YouTube Data Viewer

The YouTube Data Viewer is a simple tool to extract hidden data from videos hosted on YouTube. It allows you to extract the following variables, which are most useful for tracking down original content:

  1. Exact Upload Time
    Useful to determine original video when confronted with several copies of the same video from the same date; and to determine actual upload date in same cases (can be different from public timestamp).
  2. All Thumbnails
    Useful to find older versions of the same video, by conducting a reverse image search

(Please contact us if you are interested in further developing this tool with us).

After clicking on the link below, simply paste the YouTube URL in the relevant field.
