[BUG] - ERROR:root:Converting response to JSON failed response is below (probably empty)

See original GitHub issue

So yesterday my code worked fine, saved it and got to it today again. None of my programs using tiktokAPI are working. I am getting the same bug on all of them.

A clear and concise description of what the bug is.

Please insert the code that is throwing errors or is giving you weird unexpected results.

from TikTokApi import TikTokApi
api = TikTokApi.get_instance()

TikTokUserName = "danielhow01"
results = 500

UserLikedVideos = api.userLikedbyUsername(username=TikTokUserName, count=results)

for tiktok in UserLikedVideos:  
    Like_File = open("linksToLikedVideos.json", "a")
    idOfLikedVideo = tiktok['id']
    usernameOfLikedVideo = tiktok['author']['uniqueId']
    Like_File.write("\n" + usernameOfLikedVideo + "/video/" + idOfLikedVideo)


Expected behavior

Well, the ID and username of 500 liked videos from a user are writen to a file. I added “” etc to make it a link.

Error Trace (if any)

Put the error trace below if there’s any error thrown.

ERROR:root:Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)

    raise JSONDecodeError("Expecting value", s, err.value) from None
json.decoder.JSONDecodeError: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

  File "C:/Users/Robin/Desktop/PyCharmProjects/TikTokV2/Get TikTok by", line 7, in <module>
    test = api.getTikTokById(id = Id, language='en', proxy=None)        # test is een dict

    return self.getData(url=api_url, **kwargs)
  File "C:\Users\Robin\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\lib\site-packages\TikTokApi\", line 169, in getData
    raise Exception("Invalid Response")
Exception: Invalid Response

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: Windows 10
  • TikTokApi Version 3.7.7

Additional context Downloaded it yesterday, excuse me for my bad english and code. I am not a pro.

Is this some sort of TikTok banned me for accessing there info to much to quick?
