I am having a little trouble with a google script which I found on github. My Version of the Script: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Jj1Sx0mvfCKfYFcfX4karP9ztPgkyURj3pBvOExsljQ

Original Script: https://github.com/Elijas/auto-youtube-subscription-playlist-2

What this script does:

You add the channel ID which you have subscribed to on youtube to a google spreadsheet and reference them to the Playlist ID you want new videos to be added. I have set a time driven trigger so the script checks every 2 hours for newly uploaded videos):

What my issue is:

Two days ago the script stopped working as intended. Instead of just adding newly uploaded videos since the last timestamp in the spreadsheet, it started adding ALL videos from a channel to my playlists.
I guess google made some changes to an involved API, but I am simply lacking the skills to find out what the problem is.

I really need help and hope someone can fix it.

To author: Unfortunately, it seems that the Youtube itself is not working properly at the moment, therefore the problem might not lie in the code itself.

To others: I still recommend trying coming up with a solution, as there still might be some ways of fixing this.

Do you have a link somewhere? I cannot find anything on google that YT is broken. And its quite a while ago meanwhile =\
