    Hi All,

    I am trying to download video embedded in this URL:

    http://www.zeemarathi.com/shows/ka-re-durava/video/ka-re-durava-episode-195-march-31-2...l-episode.html

    I tried using both KSV adobe HDS downloader and livestreamer. I am not able to find the right command.

    Pl. help to find the right command.

    Note: Thanks to biezom and ponens but I still was unable to download.

    Thanks ponens.
    Here is what you suggested me to try.
    https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/369668-Helpful-solution-to-download-this-video-It-s...=1#post2383206.
    I tried following:

    Code:
     livestreamer hds://http://pmd.dittotv1.com.edgesuite.net/draco/shows/Zee_Marathi/Ka_Re_Durava/March/31032015/Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_31032015_864.mp4" best -o Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_195.ts
    I get the following error.

    C:\PHP>livestreamer hds://http://pmd.dittotv1.com.edgesuite.net/draco/shows/Zee_Marathi/Ka_Re_Durava/March/31032015/Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_31032015_864.mp4" best -o Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_195.ts
    [cli][info] Found matching plugin stream for URL hds://http://pmd.dittotv1.com.edgesuite.net/draco/shows/Zee_Marathi/Ka_Re_Durava/March/31032015/Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_31032015_864.mp4 best -o Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_195.ts
    error: Unable to open URL: http://pmd.dittotv1.com.edgesuite.net/draco/shows/Zee_Marathi/Ka_Re_Durava/March/31032...032015_864.mp4 (403 Client Error: Forbidden)

    Could this be an Authentication error?

  4. That's incorrect. Don't use livestreamer with the direct http mp4 url. Also, you need to use the entire url, like this...
    Code:
    http://pmd.dittotv1.com.edgesuite.net/draco/shows/Zee_Marathi/Ka_Re_Durava/March/31032015/Ka_Re_Durava_Episode_31032015_100.mp4?hdnea=st=1428012867~exp=1428014367~acl=%2F%2A~hmac=1542223765f5f527476746dc80f40d120c74b6272e0358844da97b41669bf1e4
    Just paste it into the address bar of the browser or downloader of your choice. Change _100.mp4 to _864.mp4 for highest quality, but keep the rest the same.

    Don't use the above example, get a fresh copy of the url from the source page yourself, everything between the quotes in the source, like the example above.

    Thanks so much, nullacht.

    I stand by the "That's incorrect" portion of my statement, since the statement is referring to Melbtiger's command line usage...

    livestreamer hds://....[progressive HTTP url]

    Surely, nullacht, you would agree that this is an incorrect usage?

    I could also stand by the "Don't use livestreamer with the direct http mp4 url" portion of my statement because this statement is clearly not in the declarative mood but rather the imperative mood. The statement is a recommendation, not a statement of fact. For simplicity's sake, I think it is a good recommendation.

    If I were to revise the statement from an imperative mood to a declarative mood, I would have probably said "You don't need to use livestreamer with the direct http mp4 url".

    Thanks ponen and nullacht.

    ponen, i did rightly understood the meaning of "incorrect" and I am sure nullacht as well now. Your solution did worked for me and it was easy for a novice person like me. Thx again.

    nullacht, thanks to you for explaining in detail & yes the livestreamer command did worked for me. I want to know more about these protocols now and also how to use them.

    To All, While this is my first adventure into these streaming protocols, I just want to know few basic things about them.

    1. What factor decides which protocol needs to be used? In the case above it was livestreamer, but why cannot we use HDS? (does m3u8, f4m....play any role in this?) Is there any simple basic rule to start with in order to differentiate these protocols just by looking at the video source url or anything else in source?
