    After installing PHPMVb and a few test runs, i got disappointed about the "relevance" of the video feeds it was posting to my blog.

    I put in a search for tags in youtube like so http://youtube.com/rss/tag/uspolitics.rss'(1)
    and it started posting videos about the bush administration ... what the fcku!

    Finally, after playing with for a few more hrs PHPMVb, i realised that it converted my URL to another query i.e youtube api query in this format http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds'(2)

    So, i did a search on youtube API queries. I found http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/2.0/reference.html

    i was able to reformat my feed for PHPMVb to this
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/standardfeeds/US/most_popular_News'(3)

    And Voila, i got a feed for 'barney-frank-confronts-woman-at-townhall-comparing-obama-to-hitler' much better.... although i found that the feed results are different from (1) are more recent from those in (3)... though they mentioned that it is good practise to search for videos from the previous day "logical". Which explain why (1) gives me more rescent results than (3).

    In Summary... if you are not satisfied with the results PHPMYVb is giving you use this resource http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/2.0/reference.html...

    It will help you refine the results from PHPMYVb!!!
