I have been using Octoparse for about a year now, and had a few tasks for Instagram already configured and working. What I usually do is scrape post URLs from location pages, such as this one: instagram.com/explore/locations/238184646/usina-do-gasometro/ in order to, in a second task, scrape data from each post from the list of extracted URLs.
In the last few weeks, however, Instagram pages have stopped loading in my Octoparse v18.104.22.16881 application. I have tried every browser option without being able to fix this. Also, I have attempted to do it in two computers, having the same result.
This took me to version 8.1 Beta, in which the browser loads but the action window freezes as soon as I select "click item" for the first post.
Does anyone have any idea what could be happening?
