Because of the new limitations at Google developers platform, search requests for YouTube videos now have to be signed with a personal user key.

You need to obtain your own Google API key in order to resume your existing YouTube feeds or to be able to generate new YouTube feeds.

You can use “Default settings” to automatically add your new API key to the existing YouTube feeds, no need to regenerate them or edit each feed manually.

We have added a new option to YouTube Feeds generator. Now you can choose a language preference for your videos. This option is usually used when you search for videos by keywords.

Language preference parameter allows to return search results that are most relevant to a specified language. 

You can use Edit option in Feeds Box to add this new filter to your existing YouTube feeds.

Amazon Feeds generator update

Just recently Amazon has updated its developers documentation. According to this update, only personal keys generated and saved under Product Advertizing API section of your Amazon affiliate account are valid.

Personal keys saved under AWS are no longer supported. You can migrate your AWS keys to Product Advertizing API if you haven’t done so before. Migration guide

We also remind you about Amazon limitations introduced earlier. You can temporary loose access to Product Advertising API if you don’t have referring sales for a consecutive 30-day period. Because of this your Amazon feeds can become inactive.
