Has anyone had a situation where the Google API picking up upload time given you a result that isn’t true?
This is the return from the API for today’s video that was uploaded. The thing is, I’m in Missouri (Central Daylight Time) and it’s currently 20:40. The originator is in Florida so we’re dealing with a 1 hour difference.
This individual releases videos around 3, maybe 5 at most. Technically, when I first ran my code, this video hasn’t been released yet. So it’s adding about 6 hours to the time.
Can I assume it’s using some odd timezone?
The timestamp returned by Google API is in
UTC timezone (Denotes with the
Z at the back of the string):
After a bit of conversion, this is equivalent to
2023-04-29 16:10:04 of your timezone (CT / UTC-5), which should match your expectation of the "adding 6 hours to the time"
