Project Description

In this project, we'll integrate the YouTube Data API into a React application. The application will allow users to search for videos, play videos, comment, and rate videos. It will also allow users to search for videos similar to a particular video.

We'll add user authorization to the application to interact with the YouTube data and access certain endpoints of the YouTube Data API. The authorization will be done with OAuth 2.0 authentication, where users will grant the application permission to access their Google account's YouTube data. We will learn to integrate different endpoints of the API and to add YouTube functionality in a React application. The final product will provide users with a user-friendly interface for searching, watching, commenting, rating videos, and discovering related content.

The final layout of the application will look like the following:
