Set your credentials, peertube server URL.
You can get client_id and client_secret by logging in your peertube website and reaching the URL: https://domain.example/api/v1/oauth-clients/local You can set
OAUTHLIB_INSECURE_TRANSPORT to 1 if you do not use https (not recommended)
Youtube uses combination of oauth and API access to identify.
The first time you connect, prismedia will open your browser to as you to authenticate to
Youtube and allow the app to use your Youtube channel.
It is here you choose which channel you will upload to.
Once authenticated, the token is stored inside the file
Prismedia will try to use this file at each launch, and re-ask for authentication if it does not exist.
The default youtube_secret.json should allow you to upload some videos.
If you plan an larger usage, please consider creating your own youtube_secret file:
