Google provides several tools to help you develop applications that retrieve YouTube Analytics data.
- Applications should use the YouTube Reporting API if they retrieve data and store it in a data warehouse, then provide tools to filter, sort, and mine that data.
- Applications should use the YouTube Analytics API to retrieve customized reports from YouTube in response to user interaction.
|APIs Explorer||You can use the APIs Explorer to test and debug API queries. The tool enables you to authorize requests and see API responses.
|Client libraries||Google API client libraries, which are available for many programming languages, can greatly simplify your API implementation. In addition, the Samples section of the documentation provides a number of code samples that use the client libraries to retrieve YouTube Analytics data.
The links below point to documentation for Google API client libraries:
|Code samples||The youtube/api-samples GitHub repository contains all of the code samples accessible via the Samples tab.|
