    Hi Prateek,
    the "search-issue" is solved. Nicely done! But I'm sorry to have to tell you that i still get the parse error (see my comment on previous version 1.0).

    But I'm pretty sure, it has to do with my Setup. Just can't figure out where the problem is. I tested on my local apache server (xampp) and a clean elgg 1.5 installation on rented webspace server. Same result both ways.
    Maybe it colides with an other plugin? But I disabled all exept for the ones that come with elgg installation package. Same result.
    Maybe browser? I use firefox latest version 3.0.11. Tried also IE7. Same result.

    I bet it is the Server-Setup. PHP.ini maybe. But I'm not enough in to that so I could figure out the problem myself.

    Still I think it's a good plugin. Mabe you could add social tagging, or even better, give the owner of video-list the option to alow social tagging for his/her videos? I wish for a feature like that on the tidypcs-plugin as well. Would be great!

    Hi David, This really sounds strange.However let us go step by step :

    1) inside actions folder addvideo.php uses two simple php function : The SimpleXML functions (are part of the PHP core, no installation needed to use these functions). This is where parsing is done. so the issue is not this.

    2) Youtube is not sending back the response with the xml tree structure, so no content is being received to get parsed as xml (this may be fixed by registering to youtube for a new developer id(dev_id).

    Hope this solves the issue.

    I like the plugin and it works OK here, except for one bug. The widget does not display the correct number of videos, as set in the edit section of the widget. This is easily fixed by modifying videolist/views/default/widgets/videolist_view/view.php, line 10 is:

        $owner_videos = get_entities("object", "videolist", page_owner(), $number);

    While it should be:

        $owner_videos = get_entities("object", "videolist", page_owner(), "", $number);

    I'm using Elgg 1.6

    I am trying to make changes to plugin to make it compatible with elgg 1.7. I was getting token error when I try to add a video from youtube.

    I followed the elgg documentation on making secure forms and did some code changes to add.php in forms folder and was able successfully add a video. But the problem I am facing is that, its allowing only for first time. From next time onwards its giving a broken url or link. It gives a message that Video is successfully added but it shows a broken link.
