This project is actively maintained and will continue so until I'm tired of it.
With the Youtube Data API you are awarded with 10,000 points of requests. For one video upload it costs 1605 points, regardless of file size, which calculates to about 6 uploads daily. Once you have exhausted your daily points, you have to wait till daily reset. Resets happens at 0:00 PST, i.e. 12:30 IST. So make your uploads count.
Uploading copyright contents will leads to immediate blocking of the video, and will not be added to your
MyVideos section of youtube. But still the video can be played directly through the link provided by the bot.
All the videos are uploaded as private. You may change it after youtube processes the video.
