Chapter: Binary data from services (and elsewhere)
Lecture: Binary data from services introduction
0:02 We've worked with a number of the text data types.
0:07 Now, let's talk about binary data, so again we are going to use requests,
0:10 but this time we are going to focus on downloading and saving,
0:14 or even a memory processing binary data,
0:17 this could be things like zip files, it could be images or a whole bunch of stuff,
0:23 In the demo, we are going to is actually mp3 files,
0:26 those are fairly large binary files that we can work with.
0:29 So a lot of things with requests are really straightforward,
0:32 this one is a little less straightforward,
0:34 but not too bad once you see a couple of techniques
0:37 that will make this much easier.
