    Thanks for the replies, but wasn't really looking to start learning / playing around with YouTube's API. Was looking for an existing site, bot or method to get the channel ID from URL.

    May just end up making a simple Imacro script to click on the video username and copy the channel URL.

    OK had a think and created a custom data grabber with Scrapebox. If anybody has SB and wants a simple way to extract the channel ID's from alot of YouTube videos, post your replies here. If there's much interest i'll upload the file and provide instructions etc.
