When your IT department fails you Web Scraping with AutoHotkey can save the day!

web scraping with AutoHotkey

One of my clients has over 3,000 videos on their website.  Amazingly nobody in their IT department can provide a holistic file with metadata like: Title, # of views, Length, Format, Tags, etc.  How crazy is that?   After contacting their video hosting company, nobody could (would) share this information!

Web Scraping with AutoHotkey to the rescue!

I wrote web scraping with AutoHotKey script that first got a list of all the videos, then looped over them and extracted various attributes about each video.  Not an ideal way to get this, but the client was manually going to go through this by cutting & pasting from their browse.
