149

u/cantileverboom 12d ago edited 12d ago

The API to obtain the dislike count still works, so the plugin calls the API and inserts the dislike count itself.

If YouTube ever removes the API, then there won't really be a way to obtain the dislike count.

(if anyone is unfamiliar with APIs, the Wikipedia page has a decent amount of info on them)

edit: seems like the API doesn't apply for new videos, and bases it off of user data from the extension. Thanks for the info fellow redditors

130

u/Nijensleekie 12d ago

This is used to be true. That API feature is gone now. They pulled all historical data before it was gone. New videos have estimations based on the users using their software.

23

u/cantileverboom 12d ago

Are you sure? It looks like it's still there (see statistics.dislikeCount under https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/videos#resource-representation )

of course, I wouldn't necessarily be surprised if the docs are out of date

edit: saw the other comment explaining it doesn't work for new videos

39

u/crimpysuasages i poast shit meme 12d ago

Dislike counts still exists, but the API to pull it to user-side experience doesn't. Thus, we can't actually call the API in order to receive real-time and accurate YouTube-based dislike counts any more.

u/FyniteTheRedditor 12d ago

It no longer relies on the API for newer videos since YT removed the option there as well. It guesses based on the plugin users' behavior. Linus tech tips has a great video explaining it. Watch it if you're interested.

1

u/cantileverboom 12d ago

ah, good to know

9

u/Zakaker 12d ago

Actually, the API has already been shut down. Quoting from the extension's official website:

"Where does the extension get its data?"

A combination of archived data from before the offical YouTube dislike API shut down, and extrapolated extension user behavior.

3

u/cantileverboom 12d ago

yeah, saw the other commenters' responses. Really a bummer, and thanks for the update!

5

u/newtelegraphwhodis 12d ago

Ok but hear me out.

A separate database that stores like/dislike click ratio by users with the extension, then extrapolates the dislikes by total likes on youtube to get a rough estimate of dislikes.

But hopefully the API sticks around.

Edit: oh I guess this is exactly the case now. Bummer

u/Lauren5Minutes 12d ago

Legitimately, this is why the removal of that feature was harmful.

Not in some 'public safety' way, but it allows channels that spread false information a chance to thrive on the platform - and they shouldnt. Not even for a second. Showering a lazy uploader with dislikes is how they learn not to take shortcuts. As far as the tutorial side of YT goes, that was a badge to say "this person doesnt know what theyre talking about".

Practicing that fake-authority cadence and production quality but still being too lazy to learn what the hell you're teaching absolutely SHOULD ruin your reputation. That's what dislikes are for.

11

u/prestigious_delay_7 12d ago

This is also why YouTube used to be superior to googling random instructional articles. If something was giving bad advice, you could tell by the number of downvotes and then find the reason in the comments (e.g. electricians saying that's a stupid ass way to do that and going to get you killed). Websites have no such mechanism and google's search rank AI certainly isn't smart enough to identify bullshit. In fact, it's argue it's worse because the people writing bullshit have studied what makes the rank AI work and game the ranking system.

The first hit I got when trying to figure out how to change my car headlight was a video with, "and you're going to remove the whole tire". All the comments pointed out it was wrong, but this was somehow the first one.
