  1. Hi blimey ,

    Many thanks for your answers .

    Streams available

    [selected] 4598 kbps it's the best one . OK . The DL is very long , 4.200.000 Ko .

    Is there a possibility to choose one stream especially ?

    Not possible in "http://.../archive.ism/Manifest
    Possible to modify the other manifest file in x:\20140718 .

    What could be the command's line in this case ?

    Regards .

  2. Greetings blimey.

    1. How does one determine if stream is HLS v4? The m3u8 manifest seems to indicate v3.

    Code:
    #EXT-X-VERSION:3
    2. Regarding concatenation errors, are you suggesting software that download and assemble the parts locally, such as Adobe HDS, may also suffer from such glitches?

    3. Can ismdownloader produce a download list of chunks, and assemble from locally available chunks? If not, any software that can do it?


    Many thanks and best regards.

  3. Update on further testing done on the site:

    1.Of the 6 flash hls streams tested, vlc was able to process 3 of them without issue. The other 3 had sync/time stamp problems, perhaps due to broken chunks. Downloading and ts dump of the 3hr 6GB Gayane was completed in about 30min. Thanks aazerty.

    Can anyone suggest software that can process m3u8 chunks locally?

    2. ISMdownloader264 took care of the other 3 problematic streams, although they need to be remuxed to be played back smoothly. Thanks blimey.

    3. Tried to get ISMdownloader to process the silverlight chunks locally without success. Does anyone know how this is done? Or aware of any software that can accomplish this?

    Many thanks and best regards.

    It depends on the target container. I use mkvmerge.

  5. Thanks for your kind reply, Endoro.

    1. How do you get mkvmerge to read a .m3u8 file?

    2. If not, GUI option is most likely not practical as we are dealing with more than a thousand 10s chunks.. Would you be kind enough to share a command line instruction to assemble these?

    Many thanks and best regards.

    If you have 1000+ files you can not work on the command line but with option files.
    To join the parts you nee the + and the --append-to command.
    Mkvmerge might also work without the --append-to option, but you get lot of error messages.

  7. Thanks Endoro.

    It seems both the option file and the --append-to will have 1000+ entries. How to avoid this? Is there any batch or loop command that will do the trick?

    I tried the mkvmerge = option, but it stopped at one file. How to get it to work? The file name is of the following pattern, with no file extension:

    Code:
    Fragments(Video=000000000,format=m3u8-aapl)
    Fragments(Video=100000000,format=m3u8-aapl)
    .
    .
    Fragments(Video=999900000000,format=m3u8-aapl)
    Many thanks and best regards.

    Mkvmerge's command line parameters and option file format are described in the man page:

  9. This is the cli created by the gui, using 3 input files:

    Code:
    mkvmerge.exe -o "D:\\out.mkv"  
    "--default-track" "0:yes" "--forced-track" "0:no" "--default-duration" "0:25p" "--aac-is-sbr" "1:1" "--language" "1:eng" "--default-track" "1:yes" "--forced-track" "1:no" 
    "-a" "1" "-d" "0" "-S" "-T" "--no-global-tags" "--no-chapters" "(" "D:\\file0" ")" 
    "--aac-is-sbr" "1:1" "-a" "1" "-d" "0" "-S" "-T" "--no-global-tags" "--no-chapters" "+" "(" "D:\\file1" ")" 
    "--aac-is-sbr" "1:1" "-a" "1" "-d" "0" "-S" "-T" "--no-global-tags" "--no-chapters" "+" "(" "D:\\file2" ")" 
    "--track-order" "0:0,0:1" "--append-to" "1:0:0:0,2:0:1:0,1:1:0:1,2:1:1:1"

    1. If there are 1000 input files, would the "--append-to" become the following? Is there an easy way to create such an entry?


    Code:
    "--append-to" "1:0:0:0,2:0:1:0,1:1:0:1,2:1:1:1..................1000:0:999:0,1000:1:999:1"
    2. Each of the input file has about 10 associated options, and each has to be entered as a separate line the the option file. Againe, is there an easy way to created such a file with 10000 lines?

    Code:
    .
    .
    
    "--aac-is-sbr" 
    "1:1" 
    "-a" 
    "1" 
    "-d" 
    "0" 
    "-S" 
    "-T" 
    "--no-global-tags" 
    "--no-chapters" 
    "+" 
    "(" "D:\\file1" ")" 
    .
    .

