  1. Add YouTube inbox and channel comments support

    As a brand I am required to look after a huge range of social networks and Hootsuite does that nicely. Building upon that it would be great to be able to see and reply to my Youtube inbox, channel comments, and video comments, all through Hootsuite

          Thanks for the awesome feedback, everyone. We will certainly keep this request in mind as we continue to extend our Analytics tools.

        • Ability to manage multiple YouTube Channels for my business

          My business actually has a few different channels. It'd be nice if this app allowed me to manage/view results from several of them at the same time.

            • Show the number for video viewed.

              It shows comments and favorites and you can sort searches by number of views but you are not displaying the number of views anywhere (that I can see). It would be nice to see that information.

              • Progress bar for uploads

                At the moment, there isn't a fool-proof way to tell if your video is being uploaded to Youtube using the app. A progress bar could help to ascertain the amount of time it will take. Some guidelines/instructions need to be provided for example to explain whether you can navigate to other tabs whilst a video is being uploaded, etc.

                • Sort YouTube Subscriptions into Groups

                  I have been looking for a solution to YouTube's cluttered subscription feed. I have suggested this directly to YouTube in the past but with no change thus far. What I saw HootSuite had a YouTube app I was hoping for virtual group but alas that doesn't seem to be the case.

                  So I suggest that HootSuite add a virtual grouping system based on our YouTube subscriptions. Allow these groups to be displayed as a stream using the YouTube app.

                  • Need Partner options enabled for uploads

                    I think YouTube partners will be your primary audience for this powertool, so you need to have YouTube's partner upload options in your upload tab. Partners have to fill out a copyright disclaimer for each upload, and need to be able enable instream video monetization as well. Without this, the upload facility is useless, because we would need to log in to YouTube to do all this stuff in addition.

                    • Add "Unlisted" to choice of Privacy Settings

                      Under privacy, you are missing the "unlisted" option which we use frequently. It would be great if you could add this asap -- not sure why it wouldn't be there already with public and private.

                      • Add youtube Company Pages

                        I know it's possible to add a Youtube account already however I couldn't find the option to add a "YouTube Company page" that is managed by my YouTube account.

                        • YouTube upload schedule

                          It seems that now we can upload videos to YouTube, however we can't schedule uploads. It would be AWESOME if possible to upload videos to Youtube, DailyMotion, Vimeo and other great video hosting sites.

                          • allow youtube playlists to be added on as streams too.

                            Making playlists (such as "Favorites" and "Watch Later") available as streams would be much more convenient and helpful.

                            • More characters in the Tags Field

                              The tags field only allows for about 120 characters, which is miniscule compared to the tags field within YouTube itself.

                                • mechanism for searches of compound key phrases, eg "term1 term2"

                                  At present, searches for compound keyphrases seem to get dropped from the keywords input box, when using quote marks to set up a persistent stream based on a search phrase. No alternative to quotes is apparent.

                                  • Add option to choose between you tube accounts within the same google ID.

                                    I have a sub account setup for You Tube within one google+ ID and the app automatically connects to the main account with no option to switch to the other one. This makes the app useless for me.

                                      Hi Ryan!
                                      Check out the YouTube Pro app! You might find what you’re looking for there.

                                    • Track YouTube Video Views

                                      It would be great to see the number of views our YouTube videos have had.

                                      • add the feature to unlist videos on the YouTube App

                                        Instead of just public or private settings, add the other option YouTube offers to unlist your videos.
