    Guys I have an idea and I want to create it in bot mode.
    The idea is simple, I need bot which I feed it with a lot of amazon links and it should open every amazon page, scrape image, title and description in an excel file and folder (for images) than submit every image (with audio file that I will give it) to an video site (like animoto for example) to create a video,,,,,,, then repeat again.
    Any help? any easy software to create a bot like that? and can I even turn such idea into bot? thank u :)

    Scraping can be done by a bot but uploading images with your audio and making a video out of it is a tough job.

    Okay I can do this step manually with camtasia. So how can I create a bot which can scrape images into pc folders and text into pc excel files?

    I've never used Animoto, but my approach would be as follows...

    1) Do the scraping in PHP using CURL. http://www.php.net/manual/en/book.curl.php
    2) Parse the data and save as CSV.
    3) Use ImageMagick to format the images... http://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-tools.php
    4) Create the video using FFMPEG https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Create a video slideshow from images
    5) Run the php script from command line or using browser with XAMPP etc.

    You can bypass the FFMPEG and ImageMagick stage if you want to use Animoto to create the video.

    You can use the php exec() command to call FFMPEG and ImageMagick etc. and have the whole process within a single php script.

    Linux makes this easier, but you could get away with it on Windows with a bit of faffing. Best bet is to install a Linux OS (Like Ubuntu) using VirtualBox.
