if i manually try to process thr url that the script uses i get the response Invalid request URI
the url i used was: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/bbj911/newsubscriptionvideo
it's probably because bbj911 is your gmail username. the api apparently expects the actual youtube username.
ok i havent used that id in literally years
. i changed the properties file an ran the script again. it looks like there is some downloading happening now
