Project Description

I need somebody to fix my function so that it will work with all types of YouTube pages - branded / unbranded / old layout / new layout. Should be an easy task for anyone with past webbrowser automation, this is not my area as I usually use sockets compared to browser methods so am not fully versed with this yet.
