Looks like playlists are limited to 200 items; does that apply to the playlist containing the watched clips, too? Can’t test this myself right now because I disabled my YouTube history :-)
Well my "Watch history" "playlist" is at least 574 items (Clicked more a few times and then counted with jQuery) so that limitation doesn't seem to apply for this special list :)
In the new API version you would use the playlistItems endpoint to fetch the content of the "Watch history" playlist (the one available at https://www.youtube.com/feed/history).

This could be made into an open source effort. Unfortunately I'm not sure if I'm comfortable enough with mobile app dev to help get such a thing started. But if you are looking to expand your userbase an app is sure to draw quite some attention. A possible downside is that mobile app users are pretty entitled when it comes to having the full set of features available in-app. This sense of entitlement could in worst case lead to bad reviews on the app stores due to complains of missing features. But given the number of votes this has now I'd say there's more to gain from it than lose.
Simple proposal for a minimal feature-set for a first version mobile app:
- List buckets and their latest events
- Add/edit/delete events
- Be able to quickly fill event form from history to speed up logging
I think the webapp should be first priority, but a app could be a very powerful tool to gain new users. As always: keep up the awesome work Eric!
