Get Youtube Video Thumbnails using VB 2008

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 :)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
