I've got the following method which should be grabbing a youTube video to display on my site but I'm getting a preg_match error. Any idea what might cause this error?
function youtube($keyword) {
	$url = "";
	$youtube = fopen($url, "r");
	if (preg_match('/<enclosure url=\"(.*)swf/s', $youtube, $y)) {
		$youtube = $y[1];
		$youtube = substr($y[1], 0, 36);
		$video = '';
		$video .= "\n".'<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" style="width:400px; height:325px;" data="'.$youtube.'">';
    	$video .= "\n".'<param name="movie" value="'.$youtube.'" />';
    	$video .= "\n".'</object>';
    	$video .= "\n";
    	print $video;
