This documentation covers the actions that we support via YouTube.
Applications that support YouTube actions:
If a user connects their YouTube account or performs an action that requires authorisation, then they will be required to authenticate with the Gleam Competitions YouTube app.
Please note, these are the default permissions for any app on YouTube. Gleam will not do anything via the API without your explicit click or permission whilst entering a campaign.
Comment on a Video
Commenting on a YouTube video is a common way channels will ask their users to enter into a competition or sweepstakes. Gleam provides the ability to allow users to comment on a video whilst still being inside our widget.
Subscribe to a YouTube Channel
Gleam supports the ability to send users to your channel subscription page as an action type. Please note, we do not incentivize them for actually subscribing, so users are free to not subscribe if they wish.
What users will see after clicking the button:
Submit A YouTube Video
The YouTube Submit action allows you to ask users to submit any YouTube video as an entry into your contest. It's possible to link these videos to a Gallery (if you wanted to run a video submit competition) and let users view and vote on them.
Watch a Video on YouTube
Gleam supports the ability to watch a YouTube video as an action type.
In order to use this feature you will need the full YouTube video URL, here's an example:
Ensuring Users Watch The Entire Video
In order to make sure that a user watches all of the video before continuing you will need to add some additional parameters to hide the controls & YouTube branding.
To do this simply add the following to the Player parameters input:
