View Full Version : YouTube API?

June 20th, 2008, 10:35 AM
Are there any plans to use a YouTube API so that users can upload through VBulletin to youtube, yet it looks like they never leave the Vbulletin website?

Basically using YouTube to store the files, instead of my own hosting.

I doubt it, what you need is something like clipshare

vbtube.com has just come out with a new version that allows video uploading to the server.

But it also has functionality to upload to youtube, like I was asking for.

I have a small website and limited resources so I want to use Youtube's bandwidth and storage to keep costs down.

I really like the way PhotoPost integrates to VBulletin though, it looks really clean. I'd rather use PP.

Any ideas how hard it would be to mod PP to do this?

well Photopost requires the files to be on a server path accessible to Photopost so you can not use an external url to host an image.

Thanks, that makes my decision easy.

I think your going to find most photo gallery applications require the photos to be stored on the server you serve them from. YouTube Flickr all those systems as well require stuff to be served from their own servers as you upload the video to them.
