Programming by Robert S. Robbins. This web application backs up the information on your YouTube subscriptions to
an Excel spreadsheet. You can then save the Excel file to your hard drive or other
media. The reason you may want to export your subscriptions from the YouTube database
is because YouTube has been deleting the accounts of content creators who violate
their terms of service. Some accounts have been deleted without warning or explanation.
If you subscribe to a lot of people and lose your account, you may be unable to remember them all.
However, if you have backed up the channel information then you
can resubscribe to everyone on a new account. Check out my other
pages to back up your favorites.
Internet Explorer will pop up a File Download dialog box giving you the option to Open or Save the YouTube-Subscriptions.xls file.
You will need Microsoft Office Excel or a program capable of opening
Excel files like Open Office.
If you choose to open the file you will see another dialog box warning
about the file extension. This is because the Excel file is in the HTML
format but is being delivered with the XLS file extension. You can
safely ignore this message so just click yes.
NOTE: It is important to realize that this Excel file is in the HTML format
(essentially a HTML table) and needs to be saved from Excel in the native binary
format to create a true Excel file.
