So, I'm trying to create a youtube subscriber counter using thinghttp. I get the correct URL, the correct XPath, I've left the command on GET and tried both 1.0 and 1.1 http versions. However, when I got to the api link, I get the message 'Error parsing document, try a different parse string.' Help please?

If the content you are looking for is generated by JavaScript after the page is loaded, you will not be able to parse for it using ThingHTTP. If you look at the page source for your target, you may be able to determine how the content you are trying to access is generated.
