Anticipating Errors :  "Any program that accepts data from a user must include code to validate that data before sending it to the data store. You cannot rely on the data store, ...., or even your programming language to notify you of problems. You must check every byte entered by your users, making sure that data is the correct type for its field and that required fields are not empty."

if you looked at the au3 file you would see how it works and it will be easy for you to create the functions you need. You also need to look at this:


Obviously what you need has not been coded yet so you will need to build it. The first link and the above link will be more than enough for you to make it with little effort on your part.

very basic, but gives a starting  point for self research.

note the documents links below.  google apikeys are required.

YouTube  made a major change in it's API a couple years back, version3.

you need server and Browser keys, so no direct access is allowed.

you must register thru YouTube to get the keys, and they are considered confidential.


#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
$video_id = 'A_QfO7g1YsI';    Parliament - Night of The Thumpasorus Peoples
$apikey =  'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' ;  // browser key for desktop apps.
;$apikey = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' ;  // server key for web apps.
$ytquery = 'https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/videos' & '?id=' & $video_id & '&key=' & $apikey ;
$ytquery = $ytquery & '&part=snippet,contentDetails,status,player';
$ytquery = $ytquery & '&fields=items(id,snippet(title),status(uploadStatus,rejectionReason,embeddable)';
$ytquery = $ytquery & ',contentDetails(duration,regionRestriction)';
$ytquery = $ytquery & ',player(embedHtml))';
$ytdata = InetRead($ytquery,1);
$ytjson = BinaryToString($ytdata);
;MsgBox($MB_OK, $video_id, $ytjson)
ConsoleWrite( @CRLF &  $ytjson & @CRLF)
