YouTube will kill their API V.2 in favour of V.3. Why is that important? Now you are obliged to identify yourself in order to use it. That means that users of mps-youtube, etc, will have to enter an account in order to continue to use it.
We are going deeper and deeper inside the botnet...
That's nice, and probably it's a solution that is very hard to censor.
But this year Google already killed the XMPP API to Google Talk and now this... The direction they are going is getting more and more clear.
Apparently you may or may not soon have to log in in order to use Youtube on a tablet, and it may or may not stop functioning completely on hardware more than 3 years old.
I used to use an RSS reader instead of having a youtube account.
You can still get a feed for uploads, via:https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=$1
You can get a users ID, via:wget -qO - "http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/$1/uploads" | grep channel | cut -d \" -f 2 | uniq -d
Just in the process of migrating now...
>Using youtube in the first place
Holy shit why, you can always found any worthy video in other places at source quality and not shitty youtube bitrate and encoding.
>In b4 people who listen music on youtube
FUCK YOU YOUTUBE. FUCKING GOOGLE JEWS. IM NOT GONNA USE YOUR SHITTY APP.
>Google offers features
>Features are used to draw people in
>Features are then removed
Don't be evil :^)
That's great to hear. I wonder how difficult it is to parse html and find out where the video is and like things. Google probably makes it difficult by obfuscating their html.
It's a shame that there are so many useful APIs, but tools are needing to parse html because of the asinine restrictions on them.
And you wonder why I have severed as many ties to fucking Google as I possibly can. I hate even posting on 4chan because of their Captcha shit, and this might be the last straw that makes me not even use the workaround offered with the extension to allow more indirect use of the captcha.
Fuck Google and anyone still using it is an idiot.
