Scenario: I go to a webpage I get the link of mp4 file from XHR section when I watch it under page source. I can copy the link address, then I use wget to download the link.

I can script the way to automate download and all the downstream processing. But main hurdle is extracting the mp4 link from the XHR, I tried viewing page source but its not there, its only seen under XHR section when viewing page source.

Requirement: I need a way to be able to extract the mp4 link from XHR section of the page automatically.

thanks

Hello,

Unfortunately, this is beyond my experience and capabilities with AppleScript/Automator. Maybe the folks over at MacScripter could help you out.

Sorry,
