I just got the following e-mail out of nowhere:
“We’ve identified you as an owner or creator of one or more Google Cloud Platform projects which have been granted access to the YouTube API Services. The following projects have not accessed the Services in more than 90 days, and their API quota has been revoked in accordance with the Terms of Service.
If you plan to resume use of the Services, you can request quota using the form linked below.
I found a previous support topic for this plugin and it stated that it was because of the cache, i.e. video’s are cached and no calls are made to the YouTube API after that. That’s nice and all, but this is the first e-mail I got from Google and I’m already past that point.
See for yourself where they send you to request quota: the quota form.
There are 30 questions on this form, some of which I have no clue what they even mean. On top of that, at the end they request the following:
“Send documents (e.g., design documents, etc.) relating to your implementation, access, integration and use of YouTube API Services by each of your API Client/If the API Client is not accessible publicly, please upload a detailed screencast of each YouTube API Service functionality and YouTube data, content and information as displayed on, or integrated into, this API Client.”
Yeah, that’s going wayyyy too far for me. Do you, as the plugin maker, have a solution for this problem which many other users at some point will also have?
