HI,

I have a site where users can import youtube videos via url or embed code.
Problem is now I have close to 10000 videos.

But many are dead videos (that is the youtube no video thumb shows) or thumb shows and then video open says not found..

How do I find these in DB need to delete the same dead videos.
Little confusing since the videos are from youtube.

But have a whole lot of dead videos.

Regards

Hi,

I think you can use the YouTube API to run a check on a video using the video ID and if the check return false then you know what row to delete.
