YouTube Video Search Tutorial

I am working through a course Projects in JavaScript and JQuery (published in 10/2014) as part of my learning more about how to apply JavaScript to actual projects. The third project in this course is a Search feature using the YouTube Data API (V3). I am getting an error that I can’t figure out how to resolve: “Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https: // www.googleapis .com/youtube/v3/search?part=snippet%2C+id&q=cats&type=video&key=*****my API key was entered here ***** . (Reason: CORS request did not succeed).”.

My search function is as follows:

// the search function
function search() {
	// clear results
	// get form input
	q = $('#query').val();
	// run GET request on API
		"", {
			part: 'snippet, id',
			q: q,
			type: 'video',
			key: '***** my API key was entered here *****'}, 
			function(data) {
				let nextPageToken = data.nextPageToken;
				let prevPageToken = data.prevPageToken;

I’m pretty sure I got and used the correct API key.

I have asked for help in the Q&A section of the course, but have not yet received a response, and I would really like to finish off this project and move on. What is causing this error, and how can I fix it?
