Syndication with YouTube
Was this article helpful?
You can syndicate content to your YouTube channel in Backlot using your Google YouTube login account. We use the OAuth 2.0 protocol to authorize Backlot users to publish (syndicate) videos to YouTube. With this type of authorization, you can login to your Backlot account, click Authorize and login to your Google YouTube account in a pop-up window. Once you login to your Google YouTube account, you click OK and start exporting your Backlot videos (syndication) to YouTube.
Choosing Other YouTube Accounts for Syndication
While Backlot does let you associate a syndication with another one of your accounts, once you do so, you cannot modify the original videos that you uploaded to YouTube under the previous account. When you switch accounts, all videos uploaded on the previous account stay on YouTube but they will be un-managed. These videos (and any new videos) will be uploaded separately from Backlot to the other YouTube account and will have new videoIDs.If you do need to associate an existing Backlot syndication to YouTube with one of your other accounts:
When Multiple Users Are Associated with a Single Channel
Backlot supports linking a syndication feed to a single YouTube channel. Only one syndication feed can manage that channel (even if the syndication is authenticated through different YouTube accounts). Backlot allows you to switch from one YouTube account to another and still continue to manage the video assets. You can do this if (and only if) both accounts manage the same YouTube channel.
