Ensemble Content administrators can setup a YouTube feed to publish video content to a YouTube account. This is useful if content administrators want to house their content in Ensemble Video, but also publish their content to YouTube. Additionally, you can un-publish content from YouTube.

Configuring the Youtube Feed

To begin, click Administration > Library > Youtube in the navigation pane. The Client ID and Client Secret fields are generated by the Google API Manager.

If the Client ID and Client Secret Fields are blank, the Youtube feed has not been configured. Click the Google Developers Console link to visit to the Google API Manager.
