Brid’s YouTube syndication provides our Premium plan partners an option to easily export any video they add into Brid automatically to their YouTube account and channel. Once you have activated this feature you can easily syndicate your video content to your YouTube channel in Brid by using your Google YouTube login account. We use the OAuth 2.0 protocol to authorize Brid users to publish videos to YouTube. Brid’s YouTube syndication is “one-way” – that means your settings and content in Brid are pushed to YouTube, but the same rule doesn’t apply for Youtube, settings and content on YouTube are not dragged into Brid.
When you authorize YouTube syndication for one of your Google accounts you can’t change the Google account used. After you have published your video on YouTube, the changes you make in Brid will not effect your video content on YouTube, so if you update any metadata contents in Brid, those changes will not transfer to YouTube. If you need to set up or change any meta data for that video, you will have to do it manually in YouTube’s dashboard. There are no limits in regards to the duration of the video, and currently you can only syndicate videos which have a maximum size of 1GB.
How can I activate my Brid’s YouTube syndication feature?
Here’s how to prepare your account to syndicate videos to YouTube:
- Login into Brid.
- On your site list click on the gear icon.
- Check the checkbox “Enable site for YouTube syndication of videos”.
- In the pop-up, log in to the Google YouTube account to which you want to syndicate your content. If you have multiple Google accounts, you can only select one for exporting videos from Brid to YouTube.
- Follow the on-screen prompts to authorize the syndication, then click OK.
- Click on SAVE back on the Brid Manage Website screen.
Once you have done the following steps you will have a new checkbox option ( “Publish on YouTube“) available on the ADD VIDEO screen when adding videos into Brid. If you want to syndicate your video content check this checkbox.
When you syndicate a video from Brid to YouTube, the video will become public. A HTTP cookie will be set on your machine which will remember this option, so that any future video added to your account can have this option enabled by default.
All videos syndicated to YouTube through Brid will go to your default channel (People & Blogs) in YouTube.
