YouTube Downloader

 

A scraping tool specifically designed to grab metrics from YouTube.

Recently added as a new feature of ScrapeBox, the YouTube Downloader allows you to scrape the following data from any publicly available video:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Duration
  • View Count
  • Likes
  • Dislikes
  • Published Date
  • Video Genre
  • Video Quality
  • Audio Quality
  • Video ID
  • Top Comments

Once you've allocated a time period to harvest videos from, the interface offers a number of filter options to refine the cohort of videos you want to extract data from:

When you are happy with your data, it can be exported in xlsx, and the videos themselves can also be downloaded in mp4. For users with slower brandwiths, the Downloader has a particularly useful addon that allows videos to be downloaded in smaller chunks and then merged back into a single file. Additionally, you can filter which videos you want to download based on their size and audio/video quality.
