Youtube video information - 29/03/21 12:07 PM

So I have been trying with all different ways to read YouTube video information.
My conclusion is that I need to read from "www.googleapis.com" and retrieve information with API key.
I have seen another post on this forum about this, and he could fix the problem but this was from 2014.
I can use this api when i use my webbrowser, but not in mIRC.

Here is my example Script I'm trying to test with. But always return 3 or 404 from the site.
Example: /youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wb5HWVh6Fs
And this would return the video title, likes and such.
alias youtube {
  if (https://www.youtube.com isin $1-) {
    set %linked $remove($wildtok($1-,$ifmatch $+ *,1,32),https://)
    set %apikey = X
    sockopen -e ytube www.googleapis.com 80
on *:sockopen:ytube:{ 
  if (!$sockerr) {
    sockwrite -n $sockname GET $+(/youtube/v3/videos?id=,$remove($gettok(%linked,2-,47),watch?v=),&key=,%apikey,&fields=items(id,snippet(channelId,title,categoryId),statistics)&part=snippet,statistics) HTTP/1.1
    sockwrite -n $sockname Host: www.googleapis.com
    sockwrite -n $sockname $crlf
  else {
    echo -a $sockerr
    sockclose $sockname

on *:sockread:ytube:{

  if ($sockerr) { echo -a $sockerr | sockclose $sockname | return }
  else {
    var %check | sockread %check
    while ($sockbr) {
      echo -a %check
      sockread %check

/sockopen -e should be used with port 443

Thanks. I also found out that I have been using the apikey as set %apikey = key.
I guess I used another language than MSL. Changed to %apikey apikey, worked lol.
