How to Get List of YouTube Channel Videos using YouTube API?

I’ve got 150+ videos on @SupeRails Youtube channel, and now I want to list them on my own superails.com website.

I could copypaste the information manually, but that would take ages.

I could use web scraping, but what's the point, if there is an easy to use Youtube API?

In this episode we will:
✅ Learn basics of using Google Cloud Console ☁️
✅ Enable and use Youtube API
✅ LIST videos from ANY channel
✅ Get detailed info for any particular video
✅ Paginate API results
✅ Store results in our local database 💾
✅ Use ActiveJob to do it all async
