As we know, video files are always very large. It is a heavy burden to a small forum server. Is it possible to develop an API or plugin for uploading videos directly to the website owner’s youtube account? Then we can easily add youtube video address to discourse forum. Hope this method will relieve the burden of the server.
I’m not clear on how this feature would work. If the user wants to upload a video to youtube, why couldn’t they just go to youtube and upload it there?
The accout is a public account for discourse users. When user upload，the video will be stored on youtube by default.
We have no plans for this; the user would need to upload it directly to YouTube first.
