I was playing around with YouTube and one of my friends asked me how we can get the YouTube API key for our channel for the use of some other work or application. It was quite an easy thing and I explained him the steps to get this and I thought to write an article with the steps and thought to share it with my friends.
I usually blog about Virtualization and cloud related things but I thought to write this article and share it in my blog as I’m using more Google products to my work. I’m a big fan of Google mail, Google Hangouts and obviously YouTube and some other Google Apps. So, this post is for the sharing purpose to all my readers.
