Notes N/A

Dynamic Media - YouTube Cloud Service configuration

Previous location /etc/cloudservices/youtube
New locations /libs/settings/dam/dm/youtube
Restructuring guidance

1. Unpublish all videos from YouTube
2. Create the YouTube Configuration using the new TouchUI (from /conf) including copying all the Channels from the old location
3. Publish all videos back to YouTube.

This workflow results in new YouTube URLs. If you do not unpublish before creating a TouchUI YouTube config, then you have multiple YouTube URLs listed under Properties because the recreated Channels are published again, if given the chance. This functionality means you have useless URLs listed under Properties.
