$results = Youtube::search('Android');

$videoList = Youtube::searchVideos('Android');

// Search only videos in a given channel, return an array of PHP objects
$videoList = Youtube::searchChannelVideos('keyword', 'UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg', 40);

// List videos in a given channel, return an array of PHP objects
$videoList = Youtube::listChannelVideos('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg', 40);

$results = Youtube::searchAdvanced([ /* params */ ]);

// Get channel data by channel name, return an STD PHP object
$channel = Youtube::getChannelByName('xdadevelopers');

// Get channel data by channel ID, return an STD PHP object
$channel = Youtube::getChannelById('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg');

// Get playlists by multiple ID's, return an array of STD PHP objects

// Get channel activities by channel ID, return an array of PHP objects
$activities = Youtube::getActivitiesByChannelId('UCk1SpWNzOs4MYmr0uICEntg');

// Retrieve video ID from original YouTube URL
$videoId = Youtube::parseVidFromURL('https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moSFlvxnbgk');
// result: moSFlvxnbgk

Basic Search Pagination

// Set default parameters
$params = [
    'q'             => 'Android',
    'type'          => 'video',
    'part'          => 'id, snippet',
    'maxResults'    => 50
];

// Make intial call. with second argument to reveal page info such as page tokens
$search = Youtube::searchAdvanced($params, true);

// Check if we have a pageToken
if (isset($search['info']['nextPageToken'])) {
    $params['pageToken'] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];
}

// Make another call and repeat
$search = Youtube::searchAdvanced($params, true);

// Add results key with info parameter set
print_r($search['results']);

/* Alternative approach with new built-in paginateResults function */

// Same params as before
$params = [
    'q'             => 'Android',
    'type'          => 'video',
    'part'          => 'id, snippet',
    'maxResults'    => 50
];

// An array to store page tokens so we can go back and forth
$pageTokens = [];

// Make inital search
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, null);

// Store token
$pageTokens[] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];

// Go to next page in result
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, $pageTokens[0]);

// Store token
$pageTokens[] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];

// Go to next page in result
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, $pageTokens[1]);

// Store token
$pageTokens[] = $search['info']['nextPageToken'];

// Go back a page
$search = Youtube::paginateResults($params, $pageTokens[0]);

// Add results key with info parameter set
print_r($search['results']);

The pagination above is quite basic. Depending on what you are trying to achieve you may want to create a recursive function that traverses the results.
