    Is there some strategy for finding the name of an S3 Bucket? I have access to some videos and want to see if I can rip the others?
    Thanks for your feedback.
    PEACE

    This is only way I know of finding names of s3 buckets:
    site:.s3.amazonaws.com "keyword"
    put this in google search with what you are looking for as the keyword.

    That's a very useful tip - I did a test it on a popular topic I know a lot about, and found loads of PDF's that could be downloaded and plundered for content

    Lovin- the reason you're not getting anything in your search is because the first part of your search phrase must *literally* include "site:.s3.amazonaws.com" and THEN include your relevant keyword. In other words, don't include the target site NAME, use the WORD 'site:' (without quotes--but include the colon :) and then the rest. Use what chuck1008 gave, but just replace the "keyword" part, and you should have better luck in your search. ~J
