How to get uploaded details from a YouTube Channel

Postby casapaska » Sat May 11, 2013 6:16 am

Maybe somebody can come up with an easier way to do this, but this is a short tutorial showing how I got the details for the UFOTV channel on Youtube.

1. Get the user name for the channel, in my case it was UFOTVstudios

2. Go to the "Youtube data API"
https://gdata.youtube.com/demo/index.html

3. Select Video Feeds > Uploads Query

4. Scroll down and enter the channel name;

5. Enter the search criteria; A. Number of records (max is 50) B. Start record (get to this later) C. Ordering by Published date;
Image

6. A url will appear at the bottom giving the search criteria for the API, cut and paste this into any RSS reader. Press the SUBMIT button to get a live XML print out on the page.

7. In your RSS feeder, if you add a feed with the previous URL, you now get a nice listing of all the uploads chronologically according to Youtube, with show notes too!!

8. Unfortunately a limitation of the Youtube API seems to be 50 queries at one time, so you might have to add several feeds to get the initial info like I did.

All you do here is change the Results starts with field to 50, 10, 150, 200, 250 etc.
Image

It produces an appender url like follows with a start-index=XX number. Once you get the initial info added you can delete the other feeds as the first one will hold the most recent 50 episodes.

As I mentioned, there is probably an easier way to do this, but this works for me.
