Image from store Save Live Streaming Chats for YouTube™
Description from store YouTube doesn't have any option to save the live chats for live streaming. Well, it's not supposed to have. Live chats aren't meant for reading later but to react them instantly as the video is live. But there can be instances when it is essential to save them for future reading. One use-case can be a instructor giving lesson to her student and asked to leave feedback with rating. Once the video is over, she wants a consolidated view of all the ratings. This add-on will help you to achieve that. * Enable saving chats for a live streaming * Save info like name, time, comment including profile pic * Export chats as csv to save in cloud or send in email

  • (2021-08-03) Marley Jones: It doesn't work. I added the extension and followed the instructions, but when I started the stream there was nothing but the usual video and chat. Nowhere did an option appear to record anything. This extension is useless.
  • (2021-07-23) ef1500: This extension works great but there it cannot save chnese characters properly... they are percent encoded and it is a pain to decode it.
  • (2021-07-11) Eduardo Loureiro Jr.: Não funciona com lives gravadas. :(
  • (2021-04-01) Melo: Great, but it doesn't support any language expect English. All the characters converted into unicode. I suggest replace content_script.js Line 188: 'data:text/csv;charset=utf-8,' + escape(CSV) to this one: 'data:text/csv;charset=utf-8,%EF%BB%BF' + encodeURI(CSV)

  • (2021-02-28) Mitchell Anderson: Can't see the button on Chat Replays. Does it support chat replays? With slow mode?

  • (2020-12-20) Sam Bailey: Installed it. Closed and reopened Chrome. The Save Chat button wasn't there. I restarted my laptop. The save button wasn't there. Any help as to how to get this work would be grateful. Otherwise this extension does not work.
  • (2020-11-08) Daniel Caplinger: This is exactly what I need to save the premiere chats from before the video I will most likely never see again! Also, I hear that some of you have been experiencing network error when reaching some of the high numbers. It worked fine for me at nearly 8,000. If you do get a network error, just click resume. I've had that happen to me with some things before.
  • (2020-11-03) Ting-Yen Hsu: It works pretty good except some row of data were placed into wrong column. For example, message was placed into date and URL. Not sure if it related to encoding system?
