Google api refresh token method not working

We made a project through google api for directly uploading videos through amazon s3 to youtube channel using phpcode.
After few api usage token getting expired so we got the clue that there is a refresh token method to auto-refresh token.

When you first generate an oAuth access token via the API, you should also receive a refresh token in the response. This can be used to obtain a new access token when one has expired. You can read more about it in the Google API documentation. Google also provides a PHP library for authenticating with their services. This has support for the refresh token flow (see the code here).
