Project Description

========I am easy to work with, communicative, and almost always give 5-star review==================
=========I already have a program that works as follows.============

1. Search Youtube API (for example search "XXX")

Suppose 500 videos were found

2. Among those 500 videos, delete "dirty" things such as those having strange text, and also erase duplicates.

3. Then I get around 50 results.

=========I want to change how it works =============

Due to process 2, I get too few results. I can't remove process 2. This is essential.

So I thought of a way to get more results by changing process 1.

1.1 Search Youtube API for XXX for videos uploaded in 2013
1.2 Search Youtube API for XXX for videos uploaded in 2012
1.3 Search Youtube API for XXX for videos uploaded in 2011
1.4. Search Youtube API for XXX for videos uploaded in 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005

Suppose 1500 videos were searched.

2. (same process as before) Among those 1500 videos, delete "dirty" things such as those having strange text, and also erase duplicates.

3. (same process as before) Then I get around 100 results.

===========Can you make the changes I wrote or suggest a better way to get more data?=======================
==========I will send you the existing program and the link to the live version of the program once you post message ======================
