Youtube Activator


Based on the problematic, that no current tool on the market was able to cope with the simple task of chaning a videos status.

Functionalities like this exist for Facebook, Twitter etc.

to automate you publishing routine.

You just need to enter your credentials and API-Key at the top of the yt-activator.php and specify the ApplicationID as you set it at the Google Code Dashboard.

When setting a video public a mail is sent automatically to the admin.

Just enter you Youtube credentials and the Google Code API Key in the variables of the yt-activator.php in the plugin directory.


To faciliate best compatibility this plugin works by using the frequently tested and updated Zend_Gdata library.

If you have any problem with this plugin it would be wise to update this library, which resides in the same directory as the yt-activator.php

The code for the plugin itself is very small and not really prone to errors, so any complications might likely occur due to changes on the Youtube API
