We want to create a video platform for gaming videos. The featured videos are sourced directly from various youtube channels, defined in the backend section of the platform.
Unlike an RSS feed, each video shall be fully embedded in an article / post, but shall not be hosted by us.
So what the site needs to be able to do is automatically pull and embed videos into automatically generated CMS articles/posts
Key website features
Embedding of new videos of a specified youtube channel upon release in automatically generated new CMS articles/posts
Importing history already existing videos from specified channels
smart Categories that integrate all videos with a certain key word in the title
adding single videos from channels that aren’t registered in the backend
flexibility to register news channel over the course of time through the backend which then automatically import all existing videos (history) and keep importing new videos when released
Site needs to constantly monitor specified channel for newly published videos
import key stats like total channel views and subscribers
Further requirements regarding the content pulled:
Import title, description and view count
View count has to updated every permanently
A channel page and single video page
For each channel not only the videos have to be imported and regularly be pulled when a new one is added but also the shows and playlists of the channel need to be imported.
