Handy Utility to Automatically Upload 3D Printing Timelapses from OctoPrint to YouTube #3DPrinting #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Checkout youtube-upload created by Arnau Sánchez Sala. A few folks from the OctoPrint community have stumbled on it and put it to work in conjunction with Octoprint to automatically capture and upload time-lapse videos to YouTube with a private/unlisted status. (So that they can be reviewed later.) Seems like a handy utility for lots of Pi Camera experimentation!
Using youtube-upload and the MovieDone event hook it is possible to automatically upload finished timelapses to YouTube.
You’ll need to install youtube-upload first. Assuming you are on a Pi, this can accomplished via….
After that, you’ll need to add the following event subscription to events > subscriptions in your config.yaml….
Substitute and with your YouTube username and password respectively. If you are using Google’s two factor authentication, you’ll need to create an application password to use here. If you want to make your movie unlisted, add –unlisted after the keywords, if you want to make it private, add –private….
