LolVid

Recently I made a video aggregator that scrapes reddit’s /R/Videos for YouTube links; it takes the top YouTube link once a hour and adds it to its database of videos:

This drastically cuts down the mounds of video that is otherwise published every hour taking only the cream of the crop thanks to reddit’s hive mind. It’s nowhere near perfect yet and needs a lot of tweaking, but shows how a content rich site can be created in hours by utilizing api’s top sites offer.
