Big data - big problems

YouTube search API cannot select videos by location anymore. It is the response from support:

"Apologies for the lack of advanced warning and the loss of functionality; a change in the YouTube search index is preventing location-based searches from returning results.

Unfortunately, there is no quick-fix to account for this change. The last I heard we're looking at approximately four weeks before the necessary data to power location-based searches will return."

and later:

"Unfortunately, the teams responsible have revised their estimates for when they can get this working again, and they're longer than initially thought. I don't have an exact date to share at this point, but it will not be the mid-April timeframe we initially communicated. Apologies for the continued inconvenienced."
