This sample program demonstrates how to get youtube video thumbnails using VB 2008. Just enter the video URL at the textbox then using simple string manipulation, the program extracts the video id from the URL.
The video id is the unique identifier of the video generated by youtube when the video was uploaded. This video id is necessary for retrieving the thumbnails for the videos.
Have fun with the code.
Oh.. one more thing. Remember that you must be connected to the internet for this to work. lol :)
