Resolved: Youtube scraping is not doable with BS

For the data scraping homework it was asked to scrape youtube data. However it seems that BS is not the right tool given that youtube renders requests via javascript.

Could you correct me if I am wrong..?

So, for those who are also interested, you may use request-html package to be able to scrap javascript renders! The last section of Data scraping basics is dedicated to the aforementioned package.

Good luck!
