Youtube Data Api - Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setApiKey' of undefined

I search music with youtube data api. I use javascript and jquery and i have a problem.
Here is my code

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="<?php echo SITE_PUBLIC; ?>/bootstrap-3.2.0/dist/js/bootstrap.js"></script>
<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/client.js?onload=googleApiClientReady"></script>

<script>
function keyWordsearch(){
    gapi.client.setApiKey('myapikey');
    gapi.client.load('youtube', 'v3', function() {
            data = jQuery.parseJSON( '{ "data": [{"name":"eminem"},{"name":"shakira"}] }' );
            $.each(data["data"], function( index, value ) {
                makeRequest(value["name"]);
            });

    });
    }
    function makeRequest(q) {
        var request = gapi.client.youtube.search.list({
                q: q,
                part: 'snippet', 
                maxResults: 10
        });
        request.execute(function(response)  {                                                                                    
                $('#results').empty()
                var srchItems = response.result.items;                      
                $.each(srchItems, function(index, item) {
                vidTitle = item.snippet.title;  
                vidThumburl =  item.snippet.thumbnails.default.url;                 
                vidThumbimg = '<pre><img id="thumb" src="'+vidThumburl+'" alt="No  Image Available." style="width:204px;height:128px"></pre>';                   

                $('#results').append('<pre>' + vidTitle + vidThumbimg +  '</pre>');                      
        })  
    })  
}   
keyWordsearch();
</script>

This code not working. Chrome console say "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setApiKey' of undefined". But this code is working:

keyWordsearch() to

$(document).click(function(){
        keyWordsearch()
})

I do not understand this issue. Thanks in advance

Looks like, you haven't load the javascript library. That's why it can't find the reference. You can add it like:

<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/client.js?onload=handleClientLoad"></script>
Answer

You can specify an initial function while calling the API like this: client.js?onload=init (see my example below). Besides no need of a doucument.ready() wrapper. I'm not sure why it works with your API key on my local machine but I guess it's some kind of magic that checks if the site is availible to the public - if true the referrer entries in your google account will get important - correct me on that if somebody knows whats exactly happening here.

My code:

<!DOCTYPE html>

  <head>
    <meta charset=utf-8 />
    <title></title>

    <!--[if IE]><script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script><![endif]-->

    <script type="text/javascript">

      function makeRequest(q) {
        var request = gapi.client.youtube.search.list({
          q: q,
          part: 'snippet',
          maxResults: 3
        });

        request.execute(function(response) {
          $('#results').empty();
          var resultItems = response.result.items;
          $.each(resultItems, function(index, item) {
            vidTitle = item.snippet.title;
            vidThumburl =  item.snippet.thumbnails.default.url;
            vidThumbimg = '<pre><img id="thumb" src="'+vidThumburl+'" alt="No  Image Available." style="width:204px;height:128px"></pre>';
            $('#results').append('<pre>' + vidTitle + vidThumbimg +  '</pre>');
          });
        });
      }

      function init() {
        gapi.client.setApiKey('AIzaSyCWzGO9Vo1eYOW4R4ooPdoFLmNk6zkc0Jw');
        gapi.client.load('youtube', 'v3', function() {
          data = jQuery.parseJSON( '{ "data": [{"name":"orsons"}] }' );
          $.each(data["data"], function(index, value) {
            makeRequest(value["name"]);
          });
        });
      }

Answer

In addition to all the answers which explain that you must specify and provide a callback function for the Google API client <script> loading line, I'd like to point out that it seems that the onload parameter will never run the specified function (at least in Chrome) when you load the Google API client.js from a local file (even though you are serving the HTML page via a webserver and not loading it from the file-system, which apparently seemed to be the only gotcha with the Google API JS client...).

e.g.:

<script src="/lib/js/client.js?onload=handleClientLoad"></script>

Although client.js will be loaded, this will never launch the handleClientLoad function when it's finished loading. I thought it would be useful to point this out, as this was a really frustrating thing to debug.

Hope this helps.

Answer
<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/client.js?onload=handleClientLoad"></script>

This MUST be called at the end, or at least after you define your method "handleClientLoad". This is its callback, and only after it was called - it means google api is ready. This is why you get gapi.client is null.

For the fun of it, you can use a timeout of a few seconds before using gapi.client and see it is not null anymore.
