  • It seems that Andromo will only allow us to display YouTube videos by YouTube User or as a Feed. So a search query unfortunately seems out of the question. My suggestion would be to create a playlist on your YouTube account call it Audi R8 and add a bunch of Audi R8 YouTube videos to it. Then add that playlist (feed) to your app. Voila, you have Audi R8 videos on your app! It does suck doing it this way, but I believe that this is the only way to do it with Andromo as of now.
  • thanks for the input shaney...i thought of this also, i know what you mean but just not so ideal considering i would have to constantly search for and add videos in order to keep in some form of up to date videos...may just opt in to a youtube user on the subject of matter..
  • It is possible to generate a search query using the YouTube feed tool . Basically you'd enter a search query such as "audi+r8" in the "Search query" field under "Request Parameters."

    The returned value from the example above would be:

    `http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?q=audi+r8`
