Hello, does anybody have an idea how to delete a video from a youtube playlist?  I have the video id and I believe I actually have to capture the playlistItemID on the return call but the syntax I'm not sure how to construct. The video adding which I have working is below.

                <cfset jsondet={

                    "snippet" = {
                       "playlistId" = "#youtube_playlist_id#",
                      "description" = "#getPlaylistData.playlist_description#",
                       "resourceId" = {
                          "kind"    = "youtube##video",
                          "videoId" = "#getPlaylistData.video_id#"
                       },
                       "position"   = 0
                    }

                }>

Code is in coldfusion. Are PHP and JavaScript areas related at all?

Here the doc :
https://developers.google.com/youtube/2.0/developers_guide_protocol_updating_and_deleting_videos#Deleting_a_video

So once you've the auth token and Id f the video send a DELETE to your video URL :

<cfhttp url="http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/default/uploads/VIDEO_ID" method="delete" result="result">
        <cfhttpparam type="header" name="Authorization" value="GoogleLogin" auth=#variables.authtoken#">
        <cfhttpparam type="header" name="X-GData-Client" value="youtubecfc">
        <cfhttpparam type="header" name="X-GData-Key" value="key=#variables.devkey#">
</cfhttp>

In order of the comments...

1. I looked through the code examples (js, php, others) and none refer to json structure I need to verify deleting playlist items.

2. Thx, I'm using 3.0 api not 2.0.

3. That page I have read three times but its not clear how to formulate the structure to send to make the video go away.

Thx for the initial help
