youtube-sig

No longer works

Google has changed their methods enough and I don't care enough at this time to go hunting for a fix.

Beside there are probably better ways to accomplish this.

youtube-sig

Will attempt to identify the signature needed to download Youtube videos.

Should everything work as it should, it will return a JSON object with the name of the method, the method code, and the javascript file it is found in.

{ url: 'http://s.ytimg.com/yts/jsbin/html5player-vflART1Nf.js',
  methods: [
    { func: 'hj',
       code: 'function hj(a){a=a.split("");a=a.slice(3);a=a.reverse();var b=a[0];a[0]=a[63%a.length];a[63]=b;a=a.slice(2);a=a.reverse();a=a.slice(1);return a.join("")}'
    }
  ]
}

Install
