Hello, am trying to use minihtmlparser to get youtube direct download link from this website
But when i run the app, sometimes the same link will work, sometimes it will crash.

Currently I use Try and Catch, sometimes it will return "Not Found" but when you try again then it gives result

Edit: The link i want is in this format


B4X:
Sub getYoutubeLink(content As String) As String
    Dim link As String
    Try
        Dim parser As MiniHtmlParser
        parser.Initialize
        Dim root As HtmlNode = parser.Parse(content)
        Dim sf_result As HtmlNode = parser.FindNode(root,"div",parser.CreateHtmlAttribute("id","sf_result"))
       
        parser.PrintNode(sf_result) 'For debugging
       
        Dim btnbox As HtmlNode = parser.FindNode(sf_result,"div",parser.CreateHtmlAttribute("class","def-btn-box"))
        Dim atag As HtmlNode = parser.FindNode(btnbox,"a",Null)
   
        link = parser.GetAttributeValue(atag,"href",Null)
    Catch
        Log(LastException)
        link = "Not Found"
    End Try
   
    Return cleanAmp(link)
End Sub

Sub cleanAmp(link As String) As String
    Return link.Replace("amp;","")
End Sub

I've tested it with:
B4X:
Dim parser As MiniHtmlParser
parser.Initialize
Dim root As HtmlNode = parser.Parse(File.ReadString("C:\Users\H\Downloads\result.txt", "")) 'B4J
Dim sf_result As HtmlNode = parser.FindNode(root,"div",parser.CreateHtmlAttribute("id","sf_result"))
Dim btnbox As HtmlNode = parser.FindNode(sf_result,"div",parser.CreateHtmlAttribute("class","def-btn-box"))
Dim atag As HtmlNode = parser.FindNode(btnbox,"a",Null)
Log(parser.GetAttributeValue(atag,"href",Null))
The output looks correct.

Yes, the B4J crashes less often than the B4A, also the crash happens more frequent in direct online link than saved link.

Kindly test the exported B4A sample above and put this link in it -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bInJjmH31Hk
you will see it will return "Not found" and when you click the button multiple times before the link will be generated.

Edit: The try catch block out gives this error

(NullPointerException) java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'boolean java.lang.String.equals(java.lang.Object)' on a null object reference

The code you posted and mine are the same from what I can see. And from my post you can see I said the B4J app rarely crash that's why I wanted you to test with the B4A.

With the B4A sample project I posted above, it's when you put in the YouTube link, sometimes you have to click the button to retry couple of times before you get the link - because of the try and catch block.

But without the try and catch, it crashes immediately

So my post #5 is just trying to give you the steps to reproduce the crash
