Question:

I installed ClipBucket Video Grabber on my server, and I want to set up a cron job to trigger ClipBucket Video Grabber's cron job script. What should I do to set up the cron job?

Answer:

Our webcron service is best for triggering ClipBucket Video Grabber's cron job script. Just follow below simple steps to configure cron job for your ClipBucket Video Grabber:

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter
    http://www.example.com/crons/grab_flvs.php
    http://www.example.com/crons/embed_to_flv.php
    http://www.example.com/crons/clean_queue.php
    (replace www.example.com with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for ClipBucket Video Grabber, we recommend to have the cron job run "every 5 minutes"). Checkout below screenshot:
