Need someone to write a script that will identify deleted videos on my site


Recommended Posts

I have approximately 2,300 videos embedded on my site, and I am constantly adding more. The videos are hosted by YouTube. When a video is deleted from YouTube, it becomes unavailable on my site.

Each video's ID is in my MySQL database. A video ID looks like this:


I need a script that will do the following:

  1. select the IDs from my database
  2. check if the videos are still available on YouTube
  3. create a list of the videos that are unavailable.

If possible, it would be great if the script could also tell me if any of the videos have been blocked in certain countries.

The script has to be fully commented so that I can understand it.

I want to run the script manually every few days. I don't want to have to change my database tables.

I've been told that you can use YouTube's API or YouTube's oEmbed interface. I've also been told that, because there are so many videos, you will have to use cURL multi handles.

If interested in this project, please PM me your price.


This is an urgent project. I have placed ads elsewhere.
