Repeated automated queries like this should be done on the Streaming API.
You can track on words like youtube to grab various domains, track on
keywords that indicate a video URL extension, or, you could apply for the
Links stream and process all links however you'd like.

You should not start off by hitting the Search API. In most cases, your
results will be filtered for relevance. In the one case where relevance is
turned off -- soon it will be turned on.
