Would you please explain about YouTube importing system?

specifically, to the user with this username & to this channel ID.

thank you for the interest in NodeXL Pro!

There are two YouTube Network Importers:
  1. YouTube User's Network Importer which imports the subscriber network for a YouTube user or Channel. With the changes in their API, YouTube changed the concept of a user to a Channel. So now we have Channel-Channel nodes instead of User-User. However a channel is associated to a user so in the importer you can either search for the channel associated with the "user with this username" or directly search for the channel with "channel ID".
  2. YouTube Video Network Importer which builds Video-Video network based on shared category or commenter. You just have to specify a search term for videos and what statistics you want to download.
Hope this helps!
