YouTube URL Scraper - Suggestions?

Hello All,

I know there are scrapers that allow you to download videos/mp3s based off a keyword, but I'm looking for something that will allow me to download all the video URLs on one single channel. Again, I don't need to download the videos or mp3s, just the URLs that are on the channel.

Any suggestions?

    If it was me I'd just pay a developer. Depending on how badly you need such a tool.

    I had a developer automate about 8 different tasks that I needed for YT. It saves me a ton of time. Unfortunately it doesn't do what you ask but I'm sure someone could code you an app for $20-$40 if you shop around.

    I made a vb.net video URL scraper a while back that will scrape the latest 30 video URLs, it's rough but it works. It only does one thing (video URLs).

    If there is a footprint for a YouTube channel, I'm sure Scrapebox could do it.

      The channel page source code doesn't show the full URL path so I used /watch?v= as the footprint, then went back & added the domain to the front of the partial video URL (ex: hxxp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxxx) before the URL is added to the finished URL textbox.

      Those channel pages are also dynamic (Load more), they don't list all the videos in the channel page HTML source code, that's the reason I left it at 30 video URLs.

      ....Thanks for your suggestions (everyone).

      I'll probably have to do what Red suggests. I really only want to scrape my own channel video URLs. I also have Scrapebox and it won't scrape all the URLs either -- even using a custom string from my channel and some of the text such as....
      site:youtube.com/user/channelname "text in every one of my videos"
      Not sure Yukon's script would work either as I need all the URLs from the channel not just the latest 30. I have channels that literally have several hundred, some even have several thousand videos, so it would also take too long to do manually.

      This thread on StackOverflow talks about creating a script (as Red suggested), but the script has to loop because it will only show 50 results at a time, then it would have to parse the info into a CSV file or something. This is something outside my technical capabilities.

      Might have to try out a dude on Fiverr I found.

    Fast Traffic Sniper has a Youtube scraper. I don't know about specific channels but it scrape for keywords, so I guess if your channel is a keyword it would work. Send me some info and I'll try it out for you before you buy if you want. I can email you the results.

    I looked at the YT API, on-page (Channel page) & a few YT feeds, the best I can see is your maxed out at 50 URLs (API).

    The above code work fine and you can search what you want on youtube. In Google SERP, you can download all the result in XLS Format.
