  1. Trying to grab this, but no luck with ffmpeg, getting 403 when trying to acquire a key. Wondering if somebody here can help me and show me how to do it. Here's one link to a free episode:

    You may need a .us proxy

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    The link you provided requires provider authentication, because it has not been 7 days since broadcast. The free episodes are older than 7 days. Your link is for 6/20 episode, which is less than 7 days.

    Note that if you provide a link to an episode older than 7 days, the method for downloading will not be the same for an episode that requires provider authentication (less than 7 days old).

    ffmpeg works ok on that one. Does your input to ffmpeg look like this (sig= will be different):
    Code:

  4. yep -- but as i was waiting for a reply, i ran into this thread that mentioned you needed any ffmpeg release older than 20140115 for this to work -- i just downgraded and tried again

    Success so far!! seems to be downloading.

    Thanks for your help !

    Can you tell me the exact code to paste into ffmpeg dos window? I want to try it. And how do you get the code?

    The ffmpeg issue relates to ssl (https). The authenticated episodes seem to use https links, whilst the other episodes use http links.

    I fire up HTTPFox, click my video and wait for the m3u8 file to appear then ffmpeg -i "url to m3u8 file" -c copy output.ts


    On a side note, i was able to grab a couple of eps, but others are failing with this error:

    Code:
    [mpegts @ 0ac3daa0] AAC bitstream not in ADTS format and extradata missing
    av_interleaved_write_frame(): Invalid data found when processing input
    Is this something anybody can help with? google doesn't seem to be of much help in this case.
