In order to analyse the quality of the tags VideoTag is generating, i want to compare them to the existing tags for the videos in YouTube. So i set about the arduous task of collecting all these tags and entering them into my database. I checked the YouTube rss feed and no example for favourites, so i googled it and found sites that use the youTube API to let you rss feed users favourites, but you only get the 10 off the first page, which is useless for my 60 odd videos. So i resorted grudgingly to manually copying and pasting off each video. Then i had the bright idea of seeing if i could rss feed my playlist. After a quick google search i found this site:
I was kicking myself for not thinking of this sooner, it saved me lots of time, especially when after entering all the YouTube tags for my 63 videos i got this error “possible deep recursion attack” and lost them all!!
So my annoyance at not having found it earlier, changed to being thankful i’d found it at all so re entering the 63 sets of tags wouldn’t take quite so long. grrr i hate it when quick jobs to ease you into your working day take up half of it unexpectedly.
