Youtube Utility

Gem Version Build Status Coverage Status

General purpose toolbox for working with Youtube.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'yt_util'

Usage

Usage notes will come in time. Feel free to look at the source code as it's rather short.

Methods available:

YtUtil::Scrape.raw_query(search, filters = "")
YtUtil::Scrape.query(search = nil, filters = "", &qry)
YtUtil::Scrape.raw_video_stats(video_code)
YtUtil::Scrape.video_stats(video_code = nil, &qry)
YtUtil::Scrape.raw_user_stats(username)
YtUtil::Scrape.user_stats(username = nil, &qry)
YtUtil::URL.generate(video_code, options = {})
YtUtil::URL.request(web_request)
YtUtil::GooglePlus.get_username(youtube_username)
YtUtil::Channel::URL.play_all(username)

NOTE

Any scraping results may become unavailable at anytime if Youtube chooses to change their page layout. This library is designed to return nil for any data it fails to scrape.

Contribute

This project will become more and more complete over time. Eventually the mapping of scraped data will be implemented intelligently instead of statically. This way when Youtube changes their site the code will compensate for the change. Feel free to contribute with this in mind.
