Partial Responses and Updates with the YouTube API

We wanted to share some big news that was just announced on the Google Code blog: the YouTube API now supports partial responses and partial update requests. Both these features allow you to drastically cut down on the amount of data you send and receive via the API, which means simpler, faster API operations and happier users.

The announcement post on the Google Code blog goes into much more detail, so take a look at that first. When you’re ready to start writing code, check out the partial response and partial update sections of the YouTube API Developer’s Guide.

Cheers,
