Youtube Releases New API

Youtube finally has reworked their API to allow for uploading of videos. This was a huge problem in integrating YouTube in Social Media Campaigns.

Here are some of the things you can do with the YouTube Data API now:
  • Create a web front end to let people view videos about specific topics.
  • Create a desktop application or plugin that plays videos in a customized environment.
  • Add related, dynamic video content to your website or application.
  • Customise the Flash player to fit the look and feel of your site, device or application
  • Add feeds of videos from each of YouTube's 18 international domains
The upload was the biggest addition for me. It is something that I have wanted for a while now.However the cool new chrome JavaScript player is pretty awesome too. You can really customize and embed a new user video player experience in any site.
