Utilize YouTube to Build your Own Video Portal

Posted by geeknews at 3:20 AM on March 12, 2008

YouTube has made a pretty huge announcement that is sure to have a number of programmers burning the midnight oil over the next couple of weeks.

YouTube will no longer be just a place to get video it is changing in that it will now be platform where you will essentially have your own YouTube Portal or YouTube videos integrated into software and web applications.

People will be able to login and upload videos directly from your own website and from your website you will be able to manipulate on your site how those submitted videos appear. (still figuring this out)

This is pretty remarkable and what this does is allows publishers like me to use the infrastructure of YouTube yet mash things up in a way that will benefit my site a great deal more.

I am still wrapping my brain around the different ways we will be able to use this. It’s to bad that someone would not do the same thing for Audio as well. CNET
