  video = VideoInfo.new("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZqGqE0D0n4", "User-Agent" => "My Youtube Mashup Robot/1.0")

  video = VideoInfo.new("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZqGqE0D0n4", "Referer"    => "http://my-youtube-mashup.com/",
                                                                      "User-Agent" => "My Youtube Mashup Robot/1.0")

You can also use symbols instead of strings (any non-word (/[^a-z]/i) character would be converted to hyphen).

  video = VideoInfo.new("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZqGqE0D0n4", :referer    => "http://my-youtube-mashup.com/",
                                                                      :user_agent => "My Youtube Mashup Robot/1.0")

User-Agent when empty defaults to "VideoInfo/VERSION" - where version is current VideoInfo version, e.g. "VideoInfo/0.2.7".

It supports all openURI header fields (options), for more information see: openURI DOCS
