Some post urls on specific accounts are failing to scrape

I can go and grab a random reel from an account on my feed and it works fine: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CiqhqlyMnA9/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link But trying to get this specific users post isn't working (along with other specific users): https://www.instagram.com/reel/ChipkvDggHL/?igshid=ODBkMDk1MTU=

logs just say its not finding the media but the post is still up and you can see it is there.

Thanks for feedback, for second reel logged IG user absolutely required but I can not find a reason why. In other words this reel always available for logged user and never available for scraper or web visitor without login.

same for these although it seems to eventually ask for log in if you go to the posts several times. Perhaps its an issue of them detecting excessive non logged in traffic to a post? https://www.instagram.com/reel/Ch7sowRpNiz/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= https://www.instagram.com/reel/CinOtV6gYBY/?igshid=YzA2ZDJiZGQ= https://www.instagram.com/reel/CifYw8yg6f_/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

here's the results of using the other apify service they seem to be having trouble accessing them as well but were able to get these three. Is there some potential workaround that can be added here my company really needs this and I'd be happy to collaborate with you on this issue.

Thanks, 3 last posts available, see https://console.apify.com/view/runs/h4bEWq417bOkUtrVT just need to get rid of "?igshid" parameter, i,e, https://www.instagram.com/reel/ChipkvDggHL instead of https://www.instagram.com/reel/Ch7sowRpNiz/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= But initially mentioned https://www.instagram.com/reel/ChipkvDggHL still not available, I will check how to fix it by the end of the week.

Thanks for your patience and video downloader lead, really helpful!
