I love when I run brew update and it changes around dynamically-linked libraries, destroying many other binaries and interpreteres in the process! Sincerily, someone who just had to rebuild my site generator to relink its libraries to publish this šŸ˜„

I realize Iā€™m being a reply guy here, sorry.

I have recently put some work into improving my YouTube RSS feed approach.

Channel feed

The official YouTube feed resource works well for me.

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=username
https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=channel_id

Playlist feed

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?playlist_id=playlist_id

YouTube's official feed only shows the first 30 or so items in any given playlist. If you're unlucky enough to subscribe to one of the 50% of playlists where the owner appends new videos to the end of the playlist, as opposed to prepending them to the beginning, the feed will never reflect that once it has enough items.

To fix this, I wrote my own feed processor using the YouTube Data API v3 client and Java. If you want to subscribe to the beginning of the playlist, pass or omit the reverse=false query parameter, and to subscribe to the end, pass reverse=true.

My good man, please reply all you like! This is super useful, way better than my way of finding the feeds lol :smile: And thanks for sharing the API link!
