Unfortunatel yIve got to be onhiatus for a fewdays, see youguys friday!This script parses a textfile containg YouTube video IDnumbers. Itdownloads the FLV file (the YouTube video) for each ID inthe list.
Finding a YouTube video's ID is simple. Let's take thefollowing YouTubeURL as an example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[ OCjs3Se0XTc ]
The string of numbers and letters that follows "?v=" is thisvideo's ID.So, this video's ID is "OCjs3Se0XTc."It's important to note that, often, a YouTube URL willcontain extraparameters after the ID. For example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[ BrEYMP2rb3c ] &feature=featured&fmt=18
The is always the string following "?v=". In this and allother multi-parameter YouTube URLs, the ID ends before the firstampersand (&). So,this video's ID is "BrEYMP2rb3c."Once you have a video's ID, you're ready to create yourtextfile. Eachline of the file will contain a video ID, artist name and songtitle.Below is an example textfile:
W-V2Cm8CLJ4|Tony D'Aloia|Napoli tfsisahydZw|Antonella|Arrivera' L'Estate Am-HUOiRWXo|Antonella|La Mia Poesia
The video ID, artist name and song title are separated bythe pipecharacter (|), which can be entered using the "Shift" + "\"keycombination.
