ContextMiner allows one to collect all sorts of data from a number of sources, including YouTube. However, due to technical and legal issues, it does not let one download YouTube videos directly on our servers. But now you can do it very easily! We have made it possible to connect your ContextMiner campaign and download the videos on your client.
Requirements: PHP 5 or higher, Python 2.4 or higher, youtube-dl. Note: we have tested this on UNIX machines (Linux, Mac OS X), but it should be possible to use it on a PC as well, given you have the right tools listed here.
Once you have the above setup, follow these simple steps. The flash videos from YouTube will be downloaded to your hard drive locally.
