What is it?

This is a PHP library to parse Metacafe's RSS feed (which they always change, and don't offer documentation), and play a bit with it :)

Demo usage

This library is curently in use at http://www.videouri.com and it works great. Enjoy

Basic usage

$page = isset($parameters['page']) ? 1 + ($parameters['page']-1) * 10 : 1;

switch ($parameters['action']) {
	case 'newest':
		$result = $this->metacafe->getMostRecentVideoFeed();
		break;
	case 'topRated':
		$result = $this->metacafe->getTopRatedVideoFeed();
		break;
	case 'mostViewed':
		$result = $this->metacafe->getMostViewedVideoFeed();
		break;
	/* Search and tags content */
	case 'search':
		$result = $this->metacafe->getKeywordVideoFeed($parameters['query'], array('start-index'=>$page, 'max-results' => 10));
		break;
	case 'tag':
		$result = $this->metacafe->getTagVideosFeed($parameters['query']);
		break;

	/* Video page with data and related videos */
	case 'getVideoEntry':
		//where $id could be (as an example) 304534 from 304534/bmw_m5_brutalllllllllll_drifting
		$result = $this->metacafe->getItemData($id);
		break;
	case 'related':
		$result = $this->metacafe->getRelatedVideos($id);
		break;
}
