Youtube strategy for passport


$ npm install passport-youtube


Configure Strategy

The Youtube authentication strategy authenticates users using a youtube account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a app ID, app secret, and callback URL.

passport.use(new YoutubeStrategy({
    clientID: YOUTUBE_APP_ID,
    clientSecret: YOUTUBE_APP_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://localhost:3000/auth/youtube/callback"
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ userId: }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
