This is a project by Jorge and Guillermo from the Lamboratory.
It all begun in March 2008, when we attended a "Google Open
Pizza Night" in Madrid, where the new YouTube API was introduced.
Prizes were promised for the best apps developed during the hands-on
session, and it came to our minds a Simpsons episode
where the kids participate in a study dynamically rating Itchy &
Scratchy videos. We thought it'd be great to enable that kind of
audience-ratings for any YouTube video.
we developed there was quite simple, to say the least, but we were the
proud winners though. (Well, the fact that no-one else submitted
anything helped a lot;-).
In November 2008 we finally developed a slightly improved prototype in TubeGraph.com. For those interested in the technologies used, TubeGraph uses:
- YouTube API, to deal with the video data.
- Google Chart API, to make the graphs.
- Google App Engine, so we run our application in Google's infrastructure.
We plan to explain some of the main technical characteristics in
this blog. In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact us with any
suggestion or comment you may have. Enjoy TubeGraph!
