Quickly construct a custom power hour video connecting to your Spotify account. Perfect to get any Friday or Saturday night started.

Goal of this work

To build a playlist connected with Spotify and quickly produce a custom power hour video.

Power hour video is compilation of music videos played for one-minute, followed by everyone taking a shot of beer.


We used the Spotify and Youtube APIs to create playlists and fecth Youtube URLs for the song music video.

We used React and Material-UI to build our responsive web app.

We used Flask to host the web app and serve an API to generate Spotify playlists and fetch Youtube URLs.
