Project Description

Vidscraper is a library for retrieving information about videos from various sources – video feeds, APIs, page scrapes – combining it, and presenting it in a unified manner, all as efficiently as possible.

Vidscraper comes with built-in support for popular video sites like blip, vimeo, ustream, and youtube, as well support for generic RSS feeds with feedparser.

Quick example

>>> import vidscraper
>>> video = vidscraper.auto_scrape('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMpu8jH1LE8')
>>> video.title
u"The Magic Roundabout - Ermintrude's Folly"
>>> video.description
u"Ermintrude's been at the poppies again, but it's Dougal who ends up high as a kite!"
>>> video.user
u'nickhirst999'
>>> video.guid
'http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/PMpu8jH1LE8'

Command line

vidscraper also comes with a command line utility allowing you to get video metadata from the command line. The example above could look like this:

$ vidscraper video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMpu8jH1LE8 \
  --fields=title,description,user,guid
Scraping http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMpu8jH1LE8...
{
  "description": "Ermintrude's been at the poppies again, but it's Dougal who ends up high as a kite!",
  "fields": [
    "title",
    "description",
    "user",
    "guid"
  ],
  "guid": "http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/PMpu8jH1LE8",
  "title": "The Magic Roundabout - Ermintrude's Folly",
  "url": "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMpu8jH1LE8",
