Video Uploader 3.0 is a YouTube API-based PHP script that lets you add YouTube uploading functionality to your own website or web application. It allows your users to upload videos directly to your own YouTube Channel, without the need to sign in to YouTube or even have Google Account. The script uses the latest version (3.0) of YouTube Application Programming Interface (API) to upload videos and and set the video’s metadata (title, description, tags, status, and category).

progress so your users don’t have to second guess how long uploading videos
is going to take. You can set video file size limit and video types with
ease to ensure your website is free from abuse.  

To make this script work, you’ll need to create and authorize an app in
Google Developer Console at   (very
easy, see instructions).You can integrate this script in any application
with minimum effort and without the need to use MySQL unless you need to
save user’s logs and info.
