WPTV to YT Publication Process

New content from WordPress.tv, which appears in its RSS feed, is automatically uploaded to YouTube via Zapier. This content includes videos at their original quality, titles, descriptions, links to the WPTV pages, and tags.

Videos are uploaded with visibility set to Private and periodically reviewed alongside other social media posts.

  • Video playlist, categoryCategory The 'category' taxonomy lets you group posts / content together that share a common bond. Categories are pre-defined and broad ranging., language, recording date, and location are all set based on the WPTV description and tags.
  • All videos are posted with the Creative Commons license.
  • When videos are published, and notifications sent, depends on the cadence of recent video content.
  • To avoid double-posting, do not upload directly to YT. Simply upload to WPTV and let the Zap push it to YT.

Driving visitors to WordPress.TV remains our priority, and there are no current plans for YouTube to replace WPTV. YouTube content is intended to grow our audience. When sharing videos to social media and elsewhere, please use the WPTV version. All YouTube uploads automatically include a line in their description linking to the original content on WPTV.
