Python Question

Using a proxy with phantomjs (selenium webdriver)

I'm using phantomJS as a driver for selenium. My code is written in python. I followed the advice from similar questions, and am using the following:

service_args = [
driver = webdriver.PhantomJS(service_args=service_args)

However, when I print the html, barely anything shows up:

print driver.page_source



If I do this with just the usual call to phantomJS, the website shows up as usual:

driver = webdriver.PhantomJS()

For reference, I've tried this with a bunch of proxies from this list:

I'm wondering how to get the page to properly display when using a proxy. Any help would be appreciated!


I suspect that the proxy you are using is incorrect. I tried the following where used proxy behave sanely in windows 8.

from selenium.webdriver.common.proxy import *
from selenium import webdriver
from import By
phantomjs_path = r"E:\Software & Tutorial\Phantom\phantomjs-2.1.1-windows\bin\phantomjs.exe"
service_args = [

driver = webdriver.PhantomJS(executable_path=phantomjs_path,service_args=service_args)
print driver.page_source.encode('utf-8')
print "="*70
print driver.title
driver.save_screenshot(r"E:\Software & Tutorial\Phantom\test.png")

See the saved image(test.png) and see the status. If used ip is blacklisted the google prompted captcha box see that image!! IP has been changed!!
