    set_time_limit(60 * 3);
    session_start();
    
    $g_youtubeDataAPIKey = "***";

    $commentId = "z12jy3qp3q21e3se322ttjmaqlimxxohg04.1496042388885297";
    
    $_SESSION["code_id"] = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
    
    if ($_SESSION["access_token"] == null || $_SESSION["access_token"] == "") {
   	 // check for oauth response
   	 header("Location: ../../init-login.php");
   	 exit;
    }
   	 
   	 $accessToken = $_SESSION["access_token"];

   	 // make api request
   	 $url = "https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/comments?key=" . $g_youtubeDataAPIKey .
   			  "&access_token=" . $accessToken . "&id=" . $commentId;

   	 
   	 $curl = curl_init();
   	 curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
   				 CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => 1,
