YouTube Connector for Data Studio Running Slow

When trying to build out a dashboard in Data Studio with the youtube connector it is taking almost 30 seconds for any metric to be displayed. I have reconnected the connector and refreshed everything but it seems the connector is running very slow. Anyone else having this issue?  

  • Hi Helen,

    thanks for reaching out. Youtube API has quite unique structuring on the account hierarchy. This will increase the processing time for accounts with either multiple sub-accounts/channels or high amount of videos. We are actively looking for solutions to enhance the processing speed but with the current state of the underlying API, it may be unreachable.
