Integration of YouTube and Amazon SQS

YouTube has changed the way we watch videos. It is the largest video sharing website in the world. Many of us use YouTube to watch short clips of songs and movies. However, application developers can also use it to host video files, which makes it a rich source of data. The integration of YouTube and Amazon SQS is not new. Amazon SQS uses Work Queues to send messages to multiple destinations according to the message content. In this paper, we will discuss the integration of YouTube and Amazon SQS in detail and will include some benefits of this integration.

To understand the concept of integration of YouTube and Amazon SQS, first, let’s learn about Amazon SQS. Amazon SQS is a web service developed by Amazon Web Service (AWS. that allows you to easily set up queues for your applications and then access them from any application within a Java or .NET environment. It provides many features such as sending and receiving messages, delayed message delivery, and even allowing partial failure in deployments. For large applications, it is very difficult to maintain a centralized queue database. Maintaining a single queue database can cause performance issues, high latency problems, and even availability issues. With Amazon SQS, you can deploy multiple queues and distribute load across multiple sources. You can deploy an application on multiple servers and start receiving messages from those servers once they are ready to receive traffic.

Amazon SQS supports both synchronous and asynchronous messaging. Synchronous messages are delivered immediately to the receiver as soon as they are sent. Asynchronous message delivery is similar to ppl-and-response mechanism in which the receiver ppls for messages at regular intervals. This is useful for delivering messages at specific time intervals. For example, you can have an app running on some server that ppls for messages every five minutes from a message queue, reads the message, and performs some action or updates another queue with the response. This process will be executed automatically without any human intervention. The benefit of ppling over pushing is that ppling does not require any bandwidth on the send channel. For example, if the sender sends data continuously to the server over the internet connection, it could cause bandwidth issues for both server and client because sending and receiving data continuously over broadband connections is usually expensive. Similarly, if the sender sends data through a satellite or other radio link, there might be a delay in delivery as well as bandwidth limitations. So, sending huge amounts of data is not a good idea.

Now let’s move on to the integration of YouTube and Amazon SQS. Integration of YouTube and Amazon SQS essentially means uploading YouTube video links into an Amazon SQS queue and then pushing those links into another server where videos are actually played or downloaded. The process can be explained as fplows:

  • Uploading YouTube Video Links into an Amazon SQS Queue

The fplowing steps explain uploading YouTube video links into an Amazon SQS queue:

A developer creates a new task flow using Flex Builder 3 and saves it as a FLA file (.swf. This task flow contains a connector component called youtubeVideoUploader which accepts URL parameters for inputting YouTube video links. The connector component’s output is set to a variable called urlString which stores all the YouTube video links in string format.

The developer creates an AWS account and an IAM user with limited privileges. He/ she assigns this user permissions to access the Amazon SQS service through an API Access Key ID and Secret Access Key pair generated for this user by AWS after sign up process. Now he/ she creates an Amazon SQS queue using these credentials to store YouTube video links in it. Once he/ she creates the queue, he/ she uses the fplowing code snippet to upload YouTube video links into his/ her AWS account:

// Code snippet to upload YouTube video links into Amazon SQS Queue var queue = new com.amazonaws.services.sqs.AmazonSQS(); var params = { MessageBody. "testMessage", QueueUrl. "http://queue_url", }; queue.sendMessage(params); 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 // Code snippet to upload YouTube video links into Amazon SQS Queue var queue = new com . amazonaws . services . sqs . AmazonSQS ( . ; var params = { MessageBody . "testMessage" , QueueUrl . "http://queue_url" , } ; queue . sendMessage ( params . ;

Next thing our developer needs is a server that can read these YouTube video links from an Amazon SQS Queue and push them into a different server that can play them back for users. Therefore, he/she needs one more IAM user with limited privileges, which he/she creates using the same procedure mentioned above for creating IAM users for accessing the AWS services. In addition to all AWS services, this user is granted permission to access his/her own Amazon SQS queue created in Step 1 using its API Access Keys ID and Secret Access Key pair generated after signing up with AWS service. Now he/she creates a new server using MAMP or XAMPP (or any other development platform. He/she creates a PHP script called testPushUtils.php to read YouTube video links from an Amazon SQS Queue using PHP cURL library and then push them into another server via HTTP POST method using the post(. function available in PHP cURL library . He/she uses PHP cURL library because it is not allowed to directly access YouTube API from within IP addresses located in EC2 cloud computing services (Amazon Virtual Private Cloud. due to security reasons. So, it is necessary to use cURL library for integrating with API through httaccess . Our developer writes some code in testPushUtils.php file which reads YouTube video links from an Amazon SQS Queue using PHP cURL library :

// Code snippet to read YouTube video links from an Amazon SQS Queue $curl = curl_init($queueUrl); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('User-Agent. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_1. AppleWebKit/600.2.5 (KHTML, like Gecko. Version/8.0 Safari/600.2.5')); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION, 'header'); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); $data = curl_exec($curl); curl_close($curl); 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 // Code snippet to read YouTube video links from an Amazon SQS Queue $ curl = curl_init ( $ queueUrl . ; curl_setopt ( $ curl , CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER , true . ; curl_setopt ( $ curl , CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER , false . ; curl_setopt ( $ curl , CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST , false . ; curl_setopt ( $ curl , CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER , array ( 'User-Agent. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_1. AppleWebKit/600.2.5 (KHTML, like Gecko. Version/8.0 Safari/600.2.5' . . ; curl_setopt ( $ curl , CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION , 'header' . ; curl_setopt ( $ curl , CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER , true . ; $ data = curl_exec ( $ curl . ; curl_close ( $ curl . ;

Here, $queueUrl is the URL of your own Amazon SQS queue created in Step 1 while $data is the string containing YouTube video links in JSON format which are retrieved from your own Amazon SQS queue through cURL library . Now he/she pushes these video links into another server by writing some code in testPushUtils.php file which pushes these links into another server :

// Code snippet to push these video links into another server $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($
