Youtube upload script

Thanks to an article on the german website "Linux und ich" , I decided to make my own upload script. I makes heavy usage of the source code provide youtube-upload.py, a python script. It also uses the split-tool provided in the examples directory!

Legal notice

This script is given AS IS. I am not responsible for loss of data (which is really not what I want and not likely to happen). But furthermore I am not responsible, if your google data is hacked using an insecure network or given away your data otherwise or using the third party software youtube-upload used by this script.

Prerequisites

  • have an ogv video (gtkRecordMyDesktop), e.g myvideo_name.ogv
  • you like to convert and upload it to Youtube using Nautilus (or in batch mode in bash)
  • provide your Youtube account data (which are the same like for google) in the code of the script
  • login into youtube in your browser (this will open you video page, when the script finished)
  • prepare a file named e.g. myvideo_name.meta - if you like - in the same directory as the video with the following content:
TITLE="Your title here"
DESCRIPTION="Description here"
# Valid categories: Tech Education Animals People Travel Entertainment Howto Sports Autos Music News Games Nonprofit Comedy Film
CATEGORY="Category here"
KEYWORDS="Keywords (colon separated here)"

It will be used for uploading the file. If you don't have such a file, a new one will be created when you enter your data (you will be asked)

  • have split_video_for_youtube.sh in your path and youtube_upload.py somewhere (get it here: youtube-uploade at google code )
  • have a wrapperfile called youtube-upload in your path:
#!/bin/bash
python /wherever/is/youtube_upload.py "${@}"

in your path, and made them executable (chmod +x filename)!!!

  • have mencoder installed

This is a nautilus script, can be turned into normal script

Put the given script into

~/gnome2/nautilus-scripts

and make it executable.

chmod +x scriptname

Beeing a nautilus script it can be easily turned into shell script changing the line

cd "$NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI"

into

cd "$(pwd)"

This might be also handy for troubleshooting!!!

If you like to like to make everything without interaction, you can alter the last part of the script beginning with:

if [ -f ${MYBASENAME}.part*.${MYCONVTYPE} ]
then
# Converted video exists

delete it until the end and substitude it with:

[ -f ${MYBASENAME}.meta ] || set_youtube_metadata
split_it
upload_it

This way the script will run through without asking you.

So here we go

#!/bin/bash

# Convert any given Video to a youtube compatible format ... and upload it
# Uses https://code.google.com/p/youtube-upload/ to upload to youtube

Batch-convert videos with avidemux

Avidemux is a very handy tool. Sometimes you have a lot of files of the same type laying around and you like to apply all the same filters to them. I use it to convert the videos form my camera (mov) into a compatible format for e.g. Openshot (avi).

The solution is very simple. There is a tool called avidemux_cli (command line interface). It can use the project-files created with the Avidemux graphical user interface. Simply save your settings with Avidemux-GUI to a file with the ending ".proj" alongside with your videos and run the follwoing script.

Special version for a certain project

There are only some things to edit:

  • a folder name where to save the converted files
  • the name of the video filetype to be converted (here mp4)
  • the name of the output video, this MUST match the type given in avidemux
  • the exact name of the avidemuxproject-file

For the script to run you need to install avidemux-cli and avidemux:

sudo apt-get install avidemux-cli avidemux
#!/bin/bash
FOLDER="Converted"
IN_TYPE="mp4"
OUT_TYPE="avi"
PROJECT="convert_to_mjpeg.proj"

General purpose version

I also created a version for batch processing and general purpose:
