View Full Version : Blinkyflashy.com Youtube request

01-07-2008, 04:34 PM
www.blinkyflashy.com has been registered and work continues to get it where it should be.

The main goal of blinkyflashy.com is to show others what can be done in the DIY Christmas lights realm.

That being said one purpose is to showcase everyone's display videos. To tackle this i am using a PHP Scraperr to query Youtube and display the results. I have the script setup to query DOIYC tag.. The reason for DOIYC versus DIYC is DIYC iresults have 4 videos and only 2 are displays and one of them was a joke i did directed at Charmz..

My request is for anyone with YT videos to please add the DOIYC tag so the site will find it and display iit

The current link is www.blinkyflashy.com/video - the backend is working but i still have some small issues to work out.

Thanks for your time

Charmz video sountrack seems to be some thing by the Soggy Bottom Boys.

I might not be a bad idea to put a like to doityourselfshristmas.com if they want to find out how to do display like this

Brian can you either close this thread but keep it a sticky or clean it up and close it.

The purpose was to get people to add the tag not constantly explain the link and that "some small issues" means that the page has small issues that are being dealt with.

not sure if you are aware, but Kc and I started a youtube account alone time ago to put videos up on, it is Vixenlights all the videos hosted there are from DIYC members, so if you can add it to your script, or just go there and steal them
