I think it's because you're referencing the capture group with index
instead of index 2. Also, I don't understand why you have the pipe
("|") character in your regex string... is that part of your engine?

This code:

$orig = 'http://www.zshare.net/video/541070871c7a8d9c';
$matches = array();
preg_match('#http://(www\.)zshare\.net/video/([^/]+)#', $orig, $matches);
echo $matches[2];

Grabs the correct match:


The regex pattern works with the pipe char, but it is unnecessary and
may lead to some strange behavior.

Hope this helps,
