Need some help on HTTP POST [Solved]

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone...

I've been writing code to upload my videos to YouTube automatically but

I don't understand what some of the header means...

Content-Length: <content_length> [solved]

Which part of the POST should I start counting?

The size that puts into $obj.Send()


<Binary File Data>

What happens if I want to send the data separately? How do I do that?

From Google Code :

POST /feeds/api/users/default/uploads HTTP/1.1
Host: uploads.gdata.youtube.com
Authorization: AuthSub token="<authentication_token>"
GData-Version: 2
X-GData-Key: key=<developer_key>
Slug: <video_filename>
Content-Type: multipart/related; boundary="<boundary_string>"
Content-Length: <content_length>
Connection: close

Content-Type: application/atom+xml; charset=UTF-8

Content-Type: <video_content_type>
Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary

<Binary File Data>

Here's my half-finished function

Func UploadVid($username, $token, $title, $des, $keywd, $filepath)
    $url = "http://uploads.gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/"& $username &"/uploads"
    $filename = StringSplit($filepath,'\')
    $filename = $filename[$filename[0]]
    $boundaryStr = '91C1C186'

    $data = "--"& $boundaryStr & @LF
    $data &="Content-Type: application/atom+xml; charset=UTF-8"& @LF
    $tmp_f = FileRead(@ScriptDir & '\upload.xml')
    $tmp_f = StringReplace($tmp_f, '---Title---',$title)
    $tmp_f = StringReplace($tmp_f, '---description---',$des)
    $tmp_f = StringReplace($tmp_f, '---KEYWORD---',$keywd)
    $data &= $tmp_f & @LF
    $data &= "--"& $boundaryStr & @LF
    $data &= "Content-Type: video/mpeg"& @LF
    $data &= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary"& @LF
    $hFile = FileOpen($filepath, 16)
    $data &= FileRead($hFile)
    $data &= "--"& $boundaryStr &"--"

    $obj = ObjCreate ("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1")
    $obj.Open("POST", $URL, false)
    $obj.SetRequestHeader("Authorization","GoogleLogin "& $token)
    $obj.SetRequestHeader("X-GData-Key","key=" & $dev_key)
    $obj.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type","multipart/related; boundary=" & $boundaryStr)

Can someone give me an example on DllCall() with this WinAPI function,please?

WinHttpOpen Function


Besides the return type, am I doing this right?



DllCall("Winhttp.dll","HINTERNET","WinHttpOpen", _
"wstr", $userAgent, "DWORD", $AccessType, _
"wstr", $ProxyName, "wstr", $ProxyBypass, "DWORD", $Flags)

Could some body please help me here?

I've made the code to upload the file but the server gives me "406 Not Acceptable", what to do?

I already made sure that my headers and my bodies are correct(including new lines).

Now I'm just not sure if my parameters are correct in the functions.

Please do help me, I just need this one more step to complete. :(:) :) ;):D

Edit: attachment remove (I'll open a new post about this Youtube Uploader when I'm finnish)

:( Problem found!!!

After doing some more search on Google... I managed to capture my package..

when I first saw my package,I was thinking....why "Accept:" is in my header. I haven't insert that into my script.

and now, I am sure it has something to do with my "406 - Not Acceptable" error!

:) :) ;) why is this happening :DB):) :)
