gw2vids.net
Brit and Nagga gave me the idea the other night. I have programmed the basic functionality of scraping channels from youtube using their api. New videos from select YouTube accounts are automatically added to the database and presented on the site.

Everything was programmed in Python, with extensive use of Django's ORM to handle connections to the mySQL service. Everything is running on my $3.50/mo VPS in cali.

Don't make fun of the theme, I just recycled the same stylesheet I used for my blog over at groundupnet.com (nerd alert)

Well, here is the site. I will be adding more features like user ratings and shit in the future.

I posted the view that handle scraping youtube over at my blog if anyone wants to spec!

RE: gw2vids.net
yea, eventually. I'll probably use a more annoying ad network. Im going to do a redesign of the templates. I just used the .css styles from my blog with mimnimal changes so the site kinda looks like shit. (unlike my blog!)

RE: gw2vids.net
I started writing a filter that will remove redundant terms from the video titles, such as 'Guild Wars 2' and 'GW2.' Since all the videos are gw related there is no need to have it in the title of every video.

I am also plottin' up a new design obviously.

RE: gw2vids.net
Got the title filter in place. I also started adjusting the stylesheets in the browser rather than doing a design from the ground-up. Lookin better though. Also organised the users in the side bar to be ordered by upload count.

Need to add a search, view by rating, and a channel submission form.

I did leave space for some ads tho!
