Part 2: A simple script to pull information

  • said in Part 2: A simple script to pull information:

    Can you please reveal me how to get that poster image 284x398

    Use the Windows 10 store app API, e.g.


    Using the path: ["series","NID",["summary"]] will give you large and small boxshots and vertical posters. You'll want the vertical/large.

  • Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately im getting HTTP ERROR 403.

    I am trying to get with curl as get request

    Was trying to add headers with data from chrome request... but with no success. Any idea, what i am doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance

  • Well, for one, the API path seems weird to me, can't make out if its the Win8.1 API (version 2.20 or higher) or the Win10 API (6.20 or higher).
    However, 403 means you're not authorising properly. Perhaps they patched the system so that the same cookie will not work across different APIs. My advice for you would be to grab the cookies from the Windows 10 app and try those.

  • What would be the best way to simply check if a particular title is available? Use the pathEvaluator to do a search query?

  • administrators

  • @admin Yes thank you :) I mean pulling the information directly from Netflix like in the script you posted.

  • administrators

    The following JSON should do it:
    $search='your search string'
    $min='start of your search count, 0 typically'
    $max='max results'
    $at='your auth code discussed previously (may not be necessary)'


  • Thank you! I included "titles" as well (after "$search") and it worked for me. The auth code wasn't necessary.

  • How do you get the information about WHEN titles will become available or expire?

  • administrators



    Now easy way to get when new titles are available that I know of...

  • @admin When I use "availabilityEndDateNear" (for a title that I know is expiring soon) I get back something I don't understand:

    u'availabilityEndDateNear': {u'$size': 16, u'$type': u'sentinel', u'size': 16}

    What does this mean?

  • administrators

    @spiffylogic what title in what country?

  • @admin That was "You Laugh But It's True" in Canada

  • administrators

    @spiffylogic It works fine for me, can you post the PATH JSON you are using?

  • @admin Sorry it is actually working but I got lost in the sea of output. The data for that title indeed shows

    u'availabilityEndDateNear': u'2017-10-05'

    but for all other titles it has that sentinel blob (which is still curious to me...).

    Thanks for your help and for this great forum!

  • administrators

    @spiffylogic Glad to hear it... is your friend

    When I try your code I get this response:
    {u'paths': [[u'shows'], [u'80113701'], [u'browse']],
    u'value': {u'$size': 48,
    u'80113701': {u'$size': 16, u'$type': u'sentinel', u'size': 16},
    u'browse': {u'$size': 16, u'$type': u'sentinel', u'size': 16},
    u'shows': {u'$size': 16, u'$type': u'sentinel', u'size': 16},
    u'size': 48}}

  • Do you guys know how I can get the titles actors, directors and creators?
    Thanks in advance! :)

  • I'm trying to accomplish the same thing as this code sample in c#, I was able to get a working response in python but the rest of my project is in c#.

    However when I use a HTTPWebRequest to get the response stream, the response looks like this:
    "\u001f�\b\0\0\0\0\0\0\0ܖKo�F\fǿ�B�q�%�=�\u0015i\u000e)�&��T\u0004\u0006g�\u0013+Qv\u0017+���\u07fd#m��_M\u0011 \a�F��P\u007f�(��T�Ԟqu����k>\u0017C(i���^���\u0018�_m�ê�u߬����9hn3�ܔ\u0004��ݮ)'w���mL1�:��j����!�u&�\u0002\u001b��L�BP^��\u0018}d��LL9�(]&O�u\u0014Z9\u0017\u0010<\n\u001b2xͬ]\0��\u0010g2�Z��\u0010E��������2uܽ.e���\u001d�@���\u0012XKgIHr |

    (Shortened so not to overwhelm)

    I'm at a loss as to why the response I'm getting in c# is a unicode mess but the python code gets a nice clean response.

    Any ideas?

            string genres = "0,\"to\":1";
            string rmax = "5";
            string sbase = "[[\"newarrivals\",{\"from\":" + genres + "},{\"from\":0,\"to\":" + rmax + "},[\"title\",\"availability\"]],[\"newarrivals\",{\"from\":" + genres + "},{\"from\":0,\"to\":" + rmax + "},\"boxarts\",\"_342x192\",\"jpg\"]]";
            string data = "{\"paths\":" + sbase + ",\"authURL\":\"1516657903506.SW2aceZfllyxCd5V5TPHJdJiMxQ=\"}";
            byte[] byteArray = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(data);
            request.ContentLength = byteArray.Length;
            Stream dataStream = request.GetRequestStream();
            dataStream.Write(byteArray, 0, byteArray.Length);
            WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
            dataStream = response.GetResponseStream();
            StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(dataStream);
            string responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd();

    unfortunately I have never played with C# so I can't be much help there...
