Get YouTube videos in Flash using RSS Feeds

January 29, 2011 17:34

While working on a project recently the requirement was to pull streams of YouTube videos from a particular user account and based on a certain tag (keyword).

I tried working on YouTube Flash API without any success, after a few hours of goggling found out that YouTube provides RSS Feeds to pull data from a particular YouTube account also based on tags. This solved half the issue to get the data. Rest was to parse the XML data and display it in Flash.

I am not going into much detail of explaining the code as it’s quite simple, the only trick is to understand the rss feed format. In the example given you can change the variables _tag & _accname to get your feed.
