    Community, I need your much appreciated help again...

    The video I want is at
    http://www.2dayfm.com.au/shows/the-dan-maz-show/videos/ronan-teaches-dan-the-boy-band-fist-pump/

    and the website uses Ooyala for their streams. All I've managed to find out with the tools I've tried is that the video is split into .f4f files. I've done a bit of reading on the issue of fragmented video streams but I'm not really getting anywhere. RTMPDump(Helper) won't download it, and URL sniffers will only find URL's for all the fragments.

    Does anyone have instructions - or is anyone able to grab the video for me?

    IDM will detect and download the video. Also, livestreamer will work;
    Code:
    livestreamer "hds://ak.c.ooyala.com/FkcWZ5cDpVkM_a1By44BVe2C9hQr2-Ag/FkcWZ5cDpVkM_a1By44BVe2C9hQr2-Ag_1.f4m" best -o 2500.flv

    Got it! Thanks so much. Can I ask one more question? How do you find the URL for the .f4m file? Both URL Snooper and the Net Transport URL sniffer won't come up with anything, so I'm guessing this isn't how to do it.

  4. @ blimey : I'd like your opinion on this other Ooyala stream : I'm trying to grab this video ( http://www.byutvsports.com/filmroom/watch/?id=4b41f412-c9a2-4907-bf4e-03f6cf76c28b ) , I've tried with Livestreamer (this is the manifest url I've retrieved : hds://ak.c.ooyala.com/xiYThkazqw433PMS3AR92g4kBK5alw_j/xiYThkazqw433PMS3AR92g4kBK5alw_j_1.f4m ) but it fails to record anything and IDM (I have version 6.21 build2) seems to only detect the ad at the beginning...Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks

    The hds (f4m) source has drm. The http mp4 source does not;
    Code:
    http://ak.c.ooyala.com/xiYThkazqw433PMS3AR92g4kBK5alw_j/DOcJ-FxaFrRg4gtDEwOjFsaTowazu7fr
    http mp4 source is only 360p, for 720p use hls;
    livestreamer;
    Code:
    livestreamer "hls://player.ooyala.com/player/all/xiYThkazqw433PMS3AR92g4kBK5alw_j_2500.m3u8" best -o 2500.ts

  6. Great tip with livestreamer, thanks! I'm trying to figure out how to make IDM work too, I don't really have a grasp on how you managed to extract the mp4 source...

  7. @blimey - sorry to bother you again, I hope you'll find a bit of spare time to watch into this too: http://www.byutv.org/watch/daf256a1-a344-4a04-a17a-d92e7f591639/basketball-m-utah-state-byu-21913
    your livestreamer workaround has worked like a charm for all the videos I've tried to capture on the site, but when it comes to this one I am at a loss...the f4m I've retrieved is http://ak.c.ooyala.com/ByM21qOTojsfvpGlZvPGTb0HlqXe6mdM/ByM21qOTojsfvpGlZvPGTb0HlqXe6mdM_1.f4m Can you help me out? Links for lower res. mp4 are welcomed, in case it's all I can come up with! Thanks

  10. @blimey I need your help once again, always with the same website (byutv.org) I've spent the whole afternoon trying to understand how to find the m3u8 files (I've read each post on this great forum and more) and I think I get the basics (i've downloaded sniffing devices like firebug and urlsnooper and I've understood the trick with the user agent/adblockplus/ff console). I've tried with several other sites and I've (nearly always) had success finding the m3u8 files but I come up empty with this one. There are other videos that I need from this site like http://www.byutv.org/watch/d859a823-2f42-4415-ad91-c624193638ad/basketball-m-portland-byu-21613 and http://www.byutv.org/watch/248c37be-9342-41cf-8688-eb14b8cc2f4a/basketball-m-weber-state-byu-11813 , but of course I would also love to learn about this.
    Could you tell me if there's something else that I could try and I'm missing? I've tried on a desktop and a laptop, running on win7 and xp, if that makes any difference. Thanks for your patience and help

    Changing headers to a user agent from a mobile platform like ios or android should work. Did you also disable the flash plugin?

