    Are there any good tools to quickly scrape YT video IDs for a given list of keywords? It needs to scrape 4000 IDs per keyword. 1000 top rated videos, 1000 most viewed videos, 1000 recently uploaded videos and 1000 most relevant videos. Video IDs are just this: yhS9LnDoo_w

    Would it be difficult to make a scraper that would do this?

    Tube Blaster Pro went down a while back and I can't seem to find any copies of it. Do you know where I can get it?

    I found an old version of tube blaster that does this but it keep on screwing up so I'll need to write a quick mouse macro so that it would click a bunch of buttons over and over again. Kinda backwards but it's the only way for now.

    That would be awesome!

    -edit-

    Got it working. All good :) Thanks guys.