    3. I tried the following but only the first file was read.

    Code:
    mkvmerge.exe -o out.mkv =Fragments(Video=000000000,format=m3u8-aapl)
    4. Found this on the web. Would this work? If so, can anyone kindly help turn this into a windows batch command?

    Code:
    set "line="
    for %%a in (*.mkv) do set line=!line! +"%%~a"
    mkvmerge -o "output.mkv" %line:~2%
    Many thanks and best regards.

    To join 1000 files you should better use a script to build the option file. Example:
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF &SETLOCAL
    set /a MKVmin=1
    set /a MKVmax=1000
    
    :: Do not change the code behind this line.
    
    set /a MKVminID=0
    set /a MKVmaxID=MKVmax-MKVmin
    (
    	echo(-o
    	echo(D:\\output.mkv
    	for /l %%a in (%MKVmin% 1 %MKVmax%) do (
    		echo(D:\\file%%a
    		if %%a lss %MKVmax% echo(+
    	)
    	echo(--append-to
    	for /l %%a in (%MKVminID% 1 %MKVmaxID%) do (
    		if %%a gtr %MKVminID% if %%a lss %MKVmaxID% <nul set /p "=,"
    		if %%a lss %MKVmaxID% for /f %%b in ('set /a %%a+1') do <nul set /p "=%%b:0:%%a:0,%%b:1:%%a:1"
    	)
    	echo(
    )>mmkv.txt
    
    mkvmerge @mmkv.txt

    mkvmerge @mmkv.txt
    Many thanks for the script, Endoro.

    When the "echo(D:\\file%%a" is replaced with "echo(D:\\Fragments(Video=%%a00000000,format=m 3u8-aapl)" and beginning with 0, nothing get created. What else needs to be modified?

    Thanks and best regards.

    Batch doesn't like file names with parentheses. In this case, the closing parenthesis must be escaped by a Caret ^.

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF &SETLOCAL
    set /a MKVmin=0
    set /a MKVmax=1000
    set "FragmentName=D:\\Fragments(Video=%%a00000000,format=m 3u8-aapl^)"
    ::----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    set /a MKVminID=0
    set /a MKVmaxID=MKVmax-MKVmin
    (
    	echo(-o
    	echo(D:\\output.mkv
    	for /l %%a in (%MKVmin% 1 %MKVmax%) do (
    		echo(%FragmentName%
    		if %%a lss %MKVmax% echo(+
    	)
    	echo(--append-to
    	for /l %%a in (%MKVminID% 1 %MKVmaxID%) do (
    		if %%a gtr %MKVminID% if %%a lss %MKVmaxID% <nul set /p "=,"
    		if %%a lss %MKVmaxID% for /f %%b in ('set /a %%a+1') do <nul set /p "=%%b:0:%%a:0,%%b:1:%%a:1"
    	)

    Thanks again, Endoro.

    1. The current script creates the following --append-to:

    Code:
    1:0:0:0,1:1:0:1,2:0:1:0,2:1:1:1,3:0:2:0,3:1:2:1,........1000:0:999:0,1000:1:999:1
    whereas the GUI seems to create the following:

    Code:
    1:0:0:0,2:0:1:0,3:0:2:0,.........1000:0:999:0, 1:1:0:1,2:1:1:1,3:1:2:1,..........1000:1:999:1
    Would both work the same way?

    2. So it is alright to omit all the other options created by the GUI?

    Many thanks and best regards.

    The script works for two tracks, e.g. 1xVideo+1xAudio. If you have more, the script must be modified.
    There is no strict order for the "--append-to" option, so both command lines should work.

  16. Many thanks, Endoro.

    Tested the hls stream of 0621 broadcast with following result:

    1. Video lagged behind audio, and much more pronounced if append-mode=track is used.
    2. When demuxing, eac3to complained about 10-20ms overlapping audio for every 10s chunk.
    3. ffmpeg reported "Invalid, non monotonically increasing dts" and quit processing the chunks.

    Is it usual to encounter such artifacts in hls streams?

    How do I get that? I have tried downloading the video using Adownloader and it works sometimes but not using the script.
    So what should i do?
