I09 plugin stopped working

I use about 9 news plugins and love them to death!
Suddenly in the last 2 weeks I09 has stopped working, downloading only the TOC. I have tried to understand how these work to trouble shoot - but even after a lot of time on this to work it out, I could not work out the codes at all.

Am i alone? Is the plugin a problem or did the website change so that it no longer works right?

You are not alone. The site has changed. Since the recipe is anonymous, I'll take a quick look at it.

It's not a trivial fix. The old recipe deleted/kept content using tag identifiers. The simplest test is to turn off the tag-based content deletion to see if the desired content shows up. It doesn't. It also won't show up in a browser if scripting is blocked. The site is doing something fun to show ads, prevent scraping, etc. It can be worked around, but will take time to figure out.

If anyone else wants to work on it, here's some code to strip out the numerous VIDEO links:

Code:
    def parse_feeds (self): 
      feeds = BasicNewsRecipe.parse_feeds(self) 
      for feed in feeds:
        for article in feed.articles[:]:
          print 'article.title is: ', article.title
          if 'VIDEO' in article.title.upper():
            feed.articles.remove(article)
      return feeds
