YouTube upload and playlist creation

In addition to storing media within theBox, theBox allows staff to:

  1. Upload/remove single videos to UNSW's eLearning and Community Youtube channels
  2. Create and upload (and remove) a Youtube playlist of related videos to UNSW's eLearning and Community Youtube channels

Uploading to and taking down from the UNSW Youtube channel(s) from theBox can take some time, the process is typically not instant.

Note: The UNSW Community playlist has previously been known as the AboutUNSW playlist.
