    This should not take more than a few hours and we have waited over two months, our sites have crashed in rankings and traffic and we are facing losses.

    what about fast fix to use id instead of username?
    open lib/engine.php
    search for (line 1236)

        $channelResponse = $youtube->channels->listChannels('id', array('forUsername' => $data['forUsername']));


        $terms['channelId'] = $data['forUsername'];

    Look that is not an option we have set-up several feeds which use both ID and Playlist which I mentioned to you last month as well and they need to be specific since categories are driven by them, we need this working as before - because except for the API upgrade with new security features - this should not have been impacted.

    If we keep hacking the code then upgrades become an issue and we have no idea what has changed

    You have delayed this for months and we do not understand what the issue is in fixing this? You have 48 hours to , we have been very patient and have lost a lot because of this...

    i think we can make fetch by channel id and username and tag
    the playlist option will be hard right now

  6. Please try - I think it should be simple fix. It was available before in Mediat 1.3 . Every option YouTube allows provides more flexibility to pick select content, else we get a lot of junk, and manual intervention to create and file under categories is extensive.

    no changes yet, did you know this rss links

  12. "no changes yet", but you know we have a crisis on our hands?

    Also we discovered some serious new issues, a) Old (from 2011 videos are randomly being fetched b) The videos are no longer automatically going into categories we assigned for some reason.

    I do not understand your comment about the rss links?

  17. This works, however whats the purpose of RSS based link, it does not give analytics, and does not solve issues around channel and playlist - just another option that's all.

  18. Our ranking has dropped by a few million on Alexa and our site sucks, the feeds are not getting auto categorized, they are not coming frequently (old stale videos)..This is the end of the content sites we created using your script....

    You will need to get it updated now!!


    It does not work for above user ids why? - so it works selectively and we have waited 3 months for a solution please, the sites are a mess.
