JavaScript Code

$(document).ready(function() { //jquery     
    var video = $(location).attr('href').split('v=')[1];

    function numberformat(number, n, x) {
        var re = '(\\d)(?=(\\d{' + (x || 3) + '})+' + (n > 0 ? '\\.' : ') + ')'; 
        return number.toFixed(Math.max(0, ~~n)).replace(new RegExp(re, 'g'), '$1,');
        cache: false,
        data: $.extend({
            key: 'API_KEY',
            id: video
        }, {}),
        dataType: 'json',
        type: 'GET',
        timeout: 5000,
        url: ',contentDetails,statistics,status&fields=items(id,snippet,statistics,contentDetails,status)'
    }).done(function(data) {
        var items = data.items[0];
        console.log(items); // Add player 
        $("#hyv-player-api").html('<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="' + + '?rel=1&showinfo=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>'); // Add title 
        $("#hyv-eow-title").text(items.snippet.title); // Add thumb img 
        $(".hyv-thumb-clip").html('<img width="48" height="48" src="' + items.snippet.thumbnails.default.url + '" />'); // Add View Count 
        $("#hyv-watch-views-info .hyv-watch-view-count").text(numberformat(parseInt(items.statistics.viewCount))); // Add title 
        $(".hyv-user-info").text(items.snippet.channelTitle); // Add publish data 
        $(".hyv-watch-time-text").text("Published on " + items.snippet.publishedAt); // Add publish data 
        new PrettyJSON.view.Node({
            el: $(".hyv-watch-sidebar-body"),
