Sending parameters to a remote server via python script

I'm learning python these days, and I have a rather basic question.

There's a remote server where a webserver is listening in on incoming traffic. If I enter a uri like the following in my browser, it performs certain processing on some files for me:


My rather basic question is: how can I achieve sending the above dynamic parameters (i.e. container = container_name and video = video_name) to via a python script?

I've seen ways to ping an IP, but my requirements are more than that. Guidance from experts will be very helpful. Thanks!

import requests

I guess ... its not really clear what you are asking ...

Im sure you could do the same with just urllib and/or urllib2

import urllib
some_url = ""%(video_name,container_name)# you should probably use urllib urllencode here ...
