I need help with creating a youtube API call

Hello, I am trying to check if a user is subscribed to a channel.

I found this example:
https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/subscriptions/?part=snippet%2CcontentDetails&forChannelId=[CHANNEL ID HERE]&mine=true

Now to make this an api call, I have had trouble with that. I tried to learn from a youtube plugin (that wont work as far as I know in my case) This did not work and I keept getting errors.

Would a butieful person here at the forums be able to assist me?

Mine (done ages ago) looks like this …

Can you show whats above that? That’s what I have trouble with

Doesn’t this require oauth or something?

It probably does, for added security, but the above screenshots are from a proof of concept that I did a while back, so I didn’t require oauth.

OAuth is authenticating on behalf of the User’s account.
API token is authenticating as the app’s (or app owner) account.

OAuth was required it said so I am confused.

However I want the user to login with their account then it to check if they are subscibed to a spesefic channel. The api thing are so confusing and I am used to the simple ones.

This is the error I am getting:

This is my setup:

Hey @ohbergan,

While state is recommended by Google, it is not mandatory. Are you able to connect without it just to troubleshoot?

So happy, visitors can now use oauth!
Thanks for everyones help.
