147

u/cantileverboom Jan 15 '22 edited Jan 15 '22

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

126

u/Nijensleekie Jan 15 '22

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 Jan 15 '22

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of course, I wouldn't necessarily be surprised if the docs are out of date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

36

u/crimpysuasages i poast shit meme Jan 15 '22

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 Jan 15 '22

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 Jan 15 '22

ah, good to know

8

u/Zakaker Jan 15 '22

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.

4

u/cantileverboom Jan 15 '22

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

4

u/newtelegraphwhodis Jan 15 '22

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

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 Jan 15 '22

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.
