Hi team, I want to export the metadata of ALL videos under a certain keyword, so I inputted the keyword and set the limit to 99999 which is the largest number that I can set, but only 640 videos were fetched and some videos i can manually found by directly searching on youtube didnt appear in the results. Can you fix it? Run ID: afP1aH807T3Q8ZKju

Hi definable_paddle! I've tried scrolling manually your search term and YT actually cuts the search results after some number (600-800). Could it be so that you compared the output of this scraper to search results from your YT account (or some country that isn't USA)? If so, then that would explain different results (in the first case - tailored reccomendations). I'm not sure if that would fit your needs, but you could also look at official YT api, I believe they would not have such restrictions as a scraper has https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/search/list
