    Are there any crawlers for Youtube out there that extract Facebook links from the videos description? If so can you point me in that direction or if not, how much would it cost to get one programmed?

    If not a crawler, a plugin for Firefox or Chrome that would do such thing?

    What I need doing:

    I need the said script to load certain type of videos from Youtube and extract the Facebook links from its description and save the whole profile URL link.

    Currently I do it all manually and can get around 2,500 per day (total of around 50,000 links so far). However Id love to leave my machine on 24/7 and have it done mostly automatically.

    Edit:
    Maybe a plugin/script that loads the Youtube video page however only shows the Facebook link?

    If I can get such crawler/plugin I will release my list of the links I have so far acquired (I will need to recount but around 50,000).

    This API here already does this but it's rather manual. I just need it to let the computer run, it gets the "facebookurl/username" and save it to a file either on the web or better yet on my machine in a text file.
