Scraping RSS feeds from YouTurd channels, the EZ way!

Click for template.

So this is going to require a Mozilla based web-browser to do because it supports bookmarklets, which are pretty much bookmarks that can run some javascript on a page.

Step 1:

Create a bookmark.

Step 2:

Copy the following script into the bookmark “location” or “URL” form.


Step 3:

Go to any channel on YouTubb, then click that bookmark and profit!

You should see the following prompt with an exact feed address. Copy this into your feed reader and you’ll no longer need the subscribe or bell crap to follow a channel.

Also, please increase the auto-refresh frequency of your feed reader to at least 15 minutes and not every minute, otherwise Google will catch on and cut it off. Don’t ruin it for the rest of us now, OK!?

Thanks for reading my blog!

        • Invidious instances have an RSS button on channel pages, which is what I prefer to use over YouTube. It still all comes from Google in the end, but the interface is nicer.

          • Hey there fren!
            Invidious was the way I use to get my feeds for YouTube channels, but I kept running into an issue where the instance I would get my feeds from would go offline! So that's why I do it this way now.
