    I'm looking to export all videos from a specific user (hama4free). He's got more than 1600 videos from his neighborhood in Syria, with an open license. There are several people documenting in these areas, some have passed away, so I'd like to back up their videos.

    So, are there any ways to bulk export youtube videos? Individually, it's easy, but obviously the sheer number of videos makes that a difficult task to outsource.

    I can do it for you using Mass Video Blaster.
    Videos will have numbers for the title (i.e. 156122.flv).
    Don't know if that's a problem.

    If you have a hosting account you can create FTP access so I can upload the vids there.

    PM me when you want me to do it because I'm not monitoring all the threads where I wrote something ;)

    Edit: MVB shows 968 videos so that is what I can scrape.

    That would actually be a problem - I really need the titles at least to be available, if not the descriptions as well.

    Are there any solutions other than MVB?

    The only thing I can suggest is to get firefox and the plug-in named "ByTubed". It will allow you to enqueue pages at a time. It will save the file as the title of the video I should believe, don't know if it'll work for you but goodluck.

    Hi,

    I can do this for you.. Will save the videos in FLV, MP4 or 3GP format. Whatever you want, among these formats. I can retain the title of the video.

    Let me know if interested.

    Thanks

    Know what? Fuck you.
    Do your own videos.

    Sincerely.

    Record my own videos on the ground in Syria? Great idea! The original owner of that account died. Hence downloading their videos.

    English comprehension. It's a thing now.

    Yeah, I know what he meant. Thing is, I'm not a youtube marketer at all. I'm just trying to distribute the videos.
