Hi,

in many scrapes we get this error pattern:

Could you please have a look at this? It appears to be related to an issue in the scraper impelemtation.

Thanks, Dennis

Hi! Thanks for feedback, looks like something specific about https://www.facebook.com/MCakarVoltHSK/photos_by internal format, will check in more details and fix in next few days!

Hi Alexey,

we get the same error pattern in a relatively high percentage of scrapes while many others work just fine.

We always go for the /photos_by path in all our scrapes!

Thanks for looking into this!

Floating issue was randomly caused by photos_by postfix which (again, randomly) recognized as base64 encoded app_section:100064164336997:2305272732 while only 100064164336997 is valid ID for getting related data. Added parsing, so from now on its safe to use both https://www.facebook.com/MCakarVoltHSK/photos_by OR https://www.facebook.com/MCakarVoltHSK
