Video Problem

Post by Bigjosher » 02 Dec 2021, 01:42

I am trying to crawl a website that has .mp4 files on it, but yet when I go to set the engine up in the drop-down list, I chose video file where .mp4 is one of them. The engine does not pick up the files of mp4 format, it picks up the jpeg files that is the video thumbnail nut not the video itself. why is there a video file option when it wont download them at all when it is selected, or am I doing something wrong? don't I just select the video from the drop-down?

I'll try to create a template for this website.

Basically, all you have to do is adding

\.mp4

to the "Included URLs".

Well, if you take a look at the video page source, you'll see that video links look like this:

goodporn.to/get_file/blah-blah/29049_1080p.mp4/?download=true&download_filename=file-name

And this little "/" after ".mp4" makes the URL look like a folder URL, not like a direct file URL :( If the URL looked like this:

goodporn.to/get_file/blah-blah/29049_1080p.mp4?download=true&download_filename=file-name

then Extreme Picture Finder would have picked it up automatically as a Target File URL.

Another way of fixing this problem would be changing the Exploration limits in your project. It looks like you limited Extreme Picture Finder in a way that it ignores the video URLs. Maybe you set the "Exploration limit" to "Current directory and deeper" or to "Current page only" and the video URL lies outside the exploration limit (again, only because URL is not pointing to a target file, but to a "folder").
