A few tips

If you’re having trouble connecting to your YouTube channel, try these strategies to help you connect your data:

  • Select a different, existing token from the drop-down menu. Make sure it's connected to your YouTube channel.
  • Add a new token by clicking + Connect new account...  and selecting a different YouTube channel that's associated with your account.
  • Go to your YouTube account and make sure that your channel has videos on it.

Managing your YouTube connection

By default, your connection name looks like this: yourname@Google <date and time created>. You can modify the default connection name when you create a new connection or from your list of connections, accessed by clicking your Account Name (located at the bottom of the left navigation sidebar) and selecting Account > Connected Accounts or by clicking the button in the left navigation sidebar and selecting Connections.

You can use the same account connection every time you connect to YouTube. If you have trouble accessing an existing connection, your OAuth token may have expired. If that happens to you, check out these troubleshooting tips.
