Date of a YouTube comment
Since the YouTube API was modified in 2020, YouTube website comment data no longer contains the exact publication date of the comment. Only an indication of how long it has been since publication is shown:
- 10 minutes ago
- 2 months ago
- 3 years ago
These imprecise indications are not sufficient in order to count back to the exact time. This is why we decided to display the following:
The date of a YouTube comment harvest is always the date that the video was posted.
This comment text is displayed before the information on the publication period that has elapsed.
