Patreon - Vimeo Archiver

Uses python and selenium to load patreon. Login using your credentials. Then checks for vimeo videos with the episode name.

I originally created this because I have terrible internet on my portable devices, and wanted a way to watch the videos that did not require the patreon application as I had zero devices that were supported.

So just archive the vidoes and then sync to your portable device
