    Great info. I was stupidly approaching conversations with ghostly beings in a very unprofessional manner. Need to buy the proper REM-POD and Olivus ghost detecting equipment. My current ghost detecting equipment is so junky.

  2. Ok another Tubi TV video:

    https://tubitv.com/video/244480/s01_e01_a_surreal_beginning_part_1

    I've been using the advice from a year ago to get the episodes of the shows I wanted, until about roughly 6 months ago, when the site started doing something funky with it's videos, as using:

    https://c11.adrise.tv/v2/sources/content-owners/endemol/244480/v201605061154-654x480-,...239,k.mp4.m3u8

    With:

    livestreamer "hlsvariant://https://c11.adrise.tv/v2/sources/content-owners/endemol/244480/v201605061154-654x480-,477,1081,1662,2239,k.mp4.m3u8" best -o video.ts

    As what I put into the command prompt which still does download the video perfectly fine, and the video plays. HOWEVER. The videos now no longer come with the usual time lengths (eg 42:00) and now instead just show 0:00 as the length but still play and certainly go beyond that length. They also now suffer from slight time jumps every now and then.

    Any advice? I've tried changing the output file extension to being .mp4 but that made no difference. Up until 6 months ago any files I'd use the earlier code given worked like a charm. Files always came with time lengths and never suffered any time jumps etc.

  4. Somebody wanted to download this video:
    http://nbc24.com/news/local/haunted-nw-ohio-a-ghost-hunt-with-meteorologist-kimberly-newman
    I played the video for a few seconds with Firefox with Tools>Adblocker Plus<Open blockable items and searched for m3u8 and found this entry:
    Code:
    https://content-auso3.uplynk.com/58c43b2b5cbf4426a1df746efaaf9ebf/g.m3u8?tc=1&exp=1480507294&rn=2143462078&ct=a&cid=58c43b2b5cbf4426a1df746efaaf9ebf&sig=15c51749ba6ecaa049f3b47935e76e47d4cffc0e79943571f6c86a21441e5278&pbs=d50a9d373eb7405cac41a95a415a7bb1
    I just used the first part that ends in m3u8:
    Code:
    https://content-auso3.uplynk.com/58c43b2b5cbf4426a1df746efaaf9ebf/g.m3u8
    I put this into youtube-dl like this:
    Code:
    youtube-dl https://content-auso3.uplynk.com/58c43b2b5cbf4426a1df746efaaf9ebf/g.m3u8
    It downloaded a 81MB file.
    Question for anybody: is there a way to download a smaller file size? I got I high res file and prefer lower resolution.

    Hmm odd. Was there timestamps on the video? And did it run seamlessly?

    When I tried it came without timestamps and at certain bits would jump ahead a few seconds suddenly, though only at certain points.

    Testing now with what you did to see if that makes a difference on my PC.

    [edit]
    Hmm that did work. Weird. Yet when I tried earlier on using the "best" that had the lack of timestamping and jumps in the video. Very odd.

    [edit 2]
    Ok it does work, but the time jumping still happens. Like if you skip ahead in the video then there will be bits where it skips ahead 30 seconds to a minute. And the timestamping disappears once you jump ahead. Also if you look at the video in Windows explorer it doesn't show how long the video will go for. Unlike previously (6 months earlier), when the go was to download them as ".ts" files, and these show timestamps, allow jumping ahead perfectly fine and show their length in Windows explorer.

    If I download the files as ".ts" instead then the Windows Explorer bit is fixed, but the time jumping is still there.

    Just giving a detailed run down.

  7. Hmmm. Might be a VLC movie player issue. I tested it in Windows Movie Player and that did not skip at the bits it did in VLC. Though I did notice some occasional freezes, so maybe a few kilobytes missing here and there, which is where VLC was not liking it.

  8. Hi icemann ,

    Try on repairing the file g-g.mp4

    Batch file
    ===
    @echo on
    FOR %%i IN (g-g.mp4) do CALL mp4box "%%i" -raw 1
    FOR %%i IN (g-g.mp4) do CALL mp4box "%%i" -raw 2
    rem verify you got 1 (.h264) et 1 (.aac)
    pause
    rem assembly (.h264) et du (.aac)
    "MP4Box.exe" -add g-g_track1.h264:fps=25.000#video -add g-g_track2.aac#audio -new "g-g_final.mp4"
    rem verify you got 1 ("g-g_final.mp4")
    pause
    :fin
    ===

    !!! NOTE : verify if fps=25.000 or fps=30.000 !!!

    Cheers .

    The results of running that batch file.

    So it looks like I was right on there being some bytes missing. I tried downloading a few episodes from tubi tv via the program "Allavsoft" and the videos done via that suffer from the exact same issue. Very odd.

    It's as if the site itself has setup their video files to be incomplete, but yet totally viewable fine from the site itself. That's just my guess.

