About

Python script to upload videos on YouTube using Selenium that allows to upload more than 61 videos per day which is the maximum [1] for all other tools that use the YouTube Data API v3.

1: Since the projects that enable the YouTube Data API have a default quota allocation of 10,000 units per day [2] and a video upload has a cost of approximately 1,600 units [3]: 10,000 / 1,600 = 6.25.

Instead, this script is only restricted by a daily upload limit for a channel on YouTube:

100 videos is the limit in the first 24 hours, then drops to 50 every 24 hours after that. [4]

Package Installation

pip3 install --upgrade youtube-uploader-selenium

Script Installation

git clone https://github.com/linouk23/youtube_uploader_selenium
cd youtube-uploader-selenium

Package Usage

from youtube_uploader_selenium import YouTubeUploader

video_path = '123/rockets.flv'
metadata_path = '123/rockets_metadata.json'

uploader = YouTubeUploader(video_path, metadata_path, thumbnail_path)
was_video_uploaded, video_id = uploader.upload()
assert was_video_uploaded

Script Usage

At a minimum, just specify a video:

python3 upload.py --video rockets.flv

If it is the first time you've run the script, a browser window should popup and prompt you to provide YouTube credentials (and then simply press Enter after a successful login). A token will be created and stored in a file in the local directory for subsequent use.

Video title, description and other metadata can specified via a JSON file using the --meta flag:

python3 upload.py --video rockets.flv --meta metadata.json

An example JSON file would be:

{
  "title": "Best Of James Harden | 2019-20 NBA Season",
  "description": "Check out the best of James Harden's 2019-20 season so far!",
  "tags": ["James", "Harden", "NBA"]
}
