Libsyn has added yet another social network to it’s OnPublish offering! Publish your content out to YouTube automatically when you generate a post at Libsyn. To get started, log into your Libsyn Dashboard and hit the button on your main menu. The next page will be a destination list, which shows a list of all the destinations available on your show.
Note: YouTube *only* accepts video. Audio files will not publish to YouTube as YouTube is a video only service.
You likely do not have YouTube in your listing yet, you will need to add it first. To do so, hit the Add New button.
A popup will appear giving you a list of destinations available to be added. You will want to hit the Add button for YouTube.
The destination will be added to your show and is ready for configuration. As with Facebook and Twitter, you will now need to log into YouTube and approve permissions for Libsyn to post to YouTube on your behalf.
Hitting the login button redirects you to YouTube. If you are not logged in yet, you will be asked to log in, and then Google will ask you to approve posting permissions:
Hitting Accept will redirect you back to Libsyn. The destination will be added and is now ready to be configured.
The destination name is the title given to the destination as seen in the destinations list in your Libsyn dashboard. It does not appear anywhere else, your listeners will never see it, so this can generally be ignored.
The system will show who you are logged in as. You can disconnect the YouTube connection by hitting the Log Out of Google button.
The important notice displayed here is telling you that once we release an episode out to YouTube, we can’t change it. So if you edit your episode in Libsyn in any way, those changes will not push out to the episode in YouTube, you will need to edit the episode in YouTube manually.
YouTube category to set for all published videos. If you do not choose a category, YouTube will assign each video the category that you used for your most recent previous video.
Include in YouTube Search Results
If you want your videos to be searchable inside YouTube, then set this to yes. Otherwise, set this to no.
Allow Embedding on Third Party Sites
When you post a video on YouTube, you have the option of allowing viewers to pull embed code that they can use to embed the player on their own, or other third party sites. If you want to allow this, set this to yes. Otherwise, choose no.
Copy Libsyn Keywords to YouTube
When you publish an episode, you can enter keywords for that episode that some services you publish to may be able to make use of. YouTube is one of those services, entering keywords into any episode that gets released to YouTube will register those keywords with YouTube which can help with your search ranking inside the social network.
You can also customize how you interact with your audience…
Here you can choose from a range of options including turning on rating, allowing or disallowing comments, and how you wish to moderate that interaction.
Once you have finished configuring the connection, be sure to hit . That’s it! Future episodes you post can now be released to YouTube. Have questions? Contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
