We are very excited to announce our latest built in data connector! As of today, you will now be able to use the YouTube Video Connector to pull in YouTube videos from your YouTube channel into your Knowledge Graph!
Install the YouTube Video Connector into your account in one of two ways: Head over to the “Apps” tab on your account, click “Directory” or head to the Connectors tab in your account.
Click on “YouTube Video Connector”
When you install it, you will be prompted to fill in the API key to use to make API calls to pull your YouTube videos into Yext and the channel ID of your YouTube channel you want to pull in videos from. Here’s how to do this!
If you don’t already have an API key to use, you can create one by following the steps here in the “Before you Start” section.
You can find your channel ID by following these steps.
Fill in the values for API Key and Channel ID and click Authorize.
After you’ve completed the installation flow, the connector will run automatically!
Looking for your Channel ID? If the above steps in the YouTube help article don’t work for you to find the Channel ID, you can find it in another way! Here’s some steps:
- Go to your YouTube Channel on YouTube.
- Click the “About” section.
- Right click anywhere on the page and choose “View Page Source.”
- Ctrl+f for “channelId” and the ID of the YouTube channel is the value next to that field.
