Usage

Parsing

Parsing a url will return a videoInfo object with all the information

> urlParser.parse('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRb7B9fPhfA')
{ mediaType: 'video',
  id: 'HRb7B9fPhfA',
  provider: 'youtube' }
 
> urlParser.parse('https://vimeo.com/97276391')
{ mediaType: 'video',
  id: '97276391',
  provider: 'vimeo' }
 
> urlParser.parse('http://www.twitch.tv/tsm_wildturtle')
{ mediaType: 'stream',
  channel: 'tsm_wildturtle',
  provider: 'twitch' }
 
> urlParser.parse('http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1e2b95')
{ mediaType: 'video',
  id: 'x1e2b95',
  provider: 'dailymotion' }

Any url but the id parameter will be saved in the params object

> urlParser.parse('https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xLcSTDeB7A&index=25&list=PL46F0A159EC02DF82&t=1m40')
{
  provider: 'youtube',
  id: 'yQaAGmHNn9s',
  list: 'PL46F0A159EC02DF82',
  mediaType: 'video',
  params: {
    start: 100,
    list: 'PL46F0A159EC02DF82',
    index: '25'
  }
}

URL Creation

The VideoInfo objects can be turned back into a 'short', 'embed' or 'long' url where 'long' is the default. Embedded links will be protocol relative.

> urlParser.create({
    videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HRb7B9fPhfA'),
    format: 'short'
  })
'https://youtu.be/HRb7B9fPhfA'
> urlParser.create({
    videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HRb7B9fPhfA')
  })
'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRb7B9fPhfA'
> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HRb7B9fPhfA'),
  format: 'embed'
})
'//youtube.com/embed/HRb7B9fPhfA'
 
> urlParser.create({
    videoInfo: urlParser.parse('https://vimeo.com/97276391')
  })
'https://vimeo.com/97276391'
> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('https://vimeo.com/97276391'),
  format: 'embed'
})
'//player.vimeo.com/video/97276391'
 
> urlParser.create({
    videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.twitch.tv/tsm_wildturtle')
  })
'https://twitch.tv/tsm_wildturtle'
> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.twitch.tv/tsm_wildturtle'),
  format: 'embed'
})
'//www.twitch.tv/tsm_wildturtle/embed'
 
> urlParser.create({
    videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1e2b95'),
    format: 'short'
  })
'https://dai.ly/x1e2b95'
> urlParser.create({
    videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1e2b95')
  })
'https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1e2b95'
> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1e2b95'),
  format: 'embed'
})
'//www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x1e2b95'

Url parameters can be added by adding a params object

> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQaAGmHNn9s'),
  params:{
    start: 100,
    list: 'PL46F0A159EC02DF82',
    index: '25',
    foo: 'bar'
  }
})
'https://youtube.com/watch?foo=bar&index=25&list=PL46F0A159EC02DF82&v=yQaAGmHNn9s#t=100'

To the reuse the params in the videoInfo object without having to save it in a temp variable use the keyword 'internal' as params

> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('https://youtube.com/watch?foo=bar&index=25&list=PL46F0A159EC02DF82&v=yQaAGmHNn9s#t=100'),
  params: 'internal'
})
'https://youtube.com/watch?foo=bar&index=25&list=PL46F0A159EC02DF82&v=yQaAGmHNn9s#t=100'
> urlParser.create({
  videoInfo: urlParser.parse('https://youtube.com/watch?foo=bar&index=25&list=PL46F0A159EC02DF82&v=yQaAGmHNn9s#t=100'),
  params: 'internal',
  format: 'embed'
})
'//youtube.com/embed/yQaAGmHNn9s?foo=bar&index=25&list=PL46F0A159EC02DF82&start=100'
