For some reason, I'm having an issue downloading videos.

When I went to check to see how many requests I made (thinking I may have exceeded a monthly limit or something), I saw the following:

You have used 6471 requests in the last hour for API Path '/videos' ...a tad bit gluttonous don't you think? (reset in -0 minutes)

Your request rate is fine

As far as I'm aware, no video was posted to the site until about 7 hours ago (Abby's 100 Baby Challenge) which I didn't download. Is there a way I can see where my API key is being used or can I reset it in the event it may have been snagged (not sure why it would be, but okay...)?

@majorlinux I regenerated your API key and blocked the other one that was being misused. Let me know if things work out now for you.

I'm still getting a 403 Forbidden when trying to download via wget.

When clicking on the video via a browser, I get the following:

Based on your subscription level, this content is unavailable

I'm also seeing the same error when trying to download videos, despite:

You have used 3 requests in the last hour for API Path '/videos' (reset in 45 minutes)

Your request rate is fine

My little CLI app that downloads GB videos has been failing with 403's since 00:39 UK time (15:39 PST, I think?)

Edit: 6 hours later it's working again :)
