Lets know how youtube calculate video id


Share at Facebook

CCViD just published their another product recently. This time its the reverse engineering tool for YouTube video id hack. Using the tool you can easily get the corresponding doc id for Google video.

If you enter the video url of youtube, the site will return the google video using doc id format. Same for google video id, it will return the youtube video ID.

They did not provided any other information about how they are decoding the video id from one format to another one. I have tested the tool, and it seems to be working for me. I think they did the same ID translation calculation as google, otherwise it won't work.

You can test the tool from here http://www.ccvid.com/apps/doc-id-youtube/
