Python to Extract URLs from a YouTube Playlist

YouTube has become a crucial part of my learning journey. Whenever I find a valuable video on YouTube, I save it to my library on the platform. However, as the list has grown over time, it has become difficult to search for a specific video that I want to revisit. To make it more efficient, I decided to create a Python script that extracts all the URLs from my YouTube playlist. Using this method, I can easily search for and access the videos I need without manually browsing through my library. The script has made my learning process much more organized, allowing me to focus on the valuable information presented in the videos.
