As we have all noticed.. Youtube has changed the place where the player gets the video from so the old way to get the video location is not working anymore ie. youtube.com/get_video?..... Now videos are loading from google cache. and on the URL of the video there is some new parameters like signature and id (different id than the video id) and IP address of the person watching the video.. I have tried hard to try to figure out to to get these new parameters but in vain You can see the new location by downloading a video from youtube using keepvid. So can you guys take a look at this issue to try to figure out how to get the signature and id and these new parameters.. I beleive it can be useful also to figure out the new views count algorithm.
