We are looking for some specialist expertise with YouTube
We require a native Android Java function that can recover a very small piece of YouTube video < 20 seconds, and place it in a .mp4 file on the android filesystem. Like this :
fname=Get_vid ( vid_id, start_time mm:ss,end_time mm:ss);
fname=get_vid(v=3CJ6gxJyJDI, 01:32, 01:38)
The application will be running over LTE or 4g. So it is VERY important that we do not download the entire video.
Having done some preliminary research it seems the API does not support this. So we will need to resort to some other technique. We do not really care how complicated or ugly it is. It just needs to work.
As the API seems unusable for this function, we may need to resort to HTML 5, spoofing a browser, are Other tricky Solutions.
This represents the most difficult part of a very large application. So we are keen to get a solution
