Twitter Based Videos

Post by CuF » Sun Sep 18, 2016 5:23 am

Is it already possible, or could an update include support for videos embedded in Twitter (that are hosted by Twitter)?

Jdownloader2 is already capable of parsing a Tweet link and extracting the link for the MP4 file. It should be possible for FlashGot to do the same.
The problem for FlashGot is the video file name isn't in the code. There is only a link to another location, which I believe contains playlists which contain the link.

No time at present, but a quick look saw .ts, implying segmented files that NoScript doesn't typically handle. Imagine there is a .m3u8 or similar there too...
