Here’s a detailed suggestion on how to approach your scenario.
Firstly, you’ll need to create an input field on your webpage where users can enter a YouTube video ID. This input field can be either a text box or a drop-down list, depending on how you want your users to enter the data.
To do this, you can use the YouTube Data API, which allows you to retrieve information about YouTube videos, channels, and playlists. You’ll need to first authenticate your API requests using an API key and then make a GET request to the API endpoint, passing the video ID as a parameter.
After receiving the data from the API, you can parse the JSON response and populate the relevant fields on your webpage with the received data. These fields can be title, description, view count, likes, dislikes, etc. which are available in the API response.
