I have a list of several YouTube URLs that I would like to add programmatically to a YouTube playlist (in my channel). (Actually, I have several target playlists in mind, each getting a subset of the URLs in my list.)
Is there a way I can add these programmatically (e.g. with Python or Perl, etc.)?
imagine realize that there's a way to do this using the YouTube API, but my (very limited) understanding of this approach is that it would require me to create and register (with Google) a web app, and it would be this web app that would make API calls. If this picture is correct, it looks like a lot of hassle for what I want to do.)
Edit: By way of clarification:
I am familiar with the info given Adding a video to a playlist, but, as I explained, I am hoping to find some other way to do this.
I have no problem with registering myself to get a developer key, nor I have any problem with including a developer key with every request; but, in principle, including a developer key in one's requests does not require a webapp (a simple script, or even a command-line one-liner, is perfectly adequate, technically speaking, to this task); therefore, the webapp business seems to me an extraneous artifact of Google's registration procedure, one that greatly complicates what would otherwise be a very simple programming task.
