Generate YouTube video browser-based uploading form by PHP

Here is an example how to generate YouTube video browser-based uploading form by PHP:

$youtube_email = “”; // Change this to your youtube sign in email.
$youtube_password = “password”; // Change this to your youtube sign in password.

$postdata = “Email=”.$youtube_email.”&Passwd=”.$youtube_password.”&service=youtube&source=Example”;
$curl = curl_init(“;);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, “Content-Type:application/x-www-form-urlencoded”);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $postdata);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 1);
$response = curl_exec($curl);

list($auth, $youtubeuser) = explode(“\n”, $response);
list($authlabel, $authvalue) = array_map(“trim”, explode(“=”, $auth));
list($youtubeuserlabel, $youtubeuservalue) = array_map(“trim”, explode(“=”, $youtubeuser));

$youtube_video_title = “Example”; // This is the uploading video title.
$youtube_video_description = “Example”; // This is the uploading video description.
$youtube_video_category = “News”; // This is the uploading video category.
$youtube_video_keywords = “example, video”; // This is the uploading video keywords.

$data = ‘<?xml version=”1.0″?>
<entry xmlns=”;
<media:title type=”plain”>’.$youtube_video_title.'</media:title>
<media:description type=”plain”>’.$youtube_video_description.'</media:description>

$key = “adf15ee97731bca89da876c…a8dc”; // Get your key here:

$headers = array(“Authorization: GoogleLogin auth=”.$authvalue,
“GData-Version: 2”,
“X-GData-Key: key=”.$key,
“Content-length: “.strlen($data),
“Content-Type: application/atom+xml; charset=UTF-8”);

$curl = curl_init(“;);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 10);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_REFERER, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);

$response = simplexml_load_string(curl_exec($curl));
<script type=”text/javascript”>
function checkForFile() {
if (document.getElementById(‘file’).value) {
return true;
document.getElementById(‘errMsg’).style.display = ”;
return false;

$nexturl = “;; // This parameter specifies the URL to which YouTube will redirect the user’s browser when the user uploads his video file.

<form action=”<?php echo($response->url); ?>?nexturl=<?php echo(urlencode($nexturl)); ?>” method=”post” enctype=”multipart/form-data” onsubmit=”return checkForFile();”>
<input id=”file” type=”file” name=”file”/>
<div id=”errMsg” style=”display:none;color:red”>
You need to specify a file.
<input type=”hidden” name=”token” value=”<?php echo($response->token); ?>”/>
<input type=”submit” value=”go” />
