Digital Media SIG: Hands-on With the YouTube API



  • Topic: Hands-on With the YouTube API

    If your usage of the YouTube platform is limited to occasionally pasting embed codes in your blog, then you are missing out. YouTube today is much more than just a video hosting site. Using Google Data API's and YouTube Player API's, developers can harness the power of world’s most popular video destination to build new and innovative applications.

    In this session, we will provide an overview of the YouTube API's, including uploading, sharing, searching and customized video playback capabilities. Since the API's support multiple language bindings, we will discuss interesting examples in ActionScript, Java, JavaScript, C#, Objective-C, PHP, and Python.

    We will also drill into an example open source application - YouTube Direct - and discuss its App Engine-based design and implementation. We will also cover YouTube Direct's mobile clients for Android and the iPhone.

    We'll wrap up with examples and demos of application trends with a focus on curation, recommendations, sharing and several interesting applications in mobile, social, and gaming. Learn how to get the most out of YouTube, where 35 hours of video are uploaded each minute, and 2 billion videos are viewed every day.
