- The project is mainly used for crawling PornHub, the largest adult site in the world. In doing so it retrieves video titles, duration, mp4 link, cover url and direct PornHub url.
- This project crawls PornHub.com quickly, but with a simple structure.
- This project can crawl up to 5 millon PornHub videos per day, depending on your personal network. Because of my slow bandwith my results are relatively slow.
- The crawler requests 10 threads at a time, and because of this can achieve the speed mentioned above. If your network is more performant you can request more threads and crawl a larger amount of videos per day. For the specific configuration see [pre-boot configuration]
Environment: MacOS, 4G RAM
- Mainly uses the scrapy reptile framework.
- Join to the Spider randomly by extracted from the Cookie pool and UA pool.
