We just finished off work on a new video uploading system that now handles uploads direct to Youtube or Vimeo. The previous uploader has not been working for quite a while now, so this is a much needed improvement on that. Not only does it actually work (yay), but it taps into two of the best video hosting platforms out there.

To start using the uploader, here are the steps you need to follow:

1. You will need to have an account on either one of the services first. In brief - Vimeo is better quality, but slow processing unless you pay. Youtube is very fast at processing but the quality is not quite as good. Up to you :)

2. Head to the "My Videos" link in your control panel (top of site). You will see links on the right to authorize with these services. Click the one you want and hit allow

3. Upload away

In fact, you don't even need to upload through us. Once you have authorized with Youtube/Vimeo, we will sync your video gallery here with what you uploaded there already. This means you straight away have access to all the videos that you uploaded there previously. It also means you can use their own uploaders if that's more convenient (they would have mobile apps for example). The videos will still become available in your Travellerspoint gallery when it's synced.

If you don't want the syncing to happen you can turn that off. If you want to remove videos from here, then you can do that. Optionally, you can then also delete them from the provider site (be careful, if you tick that, your video will be totally deleted)

I think that about covers it.

Happy video'ing everybody

Sweet!

Just to be clear, syncing is one way only, correct? Ie. the videos already uploaded to Travellerspoint don't actually get synced over to Youtube/Vimeo if you link up the accounts?

Correct. Hmm, I wonder if we can word that more clearly somehow..

Is my blog now supposed to automatically show my youtube videos?

I have synced both and even though I have videos on youtube already they do not appear at all in Travellerspoint, am I missing something?

They won't automatically show on your blog unless you insert them into an entry there. But something doesn't seem to have worked if you've set up the syncing already, as otherwise your youtube videos would show here. Does it say Youtube syncing is ON when you visit that page? Where is your video gallery on youtube?

None of the Youtube videos show up on that page, it says I have no videos?

I can always just upload new videos through here and they should sync to You Tube but it would have been good to also have the 3 I have already done.

My youtube channel is here http://www.youtube.com/user/fredthespider177?feature=guide.

Thanks for your help so far.

Hmm, those videos aren't private in any case, but could it be they are setup as 'you have to have the link to view them'? I'll also have the developer double check this, as when I tested with my own videos, it did work. Have you tried switching off the sync, then turning it back on?

Yep tried turning it off and on a few times but still nothing. It's not really a problem I'll just use the new downloader and hopefully future videos will sync with You tube.
