In this video tutorial, we covered how to scrape Instagram image and video posts. The JSON provided by Instagram for album/carousel posts is a little different. Let’s take a look at an Instagram album post such as https://www.instagram.com/p/CBIvNwGB2IX/. By appending ?__a=1 to the URL ( so it becomes https://www.instagram.com/p/CBIvNwGB2IX/?__a=1 ), we can get the JSON. Within the JSON, there is a property called edge_sidecar_to_children which has a list called edges. By looping over the edges list, we can get the link to each image or video within the post.
