I would like to disable the upload features of shotwell. I found this
By using Shotwell, you grant the Shotwell Connect application permission to publish videos to your YouTube channel. Other than uploading videos, Shotwell does not insert, modify or remove any information from your YouTube account and channel.

I had a look at the source code for configuring shotwell. I found following two lines at:
option('publishers', type: 'string', value : 'facebook,flickr,picasa,piwigo,youtube,gallery3,tumblr', description: 'The list of publishing plugins to build')
option('enable-extra-plugins', type : 'boolean', value : 'true', description: 'Enable building and installation of extra publishing plugins')

Looks like a no brainer to deselect the feature for upload
and then some of the dependency for authentication 
could be spared if USE=extra_feature_upload is deselected.

... but, sorry I am not a programer ...

I don't think it's saying that it does it automatically.

I think it's a plugin that allows you to upload things to YouTube.
