Publishing to Youtube™

Follow
Ensemble Content administrators can setup a YouTube™ feed to publish video content to a YouTube™ account. This is useful if content administrators want to house their content in Ensemble Video, but also publish their content to YouTube™. Additionally, you can un-publish content from YouTube™.
 

Configuring the YouTube™ Integration

To begin, click Administration > Library YouTube™ in the navigation pane. The Client ID, Client Secret and API Key fields are generated by the Google API Manager.

If the Client ID and Client Secret Fields are blank, the YouTube™ feed has not been configured. Click the Google Developers Console link to visit to the Google API Manager.

When prompted, log in to Google using the account associated with the desired YouTube™ account. If you have not created a YouTube™ account, you should create one now.
