Vacation Over… Back in the Flex World

Just came back from a long vacation. Was in Delhi for about a month and then took a 10 day vacation to the Himalayas (to Leh Ladakh). The Trip was really amazing.

Now back to reality and back in the Flex World !!

Hello WordPress

March 28, 2007

I have finally moved all my posts from my blogspot address to the wordpress one. It was relatively easy, thanks to the import facility in wordpress, but still tweaks had to be made. I’m looking forward to this 🙂

Abrupt YouTube security policy change

January 16, 2007

Due to abrupt youTube security policy change, my youTube App doesnt work anymore 😦

Possibly due to an exploit, youTube abruptly changed their crossdomain.xml file to only allow access from the domain. As a result, YouTube developer API calls no longer work if the SWF exists in a domain. You can read more on this on Joe’s Blog here.

Woe is me… I think i’ll try to port my app to the new BrightCove API that i came across today. Lets wait and watch 🙂

It seems Flickr did it too… seems like Death of open crossdomain.xmls. Read the post by Renaun Erickson

I’m Addicted to You Tube & its API

July 8, 2006

You Tube is a fantastic site… It has captivated my imagination for sometime now, that I was glued to it. A novel idea of uploading videos and then making it freely “searchable” or blog-appendable for anyone. You can see a whole lot of You Tube videos in my Media Blog… But one thing about youtube I did not like was its searchability and the ease of use to find a video that you are looking for (by user, by tag…etc).

So, I have been wanting to write a search tool for youTube for a long time now. And then i chanced on the youTube API. Its a set of very simple REST (click here to know about REST) calls that would return me useful search info like search by tags, username… etc in a simple, ready to use XML Format!!

I could now use this data in my Flex Application & write a search tool… So I was well on my way to write a youTube Search tool… That in the next post..

Before i sign off, here’s a video I found on youTube that defines my state of affairs with youTube in the past few days.
