We are looking for an experienced php coder for the following project:
Crontab process that calls a php script at wanted intervals.
The php script will be run from command line
There will be a mysql table containing video sources urls with other configuration parameters
The php script will loop through the active fields of the db table and will have to crawl and download all videos found on the site (any format; flash, html5, etc.)
For each video found we will create a field on a video table with the video path / url with other information, like format, date, etc.
Script will have to be highly customizable and support any video format available / any site to crawl.
Some sites may have tricks to not be easy crawlable, the script will have to bypass those tricks and be easy to make specific customizations by site
Test urls will be provided.
