I was so afraid, that I was right 1,000,000 Thanks for clarifying this for me!
Well, honestly, google may not be surprised then when people avoid their APIs and look for alternative options, like parsing the rtsp stream out of youtube's /feeds/ url and cheating mediaplayer instances to get what they want...
Google isn't stupid and the system DOES recognize abusers like that and can still cut off access.
The points system is in place because of abusers. If you're going to access the system more than most people you're going to pay for a larger chunk of maintaining the system. You can only get so much for free.
Sure - my App is planned mainly for playing (not uploading) videos, but still it's true that I can watch as many yt-videos per day as i like on youtube.com, but not in an app.
I would shift the decision about "how to upload the solution videos" (nvm, part of my app) to a later point in time then.
Nono, you're thinking I want to cheat youtube - let ME clarify: NO I DON'T.
I want to use it as official as anbody else. That's why I am looking at the google api's. the iframe api seems to fit almost all of my needs. It instanciates a standard, OFFICIAL YT.Player object made by google.
