YouTube API call frequency...


I'm using Coldfusion to make calls to YouTube. I'm pulling the info just fine using a manual button click process but I would like to get some feedback on the frequency of calls that I can make. Does anybody else have experience with YouTube and making calls to it? I'm wanting to <cfloop> through 20 calls or setup a cfscheduler and check every 2 minutes until all 20 calls are complete.

Thanks for any other ideas or feedback,

From what i've seen, there doesn't seem to be any published hard limit.


All you probably need to do is parse your results for the overlimit message and halt your loop for 10 minutes. Can't imagine 20 calls would be an issue.
