Youtube API with PHP

Anyone here using the Youtube API to pull in relevant videos to their site with PHP? Would love to know if this is worthwhile before i embark on another huge learning experience, e.g.

I think no one will be able to relate with that question as most of us here are not programmers / developers. But I believe there are plugins that can do that for you. :)

It's actually quite easy, as it turns out. Using FeedWordPress you can add the following:

https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/use ... ME/uploads

(changing USERNAME for the youtube user)

The only thing I can't figure out is how to access certain pieces of data in the feed by using an xPath expression and Wordpress Custom Fields

EDIT: Accessing other parts of the feed may be a limitation of FeedWordPress, as I noticed the thumbnail attribute is apparently defined in a different XML namespace, not entirely sure how that works but there we go. The ibm link I gave above manages to access it ok
