Hi all, a client asks if we can enable an auto-login to a YouTube account that is already subscribed to their channel via a query string in a URL (i.e. http://www.youtube.com/user/channel/u=username&p=password) ? This is because you have to subscribe to see all the videos and the link will be going to some awards judges.  Many thanks!

So you want to send a link so that they can all login to the same account - ir to login to their own accounts?

Either way, I'm fairly certain that this isn't possible.

Your alternatives are to use the YouTube API to build a video gallery, or why not just set each video to "Unlisted" (instead of private / public). That way - you can keep them hidden from any searches - but you can stil send out links to specific people?

Thanks mate, yes a set login that we're going to create that's already subscribed to the appropriate channel. We'll then send the awards judges a link that'll contain login details in the query string and will auto log them in and direct them to the appropriate channel.

I don't think changing the videos to unlisted or altering subscription settings is going to be possible and we haven't the time or budget to create a new channel using the API sadly... I thought it wasn't but just wanted to check, thanks.
