YouTube script quits displaying "Tags" info [message #182498] Thu, 08 August 2013 18:30 Go to next message

I've had a script on my site for a few years now that pulls videos from
YouTube based on a keyword suffix I set up (BTW I found out that was
being abused by spammers so I had to set up an .htaccess file so that
domain could only be accessed from the main site, but that isn't
directly related to my question).

Several months ago, the "Tags" info next to the video thumbnail started
coming up blank, although the "Author," "Length," "Rating" and "Views"
above the "Tags" info are still working as normal.

Apparently YouTube has changed something that prevents the "Tags" from
displaying as it once did. Am I just SOL on this, or is there any way to
get the "Tags" info working again? The code on the "video.html" page
looks something like this:

<b>Tags:</b> {tags}

....but I couldn't seem to find the origin of {tags}.

I don't think it would be too difficult to remove this "Tags" code and
just forget about it if there's no way to fix this on my end.

Your PHP question is?

(In case you hadn't noticed - you posted to comp.lang.PHP).

I can't help but wonder if "super70s" having trouble playing youtube
videos might be mroldies.net moving from the '60s to the '70s, i.e. Rts.

Well well, here's an unpleasant surprise. And I wasn't even posting in
alt.www.webmaster.

Maybe someone else is actually interested in helping with a php-based
site and not being anal-retentive.

Haven't the foggiest what you're talking about, never heard of
mroldies.net (and BTW the videos play fine).

OK, I'll bite - what php code are you using, what output does it
generate, what output do you expect it to generate?

As Jerry said, this is a php group, but your original post seems to
contain one line of html thus:

<b>Tags:</b> {tags}

and nothing that gives any hint as to what the php issue is that you're
posting to this php group about, except the comment that you're using a
script to interface with youtube.

If your issue relates to the youtube api that you're using, the best
place to ask is the appropriate youtube api support forum. We don't do
youtube api here, we do php.

If someone else wrote the script that you're using to interface with
youtube and it no longer works, it's probably best to go back to the
person who wrote the script and see if they have an update, or
alternatively, find the current api details (this sounds like an api
change may be stuffing the script) and either update the script yourself,
or write a new interface to the api.

In either case, that's not something that I'd expect many people here to
know about.

What I do know is that the expression:

<b>Tags:</b> {tags}

is not something I'd expect to be recognised or processed in any way at
all by a php parser. Either what you wrote is not what you have, or it's
not a php issue. Your very woolly description of the problem provides
little help in analysing the situation either.

Somebody might be interested in helping you if you knew the difference
between PHP and HTML and posted in the right newsgroup. But being so
anal retentive, you think you can post any question in any newsgroup, on
topic or not, and expect the whole world to jump to answer you.

Sort of an inside joke around here and funny as hell but not at your
expense.

Stick around for a bit and I am sure in a few weeks you will have an
'ahhhhh' moment.

You might want to look at the <video> HTML tag to screen your downloaded movie,
as for PHP there's probably code out there which morphs videos to a browser, as
ImageMagick does to images. Then, learn some Python for e.g. youtube-dl, a
program which fetches your kind of videos.

As Denis said 4 months ago - this is not a PHP problem and this is not
the appropriate newsgroup.

As for morphing videos to a browser - a video is not an image!
