What is the best way for member to upload and present youtube videos
i am building a CMS member's only site (each member will have their own profile page). i now want to enable members to upload videos to the site so that i can then imbed the videos on their profile page.
( i intend to store the videos on "my own youtube channel" and then link that video to the individual members profile page.
Can somebody please advise me of how i can go about doing this. i.e what software/programme to use that will enable members to upload the vidoes and is there a way for me to automatically transfer the videos to my youtube channel or must this be done manually.
The site is programmed in PHP. so I would appriciate any PHP guys out there to give me some advice on the best way to go around this.

This is a very bad idea if you even got it to work
All I would have to do I find some nice hard core porn videos and have them uploaded and pretty soon YouTube will notice and ban your account
There are ways of doing this but you will need full control over the server and a program like YouTube uploader, when the video is uploaded to your server have it immediately uploaded to your channel using that program then once it's uploaded have it deleted to save server space

At one time YouTube had an API that would allow you to upload videos. I would guess that they still have it.
