@gujal - thanks for your contributions. Much appreciated!

An API would solve a lot of the issues, and the add-on would likely be much faster. I doubt they'll implement an API in my lifetime though, so we are stuck with scraping the site.

You should be able to submit a pull request to my github.

You & @MetalChris are really talented guys. Keep up the great work guys! Cheers! Wink

lol, I'm sorely lacking in the talent department. I'm more of a ham 'n egger. My coding style is basically smashing the square peg into the round hole until it fits. Tongue

You got the ball rolling and got it restarted (after divingmule).  This is a very important addon with a huge repository of important historical and alternative material.  I only wish more of the "free" services would be more attractive to developers.  Anyway, as people now say, thank you for your service.

@MetalChris Nothing wrong with smashing into the hole as long as it fits. And your plugin fits well, regardless of how.
So give yourself some credit, you done great. Keep up the good work. Cheers! 🍻

@gujal Great! Hopefully it will work out amazingly! Cheers! 🍻



...oh and btw...
I belive there is an api for archive.org
could be somthing entirly different, but you should take a look just in case.

here's some stuff I found:

https://archive.org/help/json.php
https://archive.org/services/docs/api/
http://blog.archive.org/2013/07/04/metadata-api/
https://github.com/jjjake/internetarchive

Thanks to all for your efforts! MetalChris: since you seem to be fielding suggestions, your National Film Preservation add on is not working.
When you select an item, it starts and stops almost immediately. I though I'd let you know: all the best.

Yes there is an api and that is what I am using to pull the multiple qualities of the item before playback
However the api does not provide list of items in a collection, in our case movies, so have to scrape the webpage for it


RE: Internet Archive - archive.org - barney63 - 2022-05-11

When given an option of formats: avi, mp4, ogv, mpeg, is there one that works better than the others.  I know some may have a higher resolution, but aside from that does one perform any better than the others overall?

the format marked original is the original uploaded file. Every other thing is a format processed by IA.
The codec compression improves in the order
MPEG - AVI - OGV - MP4 (These are Containers, not codecs, the common codecs used by them are MPEG-1/2, Cinepack/MPEG4, Theora, H.264 in that order)
What it means is a 100MB MPEG file will have the same quality as 50MB AVI or a 40 MB OGV or a 25 MB MP4

So if you are presented with an 50MB AVI and 25 MB MP4 at the same resolution, both will look the same, so go for the MP4 as it is a smaller file and smaller load on IA servers as well as hardware accelerated decoding on most platforms including smartphones for playback

Good to know, thanks

@gujal Ahhh right! Gocha! Wink
I thought it was a bit weird when you were both saying there's no api, i was like uhhh yes there is.
but I figured I would mention it anyway just in case. You know?
No harm in posting it because you never know.

thanks for letting me know anyway bro!

Please post a link to your debug log in the NFPF thread.


RE: Internet Archive - archive.org - barney63 - 2022-05-15

ICYDK, NFPF is a category in the Internet Archive, the NFPF addon wouldn't work for me on Windows 7 so it was good to see the NFPF in the IA addon.


RE: Internet Archive - archive.org - AntiPontifex - 2022-05-15

I did not know that: thanks! I'll check it out in the Internet Archive!

@gujal

Trying to confirm what I posted to AntiPontifex has led me to a search issue when I was trying to find the National Film Preservation Foundation category

To clarify, when I say categories I mean: 1950s Classic TV, Additional Collections-Video, The Anime Cascade, Art & Music, The Chin Grimes TV News Archive, etc.  These are among the first Categories that you see when you open the addon.

The other night I was looking to see what there was for categories and then clicking Next Page, the number of pages was endless.  I spent an hour clicking Next Page before I stopped.  Some pages had only one result some maybe three or four, some had a full page of results.

Just now I finally found the National Film Preservation Foundation after clicking Next Page 70 times (around page 70)

Is there a way to search for Categories? ie BBC America, A/V Geeks, Popcorn Project etc  Thanks
