Vimeo Video Script

The Vimeo Video Script (AKA Maggie Script) is a basic Web Scrapper that retrieves video information from a Vimeo endpoint. This data includes fields such as quality, type, width/height, link, fps, etc. The script will then take the retrieved data and convert it into a CSV file.

While building the application I found that, due to the size of data Vimeo was returning, their Api would occasionally throw a 504 gateway timeout. This error is reasonable as the script was making a request for an array of 100 video objects that contained quite a bit of data. The request would take about 5-10 seconds, and depending on how many videos you want, could be up to 100 requests (The theoretical max). To work around this, I added a 2 second cool down between each request.
