By identifying the brotheran alert is sent by the computer. THE Occupation it’s a hand on the wheel for those who like to follow a certain person without having to switch cameras.

“Looking at the payperview of Big brother Brazil at GloboplayI had to keep looking for the participants I wanted to follow between the cameras, and it bothered me as a viewer, ”he wrote in the LinkedIn. To achieve a satisfactory result, Rafael used Web Scraping techniques to access the cameras in the house.
