    Does anyone here have any experience crawling a media website with their media in json "link/files"?

    Would it be possible to pull the actual links out of the json file?

    Basically a streaming website gets their links from 3 or 4 hosts, to save myself time of going to those 3/4 hosts and pulling the links myself I was wondering if I could "piggy back" the links from the streaming site.

    I don't see why not. Why haven't you tried?

    You don't really need to know javascript. It's just an organized textfile. Like a database.

    You'd run it through a script and clean it up leaving just the data you want. For example you'd want to clean it up of all the syntax and code layout so it becomes a plain textfile. Then remove everything that isn't a URL from your whitelisted websites.

    There's more intelligent ways to do it, where you could call specific data. But you need to know how to script.
