Django Youtube is a wrapper app around youtube api. It helps you to implement frequent api operations easily.
The main functionality is to use Youtube API to upload videos and show them in your website. In order use this app, you need a developer account on Youtube and use them to authenticate, and upload videos into this account.
Django Youtube designed to work with built in
contrib.auth app, although you can modify the views.py to work without authentication.
Please feel free to fork and contribute! There are lots of things that I am not happy with, if you're interested, send a message.

gdata python library (http://code.google.com/p/gdata-python-client/downloads/list)
pip install django-youtube or add
django_youtube folder at your python path.
django_youtube to your installed apps
Add following lines to your settings.py and edit them accordingly
YOUTUBE_AUTH_EMAIL = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' YOUTUBE_AUTH_PASSWORD = 'yourpassword' YOUTUBE_DEVELOPER_KEY = 'developer key, get one from http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/dashboard/' YOUTUBE_CLIENT_ID = 'client-id'
Optionally you can add following lines to your settings. If you don't set them, default settings will be used.
# url to redirect after upload finishes, default is respected `video` page YOUTUBE_UPLOAD_REDIRECT_URL = '/youtube/videos/' # url to redirect after deletion video, default is `upload page` YOUTUBE_DELETE_REDIRECT_URL = '/myurl/'
Add Following lines to your urls.py file
Don't forget to run
/youtube/upload/ to upload video files directly to youtube. When you upload a file, the video entry is created on youtube,
Video model that includes video details (
title, etc.) created on your db and a signal sent that you can add your logic to it.
After successful upload, it redirects to the specified page at
YOUTUBE_UPLOAD_REDIRECT_URL, if no page is specified, it redirects to the corresponding video page.
Youtube API is integrated to the
Video model. In order to change information of the video on Youtube, just save the model instance as you normally do,
django_youtube will do the necessary changes using Youtube API.
Api methods can be used separately. Please see
api.py to get info about methods. Please note that some operations requires authentication. Api methods will not do more than one operation, i.e. will not call authenticate method. So you will need to authenticate manually. Otherwise api methods will raise
OperationError. Please see
views.py for a sample implementation.
You can use views for uploading, displaying, deleting the videos.
You can also override templates to customise the html.
Iframe API used for displaying the videos for convenience. Please see Youtube API Docs (https://developers.google.com/youtube/) to implement other player API's on your template files. Other options are
video_created sent after video upload finished and video created successfully. You can also choose to register
post_save event of
Following is an example of how you process the signal
from django_youtube.models import video_created from django.dispatch import receiver @receiver(video_created) def video_created_callback(sender, **kwargs): """ Youtube Video is created. Not it's time to do something about it """ pass
