YouTube Account Legacy Set-Up

Configuring YouTube requires that you log out of any Google account on the machine you are trying to configure YouTube that is different than the YouTube. This includes your Apmetrix email. So, you should get the client’s YouTube account information out of Google Drive prior to beginning the configuration process.

  1. Navigate to https://code.google.com/apis/console/.
  2. Login with the client’s user name and password (from Google Drive).
  3. If this is the first time this account has logged into the API console, click the Create Project button.

            Note: If this is NOT the first time this account has logged into the API console, skip to step 10.
