    Youtubei

    Youtubei is made to replace my other library scrape-yt. Instead of scrapping data from Youtube page, youtubei fetches data by sending a request directly to https://www.youtube.com/youtubei/v1, which should be faster and provide more reliable result.

    Requires Node >= 16

    Installation

    npm i youtubei
    

    Example

    const { Client } = require("youtubei");
    // or for TS / ES6
    import { Client } from "youtubei";
    
    const youtube = new Client();
    
    const run = async () => {
    	const videos = await youtube.search("Never gonna give you up", {
    		type: "video", // video | playlist | channel | all
    	});
    
    	console.log(videos.items.length); // 20
    	const nextVideos = await videos.next(); // load next page
    	console.log(nextVideos.length); // 18-20, inconsistent next videos count from youtube
    	console.log(videos.items.length); // 38 - 40

    	console.log(playlist.videos.items.length); // first 100 videos;
    	let newVideos = await playlist.videos.next(); // load next 100 videos
    	console.log(playlist.videos.items.length); // 200 videos;
    	await playlist.videos.next(0); // load the rest videos in the playlist
