YouTube API Discussed In Latest Office Hours

By: Zach Walton - June 8, 2012

It’s sometimes easy to forget that YouTube is part of the Google family of products. Good thing we have developer hangouts to remind us that the folks at Google are constantly improving the YouTube experience for developers who use the API.

The latest YouTube API Hangout featured the YouTube Product Management team talking about the new CORS support in the YouTube API. CORS, or Cross-Origin Resource Sharing, is a way for JavaScript developers to make arbitrary HTTP requests via a standard XMHLHttpRequest Interface.

The team also talks about what YouTube will be up to at the upcoming Google I/O conference. Here’s the topics on YouTube that you can expect to see during I/O:

YouTube Channels: Get with the Program!
Getting Direct Feedback from your YouTube Community
Mobile YouTube API Apps for Content Creators, Curators and Consumers
HTML5 at YouTube: Stories from the Front Line
YouTube API + Cloud Rendering = Happy Mobile Gamers
New YouTube Android Player Tools (Session + Codelab)
Master the Latest YouTube Data API (Codelab)
Webinar: YouTube for Your Business
Webinar: Using YouTube APIs and Ruby on Rails for Educational Apps

Check out the 46-minute Hangout below to get your first details on what will be discussed during these sessions. If you use the YouTube API or just like to develop software and apps using YouTube, you’ll want to check this one out:
