How to get the duration and thumb url of a specific video?
Given the embed code a video, I'm trying to get its duration and thumb_url.
As described in
, this query (http://us.music.yahooapis.com/video/v1/item/36511355?appid=%5Byourapplicationidhere%5D) should return the XML definition for the video. BUT I cannot get it working properly. My questions are:
1) Where is the video id in an embed code?
2) Do I need to register for an app-id to make the query above?
3) Is there another (preferably easier) way of obtaining the duration and the thumb url?
