It is Friday. And you have to get down on Friday.
How many views does RB's video Friday have on Youtube right now?
You can do this with Selenium.
disclaimer this is clearly just for fun, some sites frown on being scraped... :)
ytlink="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfVsfOSbJY0" from selenium import webdriver from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By import time driver = None try: cpath = "e:\\projects\\headless\\chromedriver.exe" driver = webdriver.Chrome(cpath) driver.get(ytlink) # how do we fix this next statement? time.sleep(5) cs_selector = "#count > yt-view-count-renderer > span.view-count.style-scope.yt-view-count-renderer" e = driver.find_element(By.CSS_SELECTOR,cs_selector) time.sleep(3) txt_views = print(e.text) finally: if driver is not None: driver.quit()
Have a great weekend!!!
