sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but is there any work being done to support the YouTube Upload Widget?

it is a fairly straightforward upload-and-preview method for users to get videos to youtube. what is nice (and fairly unique) is that it also allows a user to record a video from their webcam as well. for this reason, i think it would be great to allow something like user-generated "video comments" etc.

i am considering "video comments" on a drupal site i will be working on in 2013, and it seems like this module would be the place for this to live. any thoughts?

thanks,

This would be great as a submodule of Media: YouTube, or as it's own project that integrates with it. I personally won't be working on this functionality (plenty of backlogged issues to get through and then port to Vimeo first, when I have time), but patches and collaboration are very welcome.

I am adding this functionality to my media recorder sandbox project (currently applying for full project status) here: https://drupal.org/sandbox/kenianbei/1533270

It's working okay on my local machine, once I have all the kinks worked out I will commit it. Basically it checks if media_youtube is installed, and then offers to record using youtube as an alternate option. It then save the video using the youtube stream wrapper.
