    I have a large list of youtube videos I want to check through and return the number of comments they have.

    I can easily use the custom grabber in Scrapebox to grab the amount of views, but can't seem to do it for number of comments.

    Any ideas?

    Does it give you an error or ? Its possible that the comments section loads via a script and so its not part of the page that scrapebox can see.

    If I load a youtube video with javascript off, in my browser, then the comments section never loads. Scrapebox uses raw sockets and threads, these do not support javascript. So you could try to see if there is a page that loads just the comments, I recall once upon day this was so, but you had to append the video ID to a url, so you would have to strip all the video ids out, append them to a url, grab the comment count and then track that back to the original video.
