Is it something like google, youtube, facebook, etc? These have
publicly available API specifications.

If it's just a random website without a well maintained public API you
would look at the html source of the upload page and see what
name:value pairs are sent along with the file from the form that does
the upload. Then you would create such a POST request from python.

Psss, psss, put it down! -
