Google API Service Account and nodejs
I want to be able to programmatically update a Youtube playlist using nodejs. In theory, this is possible using the Google API and jsonc.
As I want to do this without user interaction I have been battling with using a Google API Service Account on nodejs server.
I then stumbled across this message in the Google documentation for using Service Accounts with Google Drive:
Is this saying that what I want to achieve is not possible? I cannot use a Service Account on a NodeJS server to make changes to a playlist without user interaction?
Correct. Not yet supported. There have been security problems with service accounts. This may become possible in the future.
