Can anyone say anything about the stability of this API? It looks fine on paper. I just tried a few demos:

jvoss@dmitry:~/recent$ curl http://api.mtvnservices.com/1/artist/tool/videos
curl: (18) transfer closed with 28 bytes remaining to read

The same query returned results on the third and fourth tries.

I had a bit of fun trying out what seems to be a bug in the api:

Video search and other methods are down. API says "there is no method by that name".

Try it out:
http://api.mtvnservices.com/1/video/search/?term=shins&start-index=1&max-results=1

Anyone knows what happened?
