Video File URL

I was trying to create a simple plugin for abc.com. I was wondering how you figure out the actual file URL. Its not in the page source code so how do you go about finding it? I looked at the hulu plugin created by zip but still can't figure this out. Some help would be appreciated.

Re: Video File URL

There is a tip in the Plugin rev guide. Otherwise I sometimes use the Chrome developer tools for network monitoring.

Re: Video File URL

Thanks zip, will look into this. Since I am quite new to plugin dev I would also like to know how do you go about deciding whether to implement a particular plugin as a RSS feed/Webresource. Also is it an exchangable process? eg. any RSS feed can be implemented as a webresource but no the other way around.

Re: Video File URL

If you have a URL for an RSS feed, use feed plugin. If you have to parse web page to get the list of items, use WebResource plugin.
