I am trying to implement a sentiment analyser for youtube comments.
Specifically, I will fetch all top level comments from videos (max 3-4 pages) for a search query. Then I will deduce the sentiment of each comment. Now here I need a bit of help. Currently I did this with the help of open source API (takes sentence and returns sentiment). Can I do better than that?
Secondly, my end goal is to sort all videos based on comments (video with lot of nice comments should be on top). Could anyone please help me here with some algorithm to accomplish that thing.
