Access Denied for Download/get_Video

See original GitHub issue

Hi !

I have some issues to download videos from the API with others than api.trending()'s Tiktok Object. After some research i found out that the Tiktok Object from api.trending and others (like api.ByHashtag()) section are different.


from Trending contains 23 keys from others contains 24 keys

it seems that “Challenges” doesn’t exist anymore.


the format of the downloadAddr is different and the one from others had access denied when i call api.get_Video_By_DownloadURL or get_Video_By_Tiktok. when i print the data (who suppose to be the number of byte of the video) i got : _b'<HTML><HEAD>\n<TITLE>Access Denied</TITLE>\n</HEAD><BODY>\n<H1>Access Denied</H1>\n \nYou don\'t have permission to access_

After some research (on others API/Tiktok scraper) it seems that i need to set correct header but i dont know how to do that.

Maybe i’m doing things wrong ?

Thank you for your help !
