with metadata for each video file and give path to those files as arguments to talk-video-uploader.
