If you are using 2.2.3 and the stable release of YouTube it works out the box for me - considering it's a CURL error I suggest it's your WAMP install that is the problem.

If you are using the stable version of YouTube and 2.3 and have made the modification as per above, and you are still getting the same error then again I suggest it's your install of WAMP.

That's wierd... i've built 9 sites using the same WAMP server install and haven't had a single problem. It's only with this YouTube gallery page that it is causing the error. Everything else and all other modules are working correctly. Not sure what is going on. Thanks Matt anyway for your help.

Maybe the YouTube module makes a call that non of your other sites have made? Maybe in a more recent version of WAMP they have changed the configuration that has broken CURL?

Why not do a simple phpinfo(); and see the results for your server and search if the PHP CURL extension is installed. I am also running on the latest WAMP Server (my development box) and it has CURL installed. Just something to think about...

Howdy all!

I had the same problem with the curl_init() error. Turns out it was just that PHP wasn't compiled with the curl extensions. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 so the fix for anyone running that configuration is:

sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3 php5-curl

followed by an apache restart

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Funny enough I use WAMP at work and I had a similar problem. On that it was the same thing, the apache curl extension had not been loaded.

Hope that helps someone.

Like I said it sounded like it was more to do with CURL (being a CURL error) than anything else!

Yeah, that's exactly what was wrong. Installed fine onto my live server.

thanks for all your help.
