Regular Expression

var pattern = /(\w+):\/\/([\w.]+)\/(\S*)/i;
var text = "Visit my home page at";
var result = text.match(pattern);

if(result != null){
	var fullurl = result[0];
	var protocol = result[1];
	var host = result[2];
	var path = result[3];

Note: Don’t use “g” for pattern or the result won’t be an array

Get parent dir:

function get_dir(url){
	var pattern = /(.+\/)\w+\.\w{3}$/i;
	var result = url.match(pattern);

	if(result != null){
		return result[1];
		return '';

Example to replace youtube embed URL:

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
	//Append video params automatically. e.g. autoplay, hide controls.
	$('.flexslider .video').each(function(index){
		var $this = $(this);
		if($this.html() == '') return;

		var code = $this.html();
		var pattern = /<iframe.+src="(.+)"\sframe.+/i;
		var result = code.match(pattern);

		var url = result[1];
		var new_code = code.replace(url, url + '?autoplay=1&showinfo=0&controls=0');
