I'm trying really hard to find a specific video on a YouTube channel that has nearly 1000 videos. The channel has a lot of short videos (<10 minutes), but the video I'm looking for was at least 20 or 30 minutes long. I've tried everything from a metadata grabber that crawls all the videos and compiles their metadata into an excel spreadsheet, but the data includes everything but duration. I've tried culling the videos based on their titles but there's still too many to go through. I really need a way to either search or sort the channel's videos by duration, but I've had no such luck.

I know YouTube lets you do a general search by either short, medium, or long duration, but I can't find any way to do this search only for only the videos of a specific channel.

I also know I watched the video at some point in the past year and a half or so, so if there's any way to find it in my own watch history I'd be glad to do that, too. Again, though, there's too many videos in my history to go through them without sorting first by the specific channel and then by duration.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
