Find YouTube Videos that Were Shot Near Your Location using Videos Near Me

YouTube.com, being one of the most popular video sharing websites on the net, features content of all types. I consider YouTube to be educational, fun, entertaining, ridiculous and even stupid. I also consider the wide multitude of people on YouTube to be educated, fun, entertaining, ridiculous, stupid and just plain dumb as well. It has been reported that the widely used video website has nearly 500 million users. In today’s post, we will review how you can filter YouTube based on location and geography.

Amit Agarwal, technology blogger for Wall Street Journal India and founder of the website Digital Inspiration has recently published a web based application that can find YouTube videos based on geo location.

Dubbed “Videos Near Me,” Amit has modified the Google Maps API, Google Feeds API and YouTube API to fetch YouTube Videos that have been geo-tagged based on location.

To get started, simply jump to the Videos Near Me page and drag the Google Maps pointer to any location on earth.

From there, the YouTube videos will be queued and presented in list format below the map. Additionally, because it can be difficult to specify an exact location using Google Maps, the exact address that is being used for the query will be listed.

Clicking a video from the list will open it directly within the Videos Near Me page, but of course, you can click the YouTube logo to view the page on YouTube.com.

That’s basically all there is to it. Videos Near Me is a simplistic, yet effective method for sorting YouTube videos based on geo-location, a feature that YouTube currently has not yet supported or added. While very simple, the Videos Near Me page offers a fun way to find YouTube content that was shot near a specific location.
