Output has no comments

Closed

So I run the actor and it succeeds, in theory, but the output has no comments at all https://console.apify.com/actors/runs/PeYGFGVQhhVtltgrz#log

Let me look into this issue ASAP

User avatar

I have issued an update that fixes the issue. Confirm that comments are being extracted now.

Kind regards

It does now. Although it contains the username in the comment content. Also, in this run https://console.apify.com/actors/2aZUbTgtUqHEsBIDp/runs/M8tqylSQ13bCV9qbd#log it prompts me this error a payload error and ends up at 370 results. Is there a specific problem for this?

For the issue of the of comments, I can add an optional input toggle that simplifies the comments from an object to a string. Will that change be acceptable to You?

Yeah that could be. Although the user id of the person commenting is useful to do network analysis. And so you know why it failed in the end? By the way thank you so much for replying so fast. I'll definetly pay if it works for what I need.

Is the format

1{
2	"cid": "7167208131859219205",
3	"text": "OHHH SHE'S ABOUT TO RELEASE XCX WORLD FR",
4	"uid": "6967012118983050245",
5	"unique_id": "gastonvxldez",
6	"nickname": "Gastón"
7}

Simplified enough or should I remove more attributes from the comments

https://console.apify.com/actors/2aZUbTgtUqHEsBIDp/runs/SXrdFG7s275oComn8#log I'm also having this problem from time to time. It gets no results unless I reset everything and set it up again. But even then it eventually says that the payload is too much so it doesn't extracts all the results.

User avatar

I am working on the payload error and the no results bug. I will issue an update ASAP.

Thank you so much! It works much better now. I did this run https://console.apify.com/actors/runs/4XfEutB1UXOGKyLry#log and it got a bit under 800 results, I know there are almost 1000 videos under that hashtag, is there a specific reason for this? I also wanted to try to add a bulk edit list of links but it was only possible with a file, but I couldn't get a .txt file working. Best!

For the limited results, Increase the Memory and the maximum number of retries. Can you share the text file that you were that you were trying to use to bulk edit? Kind regards

Sure, this is the document I was using.

The actor has been working wonderfully. I think it is suitable for what I need for sure. I'm also wondering, if it's not too much trouble, if is possible to scrape info from the commenting accounts, such as:

Following count Followers count Like count If the account is private If they have bio If its private

Basically I want to create a criteria to see if they're bots or not

User avatar

Thanks for the document. I have already fixed the bug that was preventing reading URLs from the file. On the issue of the commenting account, I can create an optional input field to manage commenting account information.

I will appreciate feedback on how well the scraper is working for you. Kind regards

Were this elements added in the end? I can't try it because my trial already expired to check on this. Also I see that my test dataset have no view count. Is there a way I can try it again to see if it finally fits my needs with the fixes?

User avatar

Hello, I issued an update that fixed the issue. Can you share your input so that I can run a sample for you for review.

Sure, I want to scrape the hashtag "rodrigochavespresidente" and all the comments possible

User avatar

Hi, https://api.apify.com/v2/datasets/a3lsegcnEjftbKcNn/items?clean=true&format=json This is a test dataset with 5 videos from the hashtag with a maximum limit of 200 comments per post. Review and confirm that the comment data is correctly collected.
