Hey! I liked this video made by Tom Scott go and watch it, kinda interesting video to spend few minutes in your evening, but story is not about this.. He made video and attached YouTube data API to it that automatically changes title to "This video has XXX views.", so i tried to imitate it and make my own version of it.

This was my first experience making youtube video, so don't be too harsh, but coding part was nice and simple and i made it to work easily..



My video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbvQZTotBU8

Source code

Take a look at file update-tile.php if you are interested in code that updates title.
