    Yes, scrapebox and the following footprint:

    [your keyword] site:youtube.com OR site:dailymotion.com OR site:metacafe.com

    replace [your keyword] with whatever your keyword is. Feel free to add or remove video hosting websites as you see fit.

    SB you can do this. But I wish there was a program that would allow me to scrape URL's with a filter feature to only scrape videos with over XXX amount of views, etc. Anyone know of one? or want to group buy to have someone on BHW here create one?

    Try this footprint in SB: site:youtube.com keyword "100..10000000 views"

    Adjust the numbers as per your requirement.

    Did you try the search string? I bet you didn't!

    .. in the search string means a range of certain number.

    so 1000..1000000 will search for numbers ranging from 1000 to 1000000, meaning it will include numbers like 534,345

    I know it's not perfect but, I can assure you it is more accurate than your suggestion of more pr means more views..

    Anyways you can also add inurl:"watch?v=" so it will give you 99% video urls and dont include channel and user page.

    You can also add -"Comments are disabled" so you will only get videos open for comment..

    So anyways, you can try this:

    site:youtube.com "keyword" "3000..10000000 views" inurl:"watch?v=" -"Comments are disabled"
