I am using the yahoo api to pull and play music videos. I can only pull a fraction of the music videos. The others one come in, but cannot play. The videos that cannot play do not have a video id, but it has a url attribute like " http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/--2168226". In the event that there is no video id, my program takes the url and extracts the ending number and uses it as the id. The video will still not play, even if I manually put in the video id to see if it will play. More than half the videos have their id's this way and I cannot play them. By the way, these same video id's work at http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/. PLEASE HELP!!
