I thought I'd let you all know that I created a JavaScript YouTube video ID extractor. It uses the built in regular expressions to get it.

You can see a proof of concept here.

The relevant function is below:

function youtubeIDextract(url)
[
var youtube_id;
youtube_id = url.replace(/^[^v]+v.(.[11]).*/,"$1");
return youtube_id;
]

I figured you'd want to incorporate this into ATS.


Note that it works with all of the following YouTube URLs:
youtube.com...
www.youtube.com...
youtube.com...

Also, if an ID is already there, it doesn't get mangled.

Please test it to see if there are any corner cases I might have missed.

I'm going to work on something similar for Google Video. I'll start another thread here once I'm finished.
