How to extract elements that interest me in this list?

Posted 9 years ago

Hi all I would like to help me to do the following, I have following list :

prb = {{"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGfM-JEEBvs"}, \
{"http://www.dma.fi.upm.es/docencia/segundociclo/geomfrac/proyectos/\
tutorial-mov-brow/Pagina%20Inicio.htm"}, \
{"http://tierrafertil.com.mx/otorgan-galardon-internacional-\
investigador-de-chapingo/"},  {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO3X7udtZKI"}, \
    {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FhchwKHt00"}, \
    {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lgh0RuJWnM"}, \
    {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct3dabOl9aA"}, \
    {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyc8XmRDwPY"}, \
    {"http://community.wolfram.com/dashboard"}, \
    {"http://blogsocl.com/segun-experto-asi-luce-el-cuerpo-\
    cientificamente-perfecto-de-una-mujer-su-nombre-es-kelly-brook/#"}, , \
    {"http://blog.linuxmint.com/"}, \
    {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EpoIbj-i2o"}, \
    {"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZ969VcRTH0"}};

and I want to get in a single list all what start with "http://www.youtube something"

Thanks in advance, I hope that someone can help me because the original list contains about 300 elements too which complicates the task.

Thank you for the screenshot showing the input and the error message. That allows me to diagnose exactly what the problem is.

Look in your screenshot at the end of the fifth line. See that line ends with }, ,

That is a closing brace and two commas with no string between those commas.

Look at my previously posted solution which began with "Remove the extra comma you have between two strings in prb and then..."

Try doing that and my solution should then work.

If you cannot have a list of strings without extra commas then you may need to find a way to write a line of code to eliminate any Null items from your list of strings. Perhaps DeleteCases might help with that.
