Two video ID schemes are in use. Older uploads use a YouTube-like ID of <code>[0-9a-zA-Z_-]{11}</code>, newer ones are <code>[0-9a-f]{8}[0-9a-z]{10}[0-9a-f]{6}</code>. The web page appears to always use the new format, so there must be some correspondence between these.

Plays.tv is a platform for sharing video game recordings and screenshots. The website will be shutting down on December 15, 2019.[1].

URLs

  • Video watch page: https://plays.tv/video/$VIDEO_WEB_ID
  • Thumbnail: https://d[01]playscdntv-a.akamaihd.net/media/$VIDEO_BUCKET_ID/transcoded/$RESOLUTION.jpg
  • Video: https://d[01]playscdntv-a.akamaihd.net/media/$VIDEO_BUCKET_ID/transcoded/$RESOLUTION.mp4

Video IDs on the watch page URLs are [0-9a-f]{18}. In the bucket, two video ID schemes are in use: older uploads use a YouTube-like ID of [0-9a-zA-Z_-]{11}, newer ones are [0-9a-f]{8}[0-9a-z]{10}[0-9a-f]{6}. For the latter, the web page ID of a video starts with the same eight characters as the bucket ID, but the rest differs.

Known values for $RESOLUTION include: 144, 360, 480, 720, and 1080, with some resources only supporting lower resolutions.

The site uses two Akamai CDN domains, d0playscdntv-a.akamaihd.net and d1playscdntv-a.akamaihd.net, and both are proxies to the raptr-replay S3 bucket. That bucket contains about 422 million objects totalling 1085 TiB based on a scan from 2019-11-22 to 25.