    Another method is to request the url directly from the ooyala authorization server. But it returns it in base64 - although that is easy to decode. I will make a list of foolproof steps.

    Yeah, I think I did everything right, in fact when I try this on other sites it usually works... Can you provide the m3u8s of the 2 videos I posted, so that I can look into them as well?

    That would be really helpful, thanks

    I just noticed that youtube-dl supports ooyala for at least hls (m3u8) and maybe sometimes mp4. Have ffmpeg in the same directory/folder as youtube-dl. Example command line;
    Code:
    youtube-dl "http://www.byutv.org/watch/d859a823-2f42-4415-ad91-c624193638ad/basketball-m-portland-byu-21613"
    It will pass to ffmpeg and ffmpeg will download hls 720p.

    It calls the m3u8 like this, for example;
    Code:
    http://player.ooyala.com/player/all/g1NGpqOTqcbmjmcpnhUiovAB1ozwCIVx.m3u8?js=1

    You can download RealPlayer or IDM, it should detect the video
    I use both on different computers, both are great

  16. @wakefulcaterer I've tried both tools, I agree they are pretty useful (especially IDM), but in this particular case I'm not having any success...

    I'm trying to figure out how to use youtube-dl, as of yesterday the only Python I'd ever heard of was the snake kind...

    In trying it, exactly where did you get hung up? When running on windows, youtube-dl consists of a single standalone executable that requires no installation.

    "We also provide a Windows executable that includes Python" (from the front page of the youtube-dl website). There is nothing extra to install or setup.

    Basic use of youtube-dl is:

    youtube-dl "url of video"

    You are correct, most inhabitants of the (so-called ) "Computer Science" universe are rather unimaginative folks...

    Word, SilverLight, ShockWave Flash, Perl, ColdFusion, Java, Ruby, etc. --- just pick an old expression and add a new meaning to it,

    this is the rule of the game

    I was trying to use it on my desktop, which still runs on win xp, apparently there's something that needs to be upgraded..I gave up and tried it on my laptop (win7) and it went smoothly. First game is downloading fine, and I've learned something new, a good way to start the week....

  21. blimey, master I seek your help, how do you get those links? please can you find the streaming link of this video?
    http://tvgo.americatv.com.pe/

    so far tried with wireshark and URL helper, no luck.

    Thanks in advance.

  22. When I input:
    It returns with:
    The original fragment URL is http://ak.c.ooyala.com/RxdnYxYjqXunEBJrvaDh3xyBjvO6_CaW/hrvqli8UwHugIYs5l0WuTlW3wC1pm0...1280Seg1-Frag1

    Am I doing something wrong or is this one just not possible? This site requires a UK IP. To play the video in my browser, I use ZenMate or AnonymoX to spoof the IP. It does play in the browser and DownloadHelper is able to download the fragments, but I think they may be encrypted? They will not play with VLC or anything else I have tried.

    Please help!

    I also get that error when trying with Adobe HDS Downloader. I saw blimey mention changing the headers to ios or android to avoid DRM, but I have no idea how to do that.

  25. Hi bmick23 ,

    > ... changing the headers to ios or android ...

    Under Firefox : install the plugin " User Agent Quick Switch " .
    After right-click on an icon ( near the upper right corner ) .
    Make the change needed : ipad or iphone or ios or android . Save .
    Click on the previous icon to enable " User Agent Quick Switch " .

    Launch a link , and see the result ...

    Regards .

  27. amalia,

    I can help you out here. I just recently added decent ooyala support to my video tool for you. Just enter the video url to get a direct link. There is no download required.

    Please know that ooyala has some weird quirks that are hit or miss right now, so keep trying if you get an error.
