Almost all Requests Failing (2)

Thank you for investigating the issue you closed yesterday, but unfortunately we are still experiencing the same error. We did a test run for which we can now provide more details.

To verify the actor's performance, we conducted crawls using the term "Cooking" in English, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. For each run, the maximum items were set to 6000 ("maxItemsPerUrl": 6000).

Here are the results:

Simplified Chinese (zh_CN)

  • Results: 25
  • Requests Handled: 2 of 407
  • Usage: $0.507
  • Started: 2024-05-31 05:36
  • Duration: 30m 57s
  • Run ID: RiqwzDGcS6yDFyY4h

Traditional Chinese (zh_TW)

  • Results: 38
  • Requests Handled: 3 of 416
  • Usage: $0.486
  • Started: 2024-05-31 06:35
  • Duration: 32m 22s

  • Started: 2024-05-31 05:02
  • Duration: 22m 46s
  • Run ID: 34OglrUcSpNWhb7CV (Aborted)

We are seeing many of these in the logs:

Any solution you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the detailed information, it helped a lot. I managed to fix this issue, but unfortunately I found out that due to Douyin API limitations you can scrape approximately 1050 posts per search term. Also, I added more filter options to the actor's input so you can get more videos from the same keyword. If you have more questions or problems, let me know.
