oauth2

Authentication usually is very important part in any application. You can always implement your own authentication system, but it will require a lot of work. That's why OAuth2 was created, to allow user to log in using one of the many accounts user already has.

In this video we'll create a simple web page with Google login using oauth2 Go package.

Hey Alex, I just gave you video upload permission if you're interested in the functionality. It's a new feature we're rolling out gradually. No pressure, but it's there if you want to use it. It will help your videos display more prominently throughout the site.
