Code:
urls = ['https://example.com/']
for url in urls:
    response = requests.get(url)
    soup = BeautifulSoup(response.content, "html.parser")
    pattern = re.compile(r'https(.*?)m3u8')
    script = soup.find("script", text=pattern)
    print(pattern.search(script.text).group(0))

when run it prints this url


Code:
https://example.com/live\u002Dhls/amlst:bla\u002Dsd\u002D6359b748af746aa988a1536f82a19924578bd4b37e51197389a70775558f3cbf_trns_h264/playlist.m3u8

i need to replace \u002D with -

Code:
https://example.com/live-hls/amlst:bla-sd-6359b748af746aa988a1536f82a19924578bd4b37e51197389a70775558f3cbf_trns_h264/playlist.m3u8

Hi bob123...

I don't use BeautifulSoup but you could try putting it into a variable, untested:
Code:
MYURL=str(pattern.search(script.text).group(0))
print(MYURL)

hi thanks for reply

that just prints the same url with no change



i need to replace \u002D with -

Not sure I understand your request. Do you want to enhance your python3 script to do the replacement / interpretation within, or do you want to process its output afterwards with a standard *nix text tool?
