YouTube Metadata

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 just curious about a video, playlist, or channel!
    • How long has the channel or playlist been around?
    • What's the like/dislike ratio?
    • What can YouTube tell you?
  2. Use it for investigative purposes, OSINT.
    • Tells you what it found and what it didn't find.
    • Exact date and times for video publish and playlist/channel creation
    • Auto-translations for BCP-47 country and language codes
    • Livestream date and times; actual runtime and how late/early it started
    • Geolocation with direct link to Google Maps
    • Time difference between actual publish date and video recording date
    • Reverse image search for a video's default 4 thumbnails
    • Whether the video is aimed at children or not
    • Channel long uploads status
    • Tags present on a video
  3. Gives helpful suggestions if a link doesn't work
    • Google search for the id
    • Archive.org for the link
    • YouTubeRecover.com for the video id
    • SocialBlade.com for the channel username
