Live 70: The YouTube Upload Python API

JUNE 5, 2022

In Live 70—I learned about YouTube's Upload Python API, which allows us to programmatically upload high-resolution videos to YouTube from a client application or the command-line interface.

Among other things, we learned how to create a Google Cloud Platform project and create API keys and OAuth 2.0 credentials to authenticate custom applications to different Google APIs. We also saw how to restrict your client id and secret to a specific IP address during testing and how to scope our application to certain API calls (say, uploading videos to YouTube or changing video thumbnails).

If this is something that interests you, please let me know on Twitter or, even better, on the Discord community.

Thanks for watching.

See you next week!
