    You need to get the author of the video?

    With YT API using JSON you can do this.

    If this is what OP wants it would be trivial to make something that does this (ie: type in video url to bot get back uploader).

    Basically I just need something where it can extract usernames from a youtube video, but once it saves in a .txt file, they would have to be in a list like this: Username001,Username002,Username003,etc. No spaces in between commas.

    How will you be inputting the youtube links into the bot? I can do it a few ways:

    1 - I can get the program to prompt you for the link which you'll have to type in.
    2 - I can set it up where you pass in the link to the video as a command line argument
    3 - I can set it up so that there's a second text file with a list of youtube links you want it to scrape.

    I remember when I needed this exact program, I got someone from thebotnet.com to code it for me.

    It really wasn't that hard. Thankfully Youtube isn't one of those sites that Javascripts every damn thing. Once I'm able to post links in the forum ill come back and post it here in case anyone else needs it.

    Sorry, I've been busy with my job, but I can't reply until I get 15 posts so I'll reply here. When I click what you sent me, it just brings me to the filedropper main site.

    How do you want to find the videos originally - will you supply a list of videos and the bot goes and scrapes all the usernames (uploader and all commenters?)

    If the other guys haven't sorted you out feel free to shout.

    Do you know a way to get all the commenters or comments? As far as I know yt lets you see only the last 1000.

    Basically I want it so that I just put in the URL of the YT video and a list of usernames come up in a list like: Username1,Username2,Username3,etc. No spaces in between commas.
