Java Code Samples

The following code samples, which use the Google APIs Client Library for Java, are available for the YouTube Reporting API and YouTube Analytics API. You can download these code samples from the java folder of the YouTube APIs code sample repository on GitHub.

Bulk reports

Retrieve reports

This sample demonstrates how to retrieve reports created by a specific job. It calls the jobs.list method to retrieve reporting jobs. It then calls the reports.list method with the jobId parameter set to a specific job ID to retrieve reports created by that job. Finally, the sample prints out the download URL for each report.

Create a reporting job

This sample demonstrates how to create a reporting job. It calls the reportTypes.list method to retrieve a list of available report types. It then calls the jobs.create method to create a new reporting job.

Targeted query reports

Retrieve top 10 videos by view count

This sample calls the API's reports.query method to retrieve YouTube Analytics data. By default, the report retrieves the top 10 videos based on viewcounts, and it returns several metrics for those videos, sorting the results in reverse order by viewcount. By setting command line parameters, you can use the same code to retrieve other reports as well.
