sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but is there any work being done to support the YouTube Upload Widget?

it is a fairly straightforward upload-and-preview method for users to get videos to youtube. what is nice (and fairly unique) is that it also allows a user to record a video from their webcam as well. for this reason, i think it would be great to allow something like user-generated "video comments" etc.

i am considering "video comments" on a drupal site i will be working on in 2013, and it seems like this module would be the place for this to live. any thoughts?

This would be great as a submodule of Media: YouTube, or as it's own project that integrates with it. I personally won't be working on this functionality (plenty of backlogged issues to get through and then port to Vimeo first, when I have time), but patches and collaboration are very welcome.

I am adding this functionality to my media recorder sandbox project (currently applying for full project status) here:

It's working okay on my local machine, once I have all the kinks worked out I will commit it. Basically it checks if media_youtube is installed, and then offers to record using youtube as an alternate option. It then save the video using the youtube stream wrapper.

I've removed this functionality from the media_recorder module. If I was to add it to media_youtube as a patch, where would the best place to put it be? Under the media browser Youtube tab as a fieldset? Something else?

I would love to see this implementation, could you post your patch here kenianbei?

I don't have a patch yet, still waiting for feedback on how best to implement. I don't have a lot of time so I'm hoping to get some help with the UI aspect. The coding is pretty easy since I had an implementation in code already (in the media_recorder project).