    "g.m3u8" is a single quality variant m3u8 playlist. In reply #122 in this thread, I explained that if the source of the page is viewed, the master m3u8 is contained within it; (https://content.uplynk.com/58c43b2b5cbf4426a1df746efaaf9ebf.m3u8)

    The master m3u8 playlist contains variant playlists (including g.m3u8) for six different qualities.

    Livestreamer isn't necessary, although you can use it if you absolutely have your heart set on it.

    You can just paste the url into your browser (chrome) and then right-click on the page and choose "save as".

    If using livestreamer, use the httpstream plugin:
    Code:
    livestreamer "httpstream://c12.adrise.tv/v2/sources/content-owners/endemol/244480/v201605061154-654x480-2239k.mp4" best -o v201605061154-654x480-2239k.mp4

  15. I was just using livestreamer as the site using geolocking to prevent people outside the US from accessing the site. VPN gets around that.

    Is there others that work fine?

    And dayam that fixed it completely. The file downloaded works perfectly. Thank you very much to all .

    [edit]
    Where did you get the c12 bit from? When I looked up the video it came up as c11.

    Hey y'all, it's been a while since I made a request, but I have some video links that I really would like to get for a direct DL. So can anyone please help me out and get the direct DL address for:

    * http://www.npo.nl/bankgiro-loterij-nieuwjaarsconcert/08-01-2017/AT_2070107
    * http://www.npo.nl/bankgiro-loterij-nieuwjaarsconcert/06-02-2016/AT_2051417
    * http://www.npo.nl/nieuwjaarsconcert-met-guus-ilse-trijntje/11-01-2015/AT_2026923.

    If possible in the highest resolutions. Would be greatly appreciated!

    I used youtube-dl with the g command.
    template:
    youtube-dl -g url of video
    final command to get url of video:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -g http://www.npo.nl/bankgiro-loterij-nieuwjaarsconcert/08-01-2017/AT_2070107
    youtube-dl gives this http url (see screenshot 1) which can be used to download the video:
    Code:
    http://content10c5c.omroep.nl/urishieldv2/l27m5d8d90714efec73e005872e6d7000000.6a92e539bfe2d946d861169cb4abfca8/ceresodi/h264/p/26/10/10/2e/std_AT_2070107.m4v
    Put this in Firefox browser to download a 564MB file. (See screenshot 2)
    Link to youtube-dl that I used:
    http://files.videohelp.com/u/61125/youtube-dl.zip
    You can also use the F command (gives available resolutions).
    Template:
    youtube-dl -F url of video
    command to get available resolutions:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -F http://www.npo.nl/bankgiro-loterij-nieuwjaarsconcert/08-01-2017/AT_2070107
    A list of available resolutions is listed (see screenshot 3).
    I choose
    674
    which is 640x360
    Template:
    youtube-dl -f resolution url of video
    final command to download video:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 674 http://www.npo.nl/bankgiro-loterij-nieuwjaarsconcert/08-01-2017/AT_2070107
    During downloading you can press
    ctrl c
    to stop the downloading before it's finished. You can play the partial download with Media Player Classic Home Cinema

    Thank you very much Jim for your input, but that's exactly my problem with Y dl. Every time I get the command "is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

    Also, if I want to start up the Y dl exe it mostly does not start anymore. It pop-ups for a few seconds, shows the black screen, and then instantly disappears.

  21. Steps to use youtube-dl command line:
    0) Never click on the command line software. That's not how you use it.
    1) Download and unzip youtube-dl from here:
    http://files.videohelp.com/u/61125/youtube-dl.zip
    Unzip the archive and (for convenience) place the folder on the root of the c drive.
    See screenshot 1, red arrow.
    (The youtube-dl folder has 3 softwares it: youtube-dl, ffmpeg, ffprobe)
    2) Before you can paste/type in a youtube-dl command, you have to navigate to the youtube-dl folder
    If you don't do this, you will get error like:
    'youtube-dl' is not recognized as internal or external command...
    3) Your computer might be different, but when I start the command line I see this:
    C:\Documents and Settings\default>
    Before you paste in a youtube-dl command, you need to navigate to the youtube-dl folder so that you see this:
    C:\youtube-dl>
    I use the
    cd..
    command twice to navigate up to the C drive and then the
    cd youtube-dl
    command to navigate inside the youtube-dl folder.
    Then you can paste in a youtube-dl command to use the software. Look at the following 5 lines:

    C:\Documents and Settings\default>cd..

    C:\Documents and Settings>cd..

    C:\>cd youtube-dl

    C:\youtube-dl>paste your youtube-dl command (blue color) here

    example:
    Code:
    C:\youtube-dl>youtube-dl -F http://www.npo.nl/bankgiro-loterij-nieuwjaarsconcert/08-01-2017/AT_2070107
    See screenshot 2

  22. I used ABP in firefox and the latest version of livestreamer to download stuff from CBC doczone. It worked great with grabbing the video but for some reason there is no audio in any of the streams I downloaded. Any suggestions on what the problem or issue may be.

    thanks for any advice
