[ANN] Ruby YouTube Library 0.8.5 Released


#1

This library has been discussed here before, but I just realized that I
never did an official announcement to the group. It is basically a Ruby
wrapper around YouTube’s REST API, and currently implements all the
available methods. It also includes a convenience method to easily
embed a
video in a Rails view.

Install with ‘gem install youtube’.

Hi Shane,

I’ve just tried to install this & received this error.

C:\rails\test\trunk>gem install youtube
ERROR: While executing gem … (OpenURI::HTTPError)
404 Not Found

looks like a lot of fun though.

It looks like you are having trouble accessing the gem server or one of
its
mirrors. Give it another shot and see if it works, using:

sudo gem install youtube --include-dependencies
