Hello guys,
I want to put youtube video bar in my website... and i already found the way to do it. Using google ajax search api. Google already provide the wizard to generate the code.

The problem is, by default it shows only 4 videos for horizontal view. I am really having trouble to increase the video number.Can anyone suggest me any alternatives or some modifications.

Maybe reading the GSVideoBar reference can help you in properly customizing your video bar. As for your problem, you can decrease the size of thumbnails or increase the dimensions of your DIV to get more than 4 videos per strip. For further tweaking please refer the official documentation and in case of queries post in the Google Ajax Search API user group to get a quick response.

Here is a sample snippet:

    }

  <script type="text/javascript">
    function LoadVideoBar() {
      var videoBar;
      var barContainer = document.getElementById("videoBar");

      var options = {
        largeResultSet : true,
        horizontal: true,
        thumbnailSize : GSvideoBar.THUMBNAILS_LARGE,
        autoExecuteList : {
          cycleTime : GSvideoBar.CYCLE_TIME_MEDIUM,
          cycleMode : GSvideoBar.CYCLE_MODE_LINEAR,
          executeList : [ "ytfeed:most_viewed.this_week", "bud light",
                          "ytchannel:fordmodels", "vw gti" ]
        }
      }

      videoBar = new GSvideoBar(barContainer, GSvideoBar.PLAYER_ROOT_FLOATING, options);
    }
    GSearch.setOnLoadCallback(LoadVideoBar);
  </script>
</head>
<body>
    <div id="videoBar">Loading...</div>
</body>
</html>

i found out that this lines of code is very useful

var options = {
      largeResultSet : true,
       horizontal: true,

i changed it to

var options = {
      largeResultSet : false,
       horizontal: true,

now i can have 8 videos huhu..
