YouTube.com, and by extension the YouTube API, will be in read-only
mode on Monday, August 8 starting at 7:00pm PDT. This should last for
approximately 3 to 4 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
