  1. How can I download the TV shows on Spike.com

    http://www.spike.com/episodes/pykcgc/the-joe-schmo-show-the-bounty-begins-season-1-ep-101

    I prefer to download a file, rather than playing the video and then capturing the video as it plays.

    Note: I use Linux. If you have any advice for Linux users, that would be appreciated. But I'm open to hearing of Windows instructions too.

  2. OP here. I'm using youtube-dl. Seems pretty simple to use. But don't know why it spilts up a video into segments.

    because if you look closely there are 5 parts in the video on the site
    but with ffmpeg you can assemble

  4. Thank you, blezom.


    I have a problem downloading subtitles.

    I tried "youtube-dl --list-subs http://www.spike.com/episodes/pykcgc/the-joe-schmo-show-the-bounty-begins-season-1-ep-101", but youtube-dl just downloads the videos. I expected the command to list all available subtitles.

    If you go to the URL in a web browser, you'll see that closed captions are an option.

    youtube-dl does not detect the subtitles for this site. but I detected them for you.

    but the problem is an xml format and i can not find on linux, a subtitle editor that supports this format
    so i use wine to operate SubtitleEdit in its portable version
    with wine and SubtitleEdit you can convert .xml to .srt or .ass ect

    Oh, so you can only download the video, separately the subtitle and after with a software you can insert them in the video. good reasoning.
