Hi, I'm wondering if anybody would be interested in helping me with what I think is a small project.
Basically I want to build an external hit counter for a YouTube video.
I'm thinking Arduino in conjunction with some scripting on a computer to retrieve the data and send it to the Arduino. Maybe even an Arduino with network shield. I would like it to drive an LED display to show the number of hits.
I have seen a few tutorials online but they all seem to only do an action when there is a hit, not actually count the hits.
I know a little Arduino and could probably pull the code together with a little help. The biggest issue I have is figuring out how to pull the number of views from the YouTube video and sending that to the Arduino.
If you look at the source code for a YouTube page, the number of views is easy to find and strip out.
Anybody interested in helping me out in this project ?
