I am trying to figure out how to query a YouTube Channel via the API.

For Example I can query videos in the general pool but I want to only search inside a channel

I was hoping for a little more guidance than that.
I know where to find the API information I just could not find how to do this.

This is depend what kind of technology/programming language you use to connect YouTube API.
This is one of the component used in asp.net environment. Take a look on it.

Coldfusion but I do not think that should matter.

Here is an example of a query for the whole YouTube I just want to do the same thing but inside a channel.
