YouTube comments & users filters

After adding the YouTube video or YouTube Shorts you wish to export comments from, you can apply various filters for comments and users. Each filter is explained below.

Include replies to comments

When you enable this option, comment replies will be included in the exported comments. By default, comment replies are excluded from the export. When included, the export will show the parent comment ID for each reply.

Note: We are not able to get replies on replies.

Filter multiple comments from single user

When this filter is enabled, our tool will exclude multiple comments made by a single user, and only their first comment will be included in the export. A user is identified by a unique channel ID obtained from YouTube.

Filter comments by words or hashtags

When you enable this filter, an additional text field will be displayed where you can input a specific text, hashtag, or answer. To be included in the export, comments must contain the specified text.

  • Analyze user feedback: Exporting YouTube comments can help content creators and marketers analyze user feedback and identify trends, preferences, and areas for improvement.

  • Conduct research: Exporting comments can be useful for conducting research on topics related to your video or channel, such as audience demographics or sentiment analysis.
  • Monitor spam: By exporting comments, you can more easily monitor and filter out spam comments, which can save you time and improve the quality of your comment section.
  • Collaborate with others: Sharing comment data with collaborators or team members can facilitate discussions and collaboration around a particular video or channel.
  • Create reports: If you need to generate reports related to your YouTube channel or video, exporting comments can provide valuable data to include in your reports.
