    I don't know if it's DRM or not. Not even VLC can play it. It's 500mb in size.

    Any ideas?

    Install MediaInfo and open the file with that and post those results here. What you've posted above is useless. Maybe that "40D" reference is meaningful to you, but that's not useful to me either, so if you think that might be important, you should definitely explain that one better.

    I would swear that I already replied to this thread. The heat must be taking it's toil.

    4OD = 4 as in UK Channel4 On-Demand. A streaming service like the BBC i-player.

    I ask what was used to download and the original url.

    Ch4 could well have changed their system. The last time I downloaded from there, I had no issues.

    I then downloaded their introduction video and I put it into mediainfo. This is what I got.

    I think the video I am trying to watch is encrypted but the introduction isn't.

    I used StreamTransport. What did you use?

    I think I used hi-download at that time. Now I use tube-digger or jaksta.

    I can confirm that the content is protected as jaksta acknowledged that and refused to download.

    Tube-digger grabs the ads but did not see the main video.

    Most, if not all, programs will cough when they see protected content. Your only resort then is to do screen capture.

    Can you recommend any good screen capture software?

    Look here:

    http://www.videohelp.com/tools/sections/desktop-screen-capture

    Jaksta also does screen-capture (offers that when it can not download) but I have never had the need to use it.

    One not mentioned in the above list is Replay Video Capture. I have used that successfully in the past as well.

    Applian also do a web stream recorder but that will also fail with protected content.
