This package can retrieve details about videos using Youtube API.

It provides a service provider class that allows access to your Laravel application to several functions that send HTTP requests to Youtube Data API v3.

Currently, it can:

- Get the details about a specific video or multiple videos

- Get a list of videos related to another video

- Get the comment threads about a video

- Get a list of popular videos in a country

- Search videos by keyword

- Search or list videos of a channel

- Get the details of the channel, like the name and the ID

- Get the details of a playlist, like the videos, ID, and activities

- Parse the URL of the video page to extract the video ID

- Retrieve lists of videos paginated with a limited number of videos per page

Publish config settings:

Set your Youtube API key in the file:

Or in the .env file

YOUTUBE_API_KEY = KEY

Or you can set the key programmatically at run time :

Youtube::setApiKey('KEY');

Usage

// use KielD01\Youtube\Facades\Youtube;


// Return an STD PHP object
$video = Youtube::getVideoInfo('rie-hPVJ7Sw');

// Get multiple videos info from an array
$videoList = Youtube::getVideoInfo(['rie-hPVJ7Sw','iKHTawgyKWQ']);

// Get multiple videos related to a video
$relatedVideos = Youtube::getRelatedVideos('iKHTawgyKWQ');

// Get comment threads by videoId
$commentThreads = Youtube::getCommentThreadsByVideoId('zwiUB_Lh3iA');

// Get popular videos in a country, return an array of PHP objects
$videoList = Youtube::getPopularVideos('us');

// Search playlists, channels and videos. return an array of PHP objects
$results = Youtube::search('Android');

// Only search videos, return an array of PHP objects
$videoList = Youtube::searchVideos('Android');

// Search only videos in a given channel, return an array of PHP objects
$videoList = Youtube::searchChannelVideos('keyword', 'UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg', 40);

// List videos in a given channel, return an array of PHP objects
$videoList = Youtube::listChannelVideos('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg', 40);

$results = Youtube::searchAdvanced([ /params/ ]);

// Get channel data by channel name, return an STD PHP object
$channel = Youtube::getChannelByName('xdadevelopers');

// Get channel data by channel ID, return an STD PHP object
$channel = Youtube::getChannelById('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg');

// Get playlist by ID, return an STD PHP object
$playlist = Youtube::getPlaylistById('PL590L5WQmH8fJ54F369BLDSqIwcs-TCfs');

// Get playlists by multiple ID's, return an array of STD PHP objects
$playlists = Youtube::getPlaylistById(['PL590L5WQmH8fJ54F369BLDSqIwcs-TCfs', 'PL590L5WQmH8cUsRyHkk1cPGxW0j5kmhm0']);

// Get playlist by channel ID, return an array of PHP objects
$playlists = Youtube::getPlaylistsByChannelId('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg');

// Get items in a playlist by playlist ID, return an array of PHP objects
$playlistItems = Youtube::getPlaylistItemsByPlaylistId('PL590L5WQmH8fJ54F369BLDSqIwcs-TCfs');

// Get channel activities by channel ID, return an array of PHP objects
$activities = Youtube::getActivitiesByChannelId('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg');

// Retrieve video ID from original YouTube URL
$videoId = Youtube::parseVidFromURL('https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moSFlvxnbgk');
// result: moSFlvxnbgk

Basic Search Pagination

// Set default parameters
$params = [
    'q'             => 'Android',
    'type'          => 'video',
    'part'          => 'id, snippet',
    'maxResults'    => 50
];

// Make intial call. with second argument to reveal page info such as page tokens
$search = Youtube::searchAdvanced($params, true);

// Check if we have a pageToken
if (isset($search['info']['nextPageToken'])) {
    $params['pageToken'] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];
}

// Make another call and repeat
$search = Youtube::searchAdvanced($params, true);

// Add results key with info parameter set
print_r($search['results']);

/Alternative approach with new built-in paginateResults function/

// Same params as before
$params = [
    'q'             => 'Android',
    'type'          => 'video',
    'part'          => 'id, snippet',
    'maxResults'    => 50
];

// An array to store page tokens so we can go back and forth
$pageTokens = [];

// Make inital search
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, null);

// Store token
$pageTokens[] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];

// Go to next page in result
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, $pageTokens[0]);

// Store token
$pageTokens[] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];

// Go to next page in result
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, $pageTokens[1]);

// Store token
$pageTokens[] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];

// Go back a page
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, $pageTokens[0]);

// Add results key with info parameter set
print_r($search['results']);

The pagination above is quite basic. Depending on what you are trying to achieve you may want to create a recursive function that traverses the results.

Run Unit Test

If you have PHPUnit installed in your environment, run:

$ phpunit

If you don't have PHPUnit installed, you can run the following:

$ composer update
$ ./vendor/bin/phpunit

Format of returned data

The returned JSON is decoded as PHP objects (not Array). Please read the "Reference" section of the Official API doc.
