O.P. [?] Playing with the Google Data (YouTube) API...
Could anyone help me with this? I seem to be getting "Expected ';'" errors..
JScript code:
function YouTube_Search(Keyword,sIndex,Length,option){
    var result={keyword:Keyword,VideoInfo:[],start:sIndex,end:0,total:-1};
    result.start=(((result.start-1)/10)*20)+1;
    var api=eval(GetContents("http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?q="+Keyword+"&alt=json"));    result.total=parseInt(api.openSearch$totalResults.$t);
    while(1){
        for(i in api.entry)result.VideoInfo.push({URL:"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="+api.entry[i].id.$t.substr(api.entry[i].id.$t.lastIndexOf("/")+1),ThumbnailURL:api.entry[i].media$thumbnail[0].url,Title:api.entry[i].media$title.$t,Description:api.entry[i].media$description.$t,ViewCount:parseInt(api.entry[i].yt$statistics.viewCount),LengthSeconds:parseInt(api.entry[i].yt$duration.seconds),SaveFilename:ToFilename(api.entry[i].media$title.$t),attr:7
});
        if(result.start+(result.VideoInfo.length-1)==result.total)break;
        }
    result.VideoInfo.length?result.end=result.start+(result.VideoInfo.length-1):result.total=0;
    if(result.VideoInfo.length!=20&&result.start!=1)result.total=result.end;
    return result;
}

underlined: Expected ";" error

GetContents is a XMLHTTP GET request and returns the responseText.

Basically i'm just searching youtube =P

oh and sorry for ruining the layout.

well seeing as your doing and eval, wouldnt you need a ; inside the eval'ed code? as it has to comply with the js standards? =\

I'm just guessing here, but maybe you should first store the GetContents result in a variable and check if it was successful to avoid unwanted results. When I looked at the resulting JSON, it looks like it's missing a semi-colon at the end, so you might want to add that.

Are you sure that GetContents returns the response properly? In order to get that working, it has to be done synchronously (xmlHttp.async = false) otherwise you can't retrieve the response.

JScript code:
function GetContents(url){
var xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
xmlhttp.open("GET",url,0);
xmlhttp.send();
return xmlhttp.responseText;
}


it works perfectly.

JScript code:
    var api=eval(GetContents("http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?q="+Keyword+"&alt=json"));


JScript code:
var results = eval( '(' + xmlhttp.responseText + ')' );
 
Debug.Trace(results.feed["openSearch$totalResults"]["$t"]);
// Debug.Trace(results.feed.entry[0]["media$group"]["media$title"]["$t"]);
