    Hello BHW,

    I've stumbled upon this thread:
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/436365-giveaway-small-custom-bots-source-code.html
    And I've decided to both thank the OP by creating one of the request for him and also gain some experience and also to help the BHW community with another free tool. Also I wanted to celabrate my 100th+ Post and my Jr.Vip upgrade :)

    Before I introduce the tool let me be clear about it - This bot is not claiming to be the best at what it's doing by any means, furthermore almost every decent YT all in one bot has this feature built-in, and on top of that it's multithreaded, and this one is not.

    SO IF you like the bot - use it, if not, click on the back button or "X" on the current tab :)

    Main ScreenShot:

    Usage:
    Pretty stright forward, but let's do a simple steb by step guide:
    0) Scrape some videos off YouTube with Scrapebox OR whichever scraper you're using ... :D

    1) Click on "Load Videos" and load them from a text file which has the full url address to the videos, e.g.:
    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DeeGhV6wAzhg
    http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DeFQrZd37110
    http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DEh_INmqimgo
    http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DeL0xgWe6z9s
    http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DfQA57y6S2Qk
    http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DFQDQnLHBcqs
    2) Set the "Delay" in seconds between each request - if you're going to scrape a lot of videos I suggest you to use something between 5-10 seconds. For under 50 videos, you can safely use the default opition which is zero seconds.

    3) Select the folder you want the output file (which is named ALWAYS "Scraped Video Info.csv") to be placed!
    NOTE:
    If you don't select that the file will be saved to the current directory where the "Youtube Video Info Scraper.exe" is located.

    4) Click on the "Scrape" button, and wait for the program to finish. If everything went the right way, you should see this:
    [​IMG]

    Just click "OK" and you're done!

    OUTPUT:
    The output is like this, and the info for each video is stored on new line:

    URL,Title,Description,Tags

    HINT: You can use this information directly with iMACROS as Datasource file ;)

    Other Notes:

    - This program takes somewhere between 1-3 seconds to scrape and save the info to the CSV file. Which means with delay of 5 seconds the whole operation for one video will be performed for 6-8 seconds. Simple math tells us that for 100 videos you'll need 13 minutes in the worst case to finish.
    - If you select the same directory for each scrape, the new info will be APPENDED to the old "Scraped Video Info.csv", if you don't want that, just RENAME/Move the file to another directory.

    I tested your program and using a limited list of videos (the list you gave) I didn't need a delay at all. All got scraped within notime! So, you did a good job. I prefer however to paste my lists into textboxes rather than having to edit a file..

    Hey,

    Thanks for the input FLL! Glad you liked it.

    Regarding the Listbox/Textbox thing - I thought since this is not scraping the video ULRs but the info from ALREADY scraped videos, then the vids will be already in a txt file. I guess my logic is not 100% correct, but it's not that hard to create a txt file with the videos anyway.

    C'on people, few hundred views and few 10's downloads and nobody wants to say anything ... ?

    I guess it's either REALLY good or REALLY BAD then :D

    Regards,
    Mr.Profit

    This looks really promising. I've been using TubeSpy - not too bad of a program.

    I'll check this out later when I get home from school. Keep it up man! I appreciate this. ^^
