When you first start youtube comment searching, it can be a particularly daunting task; especially if you’re using some sort of search engine like Google to search keywords on Youtube. The problem with these websites is that they don’t let you see the comments as they would appear on YouTube without having to actually go to the website.

In other words, the comments are hidden and you can’t see them in the order that they were made like you would on Youtube. I tested Youtube comment search chrome extensions, and here are my favorites.

What Are Youtube Search Extensions?

Youtube comment search extensions are small programs created for the Google Chrome web browser to seek through Youtube comment sections. The best ones are found on the Chrome store, so if you have not downloaded Google Chrome yet, I would recommend that first.

Once you have it downloaded, do a quick google search of “Youtube Comment Search” and you should find a list of the top ones.

I found Tube Comments to be the best one out there because it allows you to see the comments inline in your browser without having to open up another tab or window.

It also allows you to search for specific words/phrases and lets you search through only the new comments that have been made.

Why Use A Youtube Comment Search Extension?

The reason you would want to use a youtube comment search extension is that the comments are hidden on other websites and you can’t see them in the order that they were made like you would on Youtube.

This becomes an issue when people are trying to research something or find information about a certain topic.

For example, if you’re watching a news report about the recent election and you want to see the comments from people who are talking about the election, you will not be able to do that on Google.

However, if you use a youtube comment search extension, you can easily see all of the comments that have been made on that topic in the order that they were made.

This extension runs a bit slow but provides a comment export. In order to search the comments, you would first perform the export and then search from your spreadsheet.

Show Youtube Comments While Watching

The Show YouTube Comments While Watching extension provides a sidebar with comments similar to what you would see on a live stream.

It’s a much better solution than viewing comments under the video if you want to watch the comments along with the video. 

This is a display comments tool rather than a search comments tool. It works amazingly well. 

Youtube Actual Top Comments

Youtube Actual Top Comments is not nearly as seamless as some of the others but still provides an excellent solution for searching Youtube Comments.

First, click on the extension. Then, choose the fetch comments option. Once the comments load, you can use the filter to perform a comment search by keyword.

Comment Overlay

Comment Overlay (nicolas.ducdodon) provides a social media style comment overlay.

The comments are not appearing at the time the video is playing, however. Instead, they are posted in the same order as the comments would be under the video, and offer a scroll.

The above-mentioned Youtube Comments (by Kenny) is better for those that want to see the comments appear at the time they were posted during the watch time of the video.

Final Thoughts

For anyone interested in learning more about the comments under Youtube videos or other websites, I would recommend getting a youtube comment search extension for your Google Chrome browser.
