Project Description

The goal of this project is to give developers an easy way to access data stored on, things like episodes, their enclosures and so on. It is a wrapper around the API and encapsulates the formatting and parsing job.

bliptv.reader Package Changes

bliptv.reader version 1.0 (2008/07/27)

  • initial release

Detailed Documentation


To install it, the best way is to use easy_install:

$ easy_install bliptv.reader

This will download the package and it’s dependencies from PyPI. If you don’t have easy_install installed, you can download it here:


First you need to import it:

>>> from bliptv.reader import Show

Now you can select a show and initialize it. We take COM.lounge TV as an example which can be found at The showname thus is “comlounge”:

>>> show = Show('comlounge')

We can now select the first page of episodes from it:

>>> page1 = show.episodes.pages[1]

We can also retrieve the next page like that:

>>> page2 =

And go back to page1 with prev:

>>> page1 = page2.prev

Unfortunately does not return the overall amount of episodes so that we can only check next and prev if the return None like this:

>>> page1.prev is None

Also note, that the list of episodes is backwards, starting with the most recent episode.

Now we can check the episodes in that page (we can only test existance here because we don’t know the exact names of the episodes as these change all the time):

>>> episode = page1[0]
>>> len(episode.title)>0

>>> episode.url.startswith("")

Moreover you can access:

The rating of the show, e.g. TV-UN
A plain text version of the description
The HTML version of the description
The tags used as a list


One important part of course are the media files of an episode. These are stored as a dictionary inside the enclosures attribute of an episode:

>>> enclosures = episode.enclosures

The dict is a filetype => Enclosure structure:

>>> enclosure = enclosures['video/x-flv']
>>> enclosure.filetype

>>> enclosure.url.startswith('')

>>> enclosure.filesize>0

>>> enclosure.height>0

>>> enclosure.width>0
