  21.                         playlistItemsListRequest.PageToken = nextPageToken;  
  22.                         // Retrieve the list of videos uploaded to the authenticated user's channel.  
  23.                         var playlistItemsListResponse = playlistItemsListRequest.Execute();  
  24.                         foreach (var playlistItem in playlistItemsListResponse.Items)  
  25.                         {  
  26.                             Console.WriteLine("Sl No={0}", VideoCount);  
  27.                             Console.Write("Video ID ={0} """ + playlistItem.Snippet.ResourceId.VideoId);  
  28.                             //Console.Write("Video Title ={0} ", playlistItem.Snippet.Title);  
  29.                             //Console.Write("Video Descriptions = {0}", playlistItem.Snippet.Description);

  32.                             VideoCount++;  
  33.                         }  
  34.                         nextPageToken = playlistItemsListResponse.NextPageToken;  
  35.                     }  
  36.                     Console.ReadLine();  
  37.                 }  
  38.             }  
  39.             catch (Exception e)  
  40.             {  
  41.                 Console.WriteLine("Some exception occured" + e);
