Scrape comments from different videos

#1

Hi! I have in excel a list with different videos ID's of YouTube, and I would like to know if there's any way for extracting all the comments from the different videos. I know how to do it one by one, but I was wondering if it can be done automatically.

Hi! This is something that is currently not done in a simple manner. Will try to add support in next release. However, you have a few options:

  1. Using Transpose argument in Dump. Extract only the Ids of the comments and have each id dumped horizontally for each row. Then compile these to a new list and run additional formulas to extract metadata.
  2. If you have any experience with VBA, I recommend the Evaluate() function that captures an array from an Seotools formula.
