http://youtube.com/all_comments?v= stopped working and redirects to watch?v=.... A Reddit thread states that AJAX populator also does not allow to show all the comments when there are multiple thousands of them.

How do I workaround this restriction and view & search all the comments of the particular video?

    The official and maybe the only way is using YouTube API. You need to know the basics of programming. I would choose Python. – Vasikos Mar 11 '16 at 8:12
  • You can use this tool I made to download all comments as json youtuberandomcomment.com – Mihai Jan 13 at 9:00

Youtube Comments Suite is excellent and can do what you are asking, though if a channel is large it will take a while to pull all of its comments.

Note that you may have to install Java 8 in order to get the program to run.


There's a site that gets all the YouTube comments of a video for you and shows them in a similar format to YouTube. http://youtubextras.com. It also has a chat box to chat with others and a Top Useful Comments list that comes in handy.

You can use it by adding "xtras" after YouTube in the video url, https://www.youtubextras.com/watch?v=something and it loads it for you.

    That site gives an error if there are more than 4000 comments on a video. – Christian Shay Jan 20 '18 at 17:39
