melezorus34202643dBtw, on free tier you get 10k quota credits per day (max 10k)
Search api costs mf'ing 100 + filterCosts,
Checking an existence of a channel costs 1 + snippetCost
Getting their uploads playlist is another 1 + playlistCost
(While yes, it's possible to get channel details and playlists for 1 + snippetCost + playlistCost , I don't want to waste extra creds for a typo in the confirmation message.)

amoux14742dI have used the ”legit” YT data API in the past for text data, but after getting hit with ugly fees, I put together a scraper for mining any number of comments for free. It has been working for me for two years with no updates to the code (thank god). Last time I tested its limits - it scraped all UnboxTherapy’s channel with no issues lol.
