Grake – a tool for scanning web pages for Youtube Video URL

grake is a command-line tool for scanning web pages for embedded Youtube video link. As a scanning tool, grake is meant to complement other tool that would accept Youtube URL as its parameter, notably cclive.

Usage Example:

# general command line example

# typical / normal use

#output as json (for programmatic consumption)
grake –json

#tell cclive to download youtube urls from grake output

grake | cclive

This of course require the latest release of cclive in order for the download example to work.

Youtube: Google+ Music Video

This video sums up just the thing you wanted to know about Google+

Check my email, got an invite
To a website I don’t know
Looked like googlebuzz at first sight,
But my friend said that’s a no.
Why did we need, another social network?
Doesn’t Facebook work alright?
A new thing for me to learn
This could take all night, Look out!

What is this google +
I don’t Need google +
There’s another +1 and another +1
What is this google +
Hey, Why’s this red thing here?
Go away google +

You want me to put my friends in circles
But circles are for squares
Everday’s like Sophie’s choice
Trying to choose which friend goes where
But No Parents, or Ex-boyfriends…
Can get in without invites
And when I drunkenly post that he’s cute
I can edit it later that night – whoa

I kinda like google +
Can’t believe I’m on google +
Oh another hangout, and another hang out
I dig my google +
Hey, old high school friend
You can’t join my google +

Friends add me, without me adding them
That feature’s really nice
my pot dealer
and all these friend’s I’ve never liked
No one knows, my circle names,
So even good friend’s get handpicked
Do you make it into my main feed
or do I add you to my circle of pricks

I’m in love with google plus
I’m judgemental on goggle +
and Another douchebag and another loser
You didn’t make my google plus
Hey, Now I’m a facist pig
Thank you google plus!
