Finally Enjoy Youtube Comments Again! Search and Sort comments for your favorite videos!
It seems that now-a-days there is little reason to leave a comment on a youtube video. After all, even if the comment is clever or relevant, it's all too likely that it'll be buried under mountains of spam and arguing.
However, not all hope is lost, as the Youtube comment retriever is here to help. With a single click, this extension will sift through thousands of comments and bring you only the comments you're interested in. Highly configurable, this app is a must for both video producers and video watchers alike.
Content producers will appreciate the ease with which they can view the most helpful comments (and block unwanted users), while viewers will enjoy the simplicity with which they can view the most insightful comments.
So, what are you waiting for? Download the extension today and see what you've been missing!
You can sort comments based on Highest Rating, Most Disputed Rating, Lowest Rating and time.
Click on any username to search for it, whether it is a reply or a comment author. You can also click on time skips to search for anyone else who liked a certain part of the video and see what they had to say.
Lastly, have you ever wondered what grade level youtube comments are written at? Well, now you can find out! This program implements the Flesch-Kinclaid algorithm for calculating reading level of comments, which can be turned on from the configuration settings.
Not only can you do these things, but they will work even while on someone elses channel. No longer do you have to click out of someones channel to see the top comments.
This app is highly configurable. You can change just about every aspect, from how large the panel is to the sorting method used for the comments. That way, the comments won't overlap the video you're watching.
