Video Platforms Parser

Video Platforms Parser

The Video Platforms parser PHP package by @chojnicki is an easy-to-use SDK for multiple platforms like YouTube, Dailymotion, Facebook, and more.

The API usage is simple, you can get video info like this:

$info = $parser->get('https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jofNR_WkoCE');

Here’s some sample output from Dailymotion, which is similar data you’ll see from any supported platform:

>>> \VideoPlatformsParser::get('https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6qac05?playlist=x5xlnc');
=> [
     "id" => "x6qac05",
     "platform" => "dailymotion",
     "title" => "Simon Pegg on His Most Iconic Characters",

Simon stars in "Mission: Impossible - Fallout," out in theaters July 27th.",
