Pafy – Checking CC License for each item of Playlist

In this article we will see how we check the CC license of each item of playlist in pafy. Pafy is a python library to download YouTube content and retrieve metadata. Pafy object is the object which contains all the information about the given video. A playlist in YouTube is a list, or group, of videos that plays in order, one video after the other. CC stands for Closed Caption, it’s there just to toggle between subtitles, If you turn it on the subtitles(closed captions to be more precise) either submitted by the author of the video or generated by speech recognition starts displaying along with the video.

We can get the playlist from youtube in pafy with the help of get_playlist method, below is the command given to do this

 pafy.get_playlist(url)

The playlist url should exist on youtube as it get the information of those videos which are present on the youtube. YouTube is an American online video-sharing platform.

Steps for implementation
1. Import the pafy module
2. Get the playlist with the help of URL of playlist
3. Return play list work as dictionary so use ‘items’ as key with the return playlist
4. Store the result in variable and from the items select the single item
5. With the single item use ‘playlist_meta’ key with it to get the meta data
6. With the meta data use ‘cc_license’ key this will return duration for given item

Below is the implementation

# getting playlist
playlist = pafy.get_playlist(url)
  
# getting playlist items
items = playlist["items"]
  
# selecting single item
item = items[1]
  
# getting pafy object
i_pafy = item['pafy']
      
# getting meta data
metadata = item['playlist_meta']
  
  
# checking cc license of item
value = metadata['cc_license']
  
# printing value
print("Has CC License : " + str(value))
