Try Before You Buy

Posted by Stephanie Liu, YouTube APIs and Tools Team

We launched a great tool to help you play around with the Data API and wrap your head around all the basic API operations before diving into code.

Check it out:

Build query strings, experiment with the different feeds, and even make authenticated queries using AuthSub. This is also a great way to help debug problems with the API and compare responses against what you are seeing in your code.

Let us know if you have any feedback in the forum.
