This snippet below is the base example for adding 1 video but do I have to do multiple requests if I wanted to add two videos? Maybe that's how the accurately track quotas but I wanted to double check.

POST {base_URL}/playlistItems?part=snippet
  Request body:
    'snippet': {
      'playlistId': '{PLAYLIST_ID}', 
      'resourceId': {
          'kind': 'youtube#video',
          'videoId': '{VIDEO_ID}'
     'position': 0

    The youtube api allows to perform all the actions a user can do on the regular youtube website, including adding and deleting one playlist resource at at time.

    So if you want to add multiple items to a playlist, all you can do is to add one after another...
