Searching YouTube using the REST API

Here we'll show you how to use cURL to search for videos on YouTube.

Get Set Up

1 Log in to Temboo. If you don't already have an account, you can register for free here.

2 Go to the YouTube > Search > ListSearchResults Choreo in our Library.

Test the Choreo

3Now let's test the YouTube > Search > ListSearchResults Choreo directly from our website. Use the Query input to search YouTube for your favorite topic.

4 Click Run and you'll see a JSON formatted list of videos in the Response output in the Output section.

Try it with Curl

5Next, copy the auto-generated cURL command by selecting the "cURL" option from the the language selector in the Code section.

6To run the command, copy it directly into your terminal or console. Your code should look something like this:

curl --basic -u APP_NAME: APP_KEY --header "x-temboo-domain: /ACCOUNT_NAME/master" --header "Content-Type: application/json" --header "Accept: application/json" -X POST --data '{"inputs": [{"name":"Query", "value":"Karen O & The Kids"}]}' ""

7Run the code and check out your YouTube search results.
