    Basically i'm looking to mine data from YT channels and other video sites.

    Looking for Metrics like:

    UVs
    Peak times/hours of day visitors view their vids
    Engagement
    Geo/Locale
    Referring link
    etc.

    Compete.com?

    The short answer is No, and you're unlikely to find a tool with that level of data as most of that stuff is handled internally on the server or via their private statistics software.

    Compete and Alexa and similar tools can give you broad metrics on some of that stuff, but nothing as refined as you're talking about.

    -------------------------

    Not possible via 3rd party software --> UVs

    Not possible via 3rd party software --> Peak times/hours of day visitors view their vids

    Possible w/ custom scraper to some degree such as # of comments, however not possible for things like average view length and ad click through rates or replays per person --> Engagement

    Youtube does now have a maps feature I think requires custom scraper and tool to interpret the maps --> Geo/Locale

    Not possible via 3rd party software, you could get subdomain/domain level data to some degree, but not video or channel specific --> Referring link
