Video tutorial

Watch me get the comments and explain how the bot works in detail:

How to download all YouTube comments?

  • Sign up on Botster
  • Click the Start Bot button to open the bot configuration page
  • Paste the link to the YouTube video and hit "Start"
  • Select the number of comments to scrape (up to 500 000)
  • Check if you'd like to pull comment replies as well

That's it! The bot will attempt to load all comments from a YouTube video and will notify you via email, Slack or Telegram once the job is completed.

Data output

The bot will return the following data:

  • User nickname
  • User URL
  • Comment date
  • Comment text
  • Total comment upvotes
  • Comment reply count 
  • Comment responses (up to 500 per each comment)

You can view your data online or export and download all the YouTube comments as a CSV, Excel or a JSON file.


YouTube shows there are 100 comments but the bot returned 70, why?

YouTube total comment counter includes:

  • Actual visible comments
  • Deleted comments
  • Removed comments that were marked as spam
  • Comment replies

Can this bot extract comments from YouTube's user's blog posts?

No. This bot can only extract comments and comment replies that were posted under the public YouTube videos.

Can this bot extract comments from the LIVE chat section (aka "discussion tab") of YouTube?

No. This bot can only extract comments and comment replies that were posted under the public YouTube videos.

To use this bot you need to register or log in first.

Frequently asked questions

All you have to do is provide a link to the video, hosted on YouTube and the bot will do the rest.

You can try the tool out by scraping up to 10 comments of any video free of charge, however, there's a fee to scrape larger amounts of comments.

After the bot completes the job you can export the scraped comments to CSV, Excel or JSON file.

Awesome bot. I think it's the only one that extracts user replies from comments. Very quick turnaround and super easy to use. Five stars.
