Download videos from InfoQ

InfoQ has amazing collection of presentations from different conferences. I love to watch these videos.

The problem I have is I don’t really have a high speed Internet connection at home. Thankfully, my employer ThoughtWorks has very high speed Internet line in office. So, downloading video in office and watching it at home seems like a very good option.

InfoQ doesn’t have a download button as such for these presentations. Somebody has written python script for this. But I wasn’t able to install bs4 package on my Mac.

So, I created a small shell script for my own to get the URL of the video.

This script is no way perfect. And yes, I know it’s a very dirty code.
