Uploading videos—YouTube permission for TP blocked by Google

Travel Forums System Talk Uploading videos—YouTube permission for TP blocked by Google

I'm trying to upload a YouTube video (created and uploaded by me) to Travellers Point and when requesting permission to Authorize with YouTube I get this response 'This app is blocked
This app tried to access sensitive info in your Google Account. To keep your account safe, Google blocked this access.'

I've tried logging into my Google account and using their suggestion of creating and using an App password just for TP but I get the same message above. Any suggestions please - I've searched the forums and can't find anyone else having reported this issue.
Thanks, Kay

It is definitely an ongoing issue and unfortunately not trivial to fix. I'd probably just remove the ability entirely to be honest.

Which brings me to the alternative - upload the video directly to Youtube. Then when you are writing a blog post on Travellerspoint, insert it using the video icon in the blog writing editor.

Thanks! I thought the 'authority' was necessary. That worked - cheers.
