Recently the YouTube gallery pages I used stopped working (displayed no video any more) and output the following error message:

Notice: Error occurred in processing YouTube response in /(...)/public_html/youtubeservice/code/YoutubeService.php on line 90 (see trace below)

The pages were working fine 2 weeks ago (and possibly more recently).

From the error details below I guess the API changed... but don't know how to fix it. you have any hint?
(this is quite urgent as the website is in production....). I used the "display playlist" option of this module, feel free to try with the youtube playlist id 03BE864A5392CD9F, it should work.


exception details:

exception 'Exception' with message 'String could not be parsed as XML' in /(...)/public_html/youtubeservice/code/YoutubeService.php:55

I got this answer from Lakshan, the original module developper:

 Yeah this module is deprecated now as YouTube has changed their API
 structure since release of this module.

 I'm currently stuck with some other commitments, so sorry about not releasing a new update.
 But I'm sure there may be other contributors who may work on the next version of this module.

If any want knows where I can find some more info about the youtube API please give me the pointers and I'll try to correct the module as I really need it ;o)
