Scraping Subscription-Videos From Wistia Based on Known Related Information

2 replies
Hi,

I don't have a clue about this, just a faint idea, most likely fantasy.

So I'm wondering if it's possible to scrape for more videos if one already have 3-4 URL's with videos from the same subscription site? So I see many denominators which is a part of every videos html code, so if there was a way to scrape Wistia URL's based on 3-4 common denominators, would one be able to get access to the rest of the videos?

https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/<insert_video_address_here> + some html code that one can find for every video = possibility to retrieve every video (not PW protected, it's just to paste the wistia url in the browser and start watching) based on the set criteria?

Probably not, but I thought I'd let someone who knows answer it instead of me.

Thanks.

    Yeah, it's possible. You should look into some Python libraries like Scrapy, Selenium or Requests.

      Thanks man, very much appreciated.

      Hopefully it won't require some high end coding skills, but I could outsource that part if needed.
