A quick way to gather all the metadata about a video, playlist, or channel from the YouTube API.


What's unique about this tool? How can you use it?

  1. If you're curious about a video and its author, playlist and its creator, or channel
  2. If you're curious about an entire playlist's videos or channel's videos
  3. Use it as an API-explorer
    • Grabs every part available
    • Provides shareable link
  4. Use it for investigative purposes and OSINT
    • Tells you what if found and what it didn't find
    • Auto-translations of language and country codes
    • Geolocation direct link to Google Maps
    • Interpretation and display of meaningful fields
    • Reverse image search thumbnails
    • Archive video and channel data that may disappear
  5. Assist in finding private, deleted, and unlisted videos
    • Option to inspect videos in a channel's created playlists to find unlisted videos
    • Link to various resources with prefilled parameters:, Filmot, SocialBlade, and Google
    • Queries Filmot to see if it has data for private and deleted videos
  6. Export and import
    • Save data as a zip
    • Import zip to view in app again later
    • Both raw json data from the api and csv from the tables
