Automatic upload to youtube from CatDv?

Good afternoon all,

Can anyone please advise if it's possible to create a rule whereby a video will automatically export itself from CatDv to YouTube when it's been saved?

Many thanks in advance!

There are a few ways to do this, but all involve outside scripting or varying degrees. The YouTube API is pretty well developed these days.

We've been contacted by a few folks but no one's really put a PO out for it yet.

If you don't need the metadata to change each time, it's relatively easy using Python. If you need the metadata sent with it, there's a bit more work to do and you might do it using php.

It can be done, and the HiDefCowboy crew has looked into it It's just a matter of time and desire and how far you want the script to go with uploading metadata etc.

If you have in-house scripters/coders, look at some of the Python resources out there. If not and you need help, contact your reseller or us and I'm sure you can get it sorted.

Episode has some youtube functionality that can be utilized with CatDV very easily but like Bryson says if you want the metadata to change then some scripting will be required.

Katie,

Did you get this sorted? We will have this ready after the holidays if you still need it. It's running solidly in beta now.

The workflow publishes to YouTube the video, the Title, Description, Category and Keywords from CatDV metadata and then once the video is published it records the URL from YouTube back into your clip record so you can both quickly view it, and track the original file it came from.

This workflow requires Worker Node v4 to publish the URL back to CatDV automatically. Otherwise we can write it to a local log file if you have Worker 3.
