The code on your GitHub, for the most part, seems fine.

One thing I can say is don't use exec[1] if you can avoid it:

    $string = 'rm /var/www/Giftest/*.gif';
    exec($string);
While there's nothing * technically* wrong, it's platform specific and I think it would be better to use PHP's unlink[2] function. Also, sorry if this is wrong, I haven't looked at the regex but it seems your parsing YouTube URLs? Have you looked at oEmbed[3] - it may be an easier way to accomplish what your doing? You can use it with json_decode[4] to get an object.
