    You need to learn how to use the Youtube API: https://developers.google.com/youtube/

    thanks mike,

                         i followed the link and 1. created project on youtube.

    2.got api key.

    3.installed client library by opening the website in visual studio and install by nuget package manager successfully.( nuget does not update in webmatrix ).

    the dll filles created successfully in bin folder.

    4. copied the sample files from this link to app_code folder  :https://github.com/youtube/api-samples/tree/master/dotnet


    but how to call and use them in my upload.cshtml  as i am using webpages .most forums help for MVC .i have no experience of MVC. if it is not possible in webpages than can i shift project  to MVC and learn that?

    Hi Fiazahmed,

    You could consider using the Google APIs Client Library for JavaScript to upload video to YouTube.


    Best Regards,
