With our last beta release of Windows Live Writer we included a new feature to upload videos directly to YouTube from WLW. This should improve the workflow for many bloggers that create videos and publish them to their blog using YouTube as the distribution. However, 2 problems have cropped up that are might interrupt a blogger’s mojo.
We have contacted YouTube to work through this problem, and we expect that in the future this problem will be fixed.
Private Videos Are Private
In the current beta release we default videos to have a private permission when publishing them to YouTube. This means, you and your YouTube friends are the only people that can view the video. Readers of your blog may not be able to see the video if you publish using the default setting.
We plan to fix this in the future, as most bloggers would not intend to do this with their video. Until then you should change the permission to ‘Public’.
Once these problems are both fixed, Windows Live Writer and YouTube will make a lovely couple.
