International Support

In the internet world, everything has to evolve...

Even Google was in BETA for over 10 years...

Yesterday, I checked what was recently played on YoutubeRepeater and found a bunch of question marks... A lightning stroke through my mind - UNICODE - and how I usually don't like it.

Interestingly enough, Google Data XML feeds just send strings in unicode without any CDATA encoding. That was definitely different than the last time I had to deal with parsing XML.

A quick change of database datatypes to unicode (nvarchar and ntext) did the job.

  1. YouTube repeater will loop videos, but it will no longer allow the setting of begin and end times. It will only loop the entire video. This has been the case for a number of months. Using Mac OS 10.8.3.
