How to Let Others Upload Videos to Your YouTube Channel

You are running a YouTube channel and yes it is really promising because you are getting lots subscribers. The truth is that you are not just getting subscribers because of how good your contents are, users subscribe because they always see new uploads and updates on a channel. Don’t get me wrong, everyone (users) loves good content. With this said, I guess you know what I am about to say next. Do you keep your channel updated always? Some of you guys will say yes and some will say sometimes, while about 80% will say no.

Here is the truth. It is not easy keeping a YouTube channel updated especially when you are the only one always doing it and you and I know how important this is. Before you begin to wonder, yes! you need help updating that channel. Call up your friends and family who love what you do and who can also contribute with good contents. If you have the cash, you can also pay freelancers to help you out.

Now you have people who are going to help you out. The question now is; How do they upload contents to your channel? Are they to register for a Google Account? Are you going to provide them with your login details? Remember, only the owner of a YouTube channel can upload videos to that channel and he/she cannot delegate the task to someone else. So what do you do next to overcome this challenge? .

Still thinking? Here is a solution i stumbled upon that will definitely be of great help to you. Create a YouTube Uploader which multiple people can use to upload contents to your channel. If you are ready, then here is the procedure as provided by Amit Agarwal of Labnol;

  1. Click here to make a copy of the YouTube Uploader script in your Google Drive. It is recommended that you create a new Google account to test the YouTube Uploader before using it with your main account.
  2. Enable the YouTube API for your Google project. Go to Resources > Cloud Platform Project, click the project name and enable the YouTube Data API from the API library.
  3. While inside the script editor, go to Publish > Deploy as Web App and click Update.
  4. You’ll be presented with an authorization screen as the script needs permission to upload videos on your behalf and also send email notifications when a new video is uploaded. Click Allow.

Note:

  • When deploying the web app,  choose “Me” under the “Execute the App as” section and “Anyone, even anonymous” under the “Who has access to the app” section.
  • If you would like to disable the uploader, go to Resources > Deploy as web app and choose “Disable web app.
