Gnip, never ceasing to expand access to social media data, has launched its YouTube Comments API. With the new API, Gnip hopes to offer more value to social media managers with regards to insight-rich comments that often prove difficult to harness as comments continue far after a YouTube post. Gnip includes the API as part of its famed Enterprise Data Collector.
The YouTube Data API can be used to upload and search for videos, manage playlists and subscriptions, update channel settings and more. In part 3 of this tutorial, we continue to extend our code and show you how to use the API to build a simple app that can return the contents of a playlist.
