    Hey.

    So what I want to do is extract the usernames from everybody that has commented on a certain video.

    Any tools out there have this feature?

    Thx

    Still looking. I built the Imacros script below, that does a half decent job of this, but would love to have something more automated

    Code:
    VERSION BUILD=6900210       
    FILTER TYPE=IMAGES STATUS=ON
    SET !REPLAYSPEED FAST
    SET !EXTRACT_TEST_POPUP NO
    SET !TIMEOUT 30
    ONERRORDIALOG BUTTON=YES CONTINUE=YES
    ONSECURITYDIALOG BUTTON=NO CONTINUE=YES
    ONDIALOG POS=1 BUTTON=NO
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES       
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=2 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=3 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=4 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=5 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=6 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=7 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=8 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=9 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=10 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv 
    TAG POS=11 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:yt-user-name<SP>&&TXT:*&&HREF:http://www.youtube.com/user/* EXTRACT=TXT  
    SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=extract.csv
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Next<SP>ยป

    Edit: I honestly tried to give you a lengthy explanation inside this thread, but it wouldn't let me - SO, I put it on pastehtml, you can view my response below. If you don't understand what I'm talking about, I don't know what to tell you.
