Linkcheck over multihoster / alternative linkcheck APIs
|Status:||Waiting for Feedback||Start date:||11/10/2019|
Add feature which allows other plugins than the "official" ones to perform the linkcheck instead.
This is useful for multiple reasons:
- Linkcheck of URLs of GEO-blocked sites such as zippyshare
- Correctly displaying the filesize of video sites (e.g. multihoster will always return a specific quality/filesize which we cannot know at the moment)
Use host-list of supported MOCHs to know, which providers can be link-checked by them.
As a fallback, original linkcheck can be performed to verify this in case 2rd party API returns offline status.
Available APIs / APIs under development:
So far there are no good APIs available for this - this ticket is more a summary of ideas until APIs are available.
Premiumize.me is currently developing an API - once done it can be found here:
They already have an API call for this but I was unable to test it because my test account does not work anymore.
