Allow supporters to upload video via Youtube to your website
This would be great if it wasn't controlled by Youtube so your account could be deleted
if it upset a corporation. But useful tho'
YouTube's video platform has enabled a new generation of content creators to connect with billions of viewers every day. There's a great opportunity for organizations to leverage this online activity for video campaigns, coverage, or programming initiatives - but many find it difficult to connect directly with YouTube's community in a simple, effective way. We've just made that a lot easier with YouTube Direct.
YouTube Direct allows you to embed the upload functionality of YouTube directly into your own site, enabling your organization to request, review, and re-broadcast user-submitted videos with ease. News organizations can ask for citizen reporting; nonprofits can call-out for support videos around social campaigns; businesses can ask users to submit promotional videos about your brand.
