    Hello!

    I've came up with an idea to make some tools, which would:

    1. Harvest links to YT videos;
    2. Download these videos;
    3. Add watermarks;
    4. Reupload videos.

    All would be as automatic as possible (I want to reupload hundreds of videos every day).

    I've written very simple script to harvest links, I also have program to download videos (not very automatic, but working) - I'll find better one in the future.

    But the problem is watermarking. I have a VPS with Windows Server 2008 (also the other one, with Debian). I tried to use Watermark Master on it, but it doesn't work (always brings an error). I guess this is because I have wrong codecs, but anyway I can't solve this problem. How do you watermark videos on your servers?

    Finally, I want to upload these videos using YT API (and generate titles, descriptions, tags, etc.).


    And here's my second (and last) question. Is my idea generally worthwhile?

    There is a reason why yt software developers dont use YT api.

    You should avoid using YT api instead use the normal way of uploding. However, if you find a way to automate the watermark shoot me a pm am down to collaborate. What kind of accounts are you using at the moment,do you create them yourself or buy them. That can play a big roll in your outcome.

    Now I create them myself, but I'm not sure how I will do this in the future. I thought about simple script based on service like DeCaptcher.

    Maybe I'll write my own program to do that.
