    Upload to YouTube?

    The site I am working is already using this Ajax Uploader for image uploads. However I have been asked to develop a system where the users to be able to upload videos.  These videos will be stored and run from YouTube.
    For those that have not worked with the YouTube API before, in a netshell it works like this. After some authentication they pass you a URL and a Token for the upload. This URL is the URL to which the form 'action' must be set so that the video file is posted to YouTube and the Token is to be used as a hidden field on the form that YouTube reads to verify the upload. 
    My question is this.. Can the Ajax Uploader be used to POST to a server other than the site it is running on and is it possible to set a hidden value in the form that is the Ajax Uploader so that value is posted too?

    I am not familiar with the YouTube API .
    But I think it's not easy to implement that feature , because the AjaxUploader also need server implementation matched for all features.
