I want students to be able to search YouTube for educational videos in their home language. For example, if a Dutch student wants to search for a Dutch video on Napoleon, a dutch result will probably not end up in the top 5 search results. Is their a way around this? I see that it is not possible to filter for language or region on Youtube and the YouTube V3 APIs also don't allow for this either (This is not an API question) but maybe some of you have come up with creative work-arounds?


Here's a third party site with meta tag search try this out

  • Thanks for pointing me to this. I think it uses the Youtube V2 API to filter for language, the V3 API doesn't have this. I'll see how I can use this. – nicholaschris May 21 '13 at 16:29

    I know this was 6 years ago, but sadly, that link is now dead. – Lionside Mar 27 '19 at 1:06
