Youtube Channel Analysis


In this project, we are going to analyse the top Youtube channel 'T-Series' using Python. First, we'll retreive videos information from this channel using Youtube Data API and Python. Then we'll create the dataset of this information using JSON and Pandas. Now, We'll analyse this dataset using Python analysis techniques and libraries ( Pandas, Matplotlib, Seaborn, etc. ) learned in Data Analysis with Python: Zero to Pandas course. I highly recommend this course if you're a beginner in this field.

How to run the code

This is an executable Jupyter notebook hosted on Jovian.ml, a platform for sharing data science projects. You can run and experiment with the code in a couple of ways: using free online resources (recommended) or on your own computer.

Option 1: Running using free online resources (1-click, recommended)

The easiest way to start executing this notebook is to click the "Run" button at the top of this page, and select "Run on Binder". This will run the notebook on mybinder.org, a free online service for running Jupyter notebooks. You can also select "Run on Colab" or "Run on Kaggle".

Option 2: Running on your computer locally
  1. Install Conda by following these instructions. Add Conda binaries to your system PATH, so you can use the conda command on your terminal.

  2. Create a Conda environment and install the required libraries by running these commands on the terminal:

conda create -n zerotopandas -y python=3.8 
conda activate zerotopandas
pip install jovian jupyter numpy pandas matplotlib seaborn opendatasets --upgrade
  1. Press the "Clone" button above to copy the command for downloading the notebook, and run it on the terminal. This will create a new directory and download the notebook. The command will look something like this:
jovian clone notebook-owner/notebook-id
  1. Enter the newly created directory using cd directory-name and start the Jupyter notebook.
jupyter notebook

You can now access Jupyter's web interface by clicking the link that shows up on the terminal or by visiting http://localhost:8888 on your browser. Click on the notebook file (it has a .ipynb extension) to open it.

Downloading the Dataset

We're going to gather some data from T-Series Youtube channel using Youtube Data API, JSON and Python. We'll save and export this data in csv file using Pandas.

Let's begin by importing the required libraries

# Importing Pandas library for saving data in a dataframe and exporting it in csv file
import pandas as pd

# Importing requests, it's a Python HTTP library for making HTTP requests
import requests

# Importing JSON library to save retrieved data in json format
import json
