Youtube API

I've been working with the Youtube APIĀ - http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/2.0/developers_guide_php.html - over the weekend, and have discovered that the documentation is not exactly up to date, and some things just dont work.

I may have to resort to the Drupal module - http://drupal.org/project/youtube_api/ - Even though it looks a little neglected, at least I can fix and send patches back to that.

Anybody else used either and would like to compare notes?

Google friend connect

Google's catchup to facebook connect is in action still, with updates/releases to the API made yesterday to allow better integration with other services.

In particular I was interested in using it with Drupal, and found this post: http://code.google.com/p/google-friend-connect-plugins/wiki/DrupalPlugin which was just updated on the 12th, so should be a very good introduction, and there is a drupal module already, which is great.

I'll try it out later and write another blog post.
