Ubuntu – Youtube Uploader


Are there any desktop applications for uploading video to youtube?

Best Answer

  • Try using googlecl

    sudo apt-get install googlcl

    this tool provides a user-friendly command-line interface to some of the Google Data Protocol (gdata) APIs.

    You can nicely upload a video to YouTube from the command line with the command:

    google youtube post --category Education --devtags GoogleCL test.mp4

    This will upload the video test.mp4 to your YouTube (the one you granted GoogleCL access to) account, in the Education category. This is a simple test, so check this useful guide.
