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.
