Hello everyone


Is there a way to get YouTube redirect video url

for example:
http://www.youtube.com/v/V3BsjxDZJM0

Above URL is used in YouTube embed-code. It is basically a server-side redirection that points to YouTube Player (.swf). Above redirects (server-side) to following URL:-

http://www.youtube.com/p.swf?video_id=V3BsjxDZJM0&eurl=&iurl=http%3A//sjc-
static12.sjc.youtube.com/vi/V3BsjxDZJM0/2.jpg&t=OEgsToPDskKzlTMEFZ1jOh40Xc3qOxzQ

Is it possible to get t parameter OEgsToPDskKzlTMEFZ1jOh40Xc3qOxzQ using Delphi?

Thanks

ZW

Use this function:

function GetUrl(Browser:String): String;
var
DdeClientConv:TDdeClientConv;
Temp :string;
URL :string;
Title :string;
begin
DdeClientConv:=TDdeClientConv.Create(Form1);
with DdeClientConv do
  begin
  // ConnectMode := ddeManual;

   if SetLink(Browser, 'WWW_GetWindowInfo' )then
         Temp:=RequestData('0xFFFFFFFF,sURL,sTitle');
    while Pos('"',Temp) > 0 do //(Single Double Single quotes)
         Delete(Temp,Pos('"',Temp),1); //Remove the quotes(Single Double Single quotes)

    URL:=Copy(Temp,1,Pos(',',Temp)-1); //Get URL
    Title:=Copy(Temp,Pos(',',Temp)+1,Length(Temp)); //Get title
    end;

DdeClientConv.Free;
Result := URL;
end;


... and then drop an editbox and a button and to button's click event paste this

 edit1.Text:=GetURL('IExplore');

if you are using firefox write:  edit1.Text:=GetURL('Firefox');

This will give you the whole link that address bar has and then you can split the link after the "="
 character and get that you want.
