Title says it all, the search API is absolutely abysmal and every time I search a video I end up having to go to YouTube and search there to find it. It seems like the current API separates each word by individual tags and searches based on tag popularity instead of phrases.
Thanks a lot for your feedback. You are right the search function is limited at the moment. There is work in progress to improve it but it might take a few more weeks until it can be rolled out.
