YouTube Upload Functionality in the FWsim Application

If you decide to use YouTube upload, FWsim will a browser window allowing you to log into YouTube. FWsim will then remember your login email address in a local settings file - this is to make future uploads easier. However, FWsim will never read (or even receive) your password.

FWsim only uploads the video to your own YouTube account. It will never read any data from your YouTube account or share data with anyone. The YouTube login email is only stored locally.
