    Hi all,

    Is there a way to scrape Youtube's description?
    I need to verify if the links in the description are working properly.
    I don't want to do it manually since I have to do it with more than 500 links.

    Also, I'm thinking about exporting the data to excel to keep track of it.

    You should set up a project on freelancer, this would be a fairly cheap/quick project for most developers. I don't think there is a tool out there that will scrape descriptions and check links for you.

    Im using the Utube Beast and it scrapes a ton of things, title, description, tags, comment count, users who comment etc etc its down at the moment but a fix should be out this week. Its a LOT cheaper than hiring a freelancer to code something for you since you'll be paying for each and every update and YT is a b!tch updating all the time!
