We need a script that will harvest links to video streams from various websites across the web (which I will define for you) and put them in MySQL, XML, CSV format. The script will parse and dump the URL for MP4/AVI videos from various RSS feeds (along with the metadata like title/description/date), as well as RTMP, RTSP and MMS live streams from various websites. It will need to have some intelligence to figure out what format the stream is being displayed in, make sure the stream is active and responding, and put the valid link in the output file. Script can be written in perl, php, python or whatever you are comfortable with. It will be run from the server via cron maybe daily or every few hours.

Here are some sample locations we need to pull video links from:

  [obscured]  /index/videos/default
  [obscured]  /services/podcasting/cnnnewsroom/rss.xml

And examples where we need to pull LIVE streams from:

  [obscured]  /arabic-channels.html
  [obscured]  /television/63.htm
