Project Description

I have a number of clip stores on various sites, such as clips4sale.com. If you don't know about the site, basically it allows clip producers (such as us) to create an online "store" and sell our video clips there.

I need a program that will do the following:

Log in to my clips4sale admin section with the user/pass provided
Go down a list of my clips and scrape this information for each clip: file name, title, description, price, category, activation date
Note that the list of clips has multiple pages, so it needs to be able to scan through all the pages
Save the information into an xml formatted file, similar to this:

[url removed, login to view]:



My clip title
My description, blah, blah, blah
[url removed, login to view]

2003-01-16 23:12:01


My clip title
My description, blah, blah, blah
[url removed, login to view]

2003-01-16 23:12:01

etc...


The program should ideally be written in php (just because I am most familiar with it so if I need to change something in the future I would be able to do it) but if there is a good reason to use another language I would consider it.

This is so we can speed up data entry on other sites like that and don't have to type or cut/paste everything manually.
