YouTube Search Result Integration

March 12, 2007

In late January we announced the inclusion of YouTube Video results in the Google Video search index. Early this evening, we updated the Google AJAX Search API to include YouTube Video results via the GvideoSearch object.

For those of you using our advanced video search controls, you now have search and playback access to Google Videos as well as YouTube Videos. The VideoBar control, as well as the personalized home page gadget now searches over and plays a mix of Google Video content and YouTube content, as does the Video Search control (and gadget).

The easiest way to add these to your pages is to use our VideoBar Wizard or our Video Search Wizard. With these, all you have to do is answer a question or two and then we will write the code for you and then you just cut and paste onto your pages.

As always, let us know what you thing in the AJAX Search API developer forum.
