What seems to be wrong here? I can't figure it out.

Please, use proper tags when post code, traceback, output, etc. This time I have added tags for you.
See BBcode help for more info.

Please, post the entire traceback that you get.
Take a time to read What to include in a post
You should get also IndentationError (e.g. look at lines 54-64)

Yes, my apologies regarding the tags,

Right off the bat, I get an error from the login method (the except block is ran)
When I insert the link, I get a syntax error.

Here is the console when the program is ran:
Error:
[!] There was an error! - What video do you want to comment on? - Enter URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEpmYLu-CCA Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/carsonrhodes/PycharmProjects/dyl/venv/Main.py", line 97, in <module> Commenter.fetch_input() File "/Users/carsonrhodes/PycharmProjects/dyl/venv/Main.py", line 58, in fetch_input self.url = input("Enter URL: ") #sample url : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEpmYLu-CCA File "<string>", line 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEpmYLu-CCA ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax Process finished with exit code 1

this looks strange:
Error:
File "<string>", line 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEpmYLu-CCA
for start remove the try/except block from the login() method to fix this error. when using all-catch exception you mask what is going on
also don't use Commenter as instance variable, use commenter

Quote:self.url = input("Enter URL: ")
python2.x is raw_input()
Either use python3.x or change all input() to raw_input()

Hey

I changed all my inputs to raw_inputs, thank you for this tip.

I still have my except blocks going off and I'm not quite sure why.
My login method doesn't seem to work at all.

Change your try/except blocks, so the exception that happens is actually displayed
try:
    ...
    ...
except Exception as exception:
    print(exception)
