extract the username and the url and print it using Python 3 and BeautifulSoup 4

using python 3 and BeautifulSoup 4
my code when run returns a big list like the txt below
but 100 times more i have only posted one as an example

urls = ['https://example.com']
for url in urls:
    response = requests.get(url)
    soup = BeautifulSoup(response.content, "html.parser")
    for text in soup.find_all(text= True):

code above returns

{"users":{"userId":222222222,"username":"some_name","hlsPreviewUrl":"https://example.com/322/example-origin-live/some_name-322-33babf1b-6030-479a-ac41-b90bd8313678_aac/playlist.m3u8 }

I see that "text" is basically a dictionary. So you can convert the object type from str to dict; loop over the keys and print only the key-value pairs you need.
