YouTube this week announced the launch of a new GitHub organization, YouTubeLabs, offering open-source scripts to partners and creators. These scripts aim to automate common tasks and simplify content management on YouTube.

Key features:

  • Variety of use cases: Bulk video editing, YouTube Analytics analysis, report downloading, content translation, and text-to-speech generation.
  • Accessible: Scripts rely on public APIs, require minimal configuration, and utilize user-friendly platforms like Colaboratory Notebooks and AppsScript.
  • Benefits: Reduced costs, increased efficiency, and expanded capabilities for partners and creators.

Availability:

  • Scripts are now available in the YouTubeLabs code-sharing repository.
  • Examples include:
    • Tutorial on using Colaboratory Notebooks
    • Creating Shorts from longform videos
    • Downloading Studio Content Manager reports
    • Translating captions and synthesizing text-to-speech

"By making our code available to the public, we are helping to empower partners and creators to do more with YouTube," wrote Federico Villa and Haley Schafer, Partner Technology Managers, YouTube Technology Services.
