Re: Youtube Api error

Youtube decided to basically shut down the api to users other than business partners.

I've sent an appeal to get old api access back but that takes 6-8 weeks for some reason.

In short, youtube does not want people using other platforms to watch youtube videos. They have been sneaking away functionality and adding restrictions over the last year so it's not a complete surprise.

You can still load videos into the app by pasting their url in the search bar btw.

Re: Youtube Api error

A quick fix is to find the video you want to watch on your browser and copy the link. Open Alt 1's YouTube app and past the link into the box where you would search for the video.
