Hello Folks,

YouTube.com, and by extension the YouTube API, will be in read-only
mode on Tuesday, September 20 starting at 5:00pm PDT. This should last
for approximately 4 to 6 hours.

YouTube API calls that create or update metadata or videos will fail
during this period of time. As a best practice, we recommend making
sure your code gracefully handles service errors on POST/PUT/DELETE
operations:
