I was trying GData to access YouTube. If you don’t know, Google Data APIs is Google way of reading and writing data on the web. Many Google Services support it now.
As quoted, these APIs use either of two standard XML-based syndication formats: Atom or RSS. They also have a feed-publishing system that consists of the Atom publishing protocol plus some extensions (using Atom’s standard extension model) for handling queries.
Well, it is good that the APIs support ATOM which is my preference nowadays. GData supports the following client libraries for now.
Try it out. It is interesting…
