how can I fix it?

  • This isn't really an answer to your question, but some information you may find useful: DevDemon has been acquired by Vector Media Group (makers of CartThrob). Their announcement says that they're going to examine all EE plugins with an eye toward finishing porting them to 3.0. This particular plugin will possibly also be fixed or upgraded at that time.) To get more help with your issue, can you please add which version of EE you're using, and which version of the plugin you're using, to your original question? Also, can you search for ANY videos? That looks like a YT "video deleted" message.

(I'm with Vector; we're the new owners of DevDemon.)

This error was related to the transfer of DevDemon assets from the old owners over to us. We're now (2017-02-15) released Channel Videos v3.2.1 with a new API key which fixes the issue: http://www.devdemon.com/expressionengine-addons/channel-videos

  • Do you have an ETA of when this will be fixed? Thanks!

If you don't feel like waiting on DevDemon to make a patch you can create your own youtube API key and replace the key that is in pbf.min.js with your own key. That fixed it for me.

  • Hi, that sounds great, but I cannot find where to change the api key in pbf.min.js Can you help me? Commented Feb 11, 2017 at 12:09

    Search for this string: AIzaSyCaVU3uYehPlaQQqgIo66N9FCZhRN1kbNg. That's what you'll want to replace.

  • I installed the updated version and now it works. Thank you! Commented Mar 2, 2017 at 12:16

I updated CV to the latest (3.2.1) on EE 2.11.7. I am getting the following console errors:

GET https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/search?q=bible&maxResults=10&type=video&part=snippet&key=AIzaSyCaVU3uYehPlaQQqgIo66N9FCZhRN1kbNg 403 ()

Replacing the API code to our own still seems to call the AIzaSyCaVU3uYehPlaQQqgIo66N9FCZhRN1kbNg API key. What could be happening?
