The ultimate dirty API Client for the internal YouTube API (Innertube API) with a big and growing coverage of actions and endpoints
- Video information and statistics fetching
- Playlist information and videos
- Search functions (with type filters)
- Like & subscriptions API coverage (videos, channels, playlists)
- Comment API coverage (partial, only for videos)
- Simple User Authentication using OAuth2 (allows Private Videos) *1
- Built on one of the latest versions
- Typescript types (for most things)
- Support for a wide variety of plattforms, due to optional adapter support for HTTP fetching and storage access
*1 This does not require an API Key. It uses extracted keys from the YouTube TV App.
I will do my best to keep up the work on this project, any pull requests or contributions in any way (e.g feature suggestions) are welcome.
