    I have a friend who's son graduated this past fall from High School. The school streamed the graduation on thecube.com, and she asked me if I could get her a copy of the ceremony. I've been trying for the past several hours - following countless methods that never worked out - and I'm just about to call it a defeat. I thought I would ask here if anyone might have some specific instructions on how to download the following video:

    http://thecube.com/event/south-jefferson-high-school-2015-graduation-ceremo-513914

    Thanks to the advice on another thread from user 'aazerty' I was able to ascertain that the file is an m3u8 file, and even found the playlist.m3u8 file. Here it is:

    https://s3.amazonaws.com/hsc-main/assets/4351170/4351170-playlist.m3u8

    But I have not been able to get any further. Any help with figuring out how to download this video would be greatly appreciated!

  2. you can use youtube-dl

    open a command prompt copy & paste (you can specify the output directory by replacing the path, right now it's set to C:\)

    Code:
    youtube-dl https://s3.amazonaws.com/hsc-main/assets/4351170/4351170-playlist.m3u8 -o "C:\grad.mp4"

    Hi poisondeathray,

    Thank you for the guidance! I've been working on you solution for a couple of hours and haven't been able to get it to work yet. Not sure what I am doing wrong, but I will try to figure it out tomorrow. I went ahead and got a GUI front end - YouTubeDLG - as I'm not terribly sophisticated with the command line interface. I was able to get that software to work on YouTube vids, but not the one I want yet.

    Again, thank you and I'll try again tomorrow!

    Thanks!

  4. What is not working exactly ? Is there an error message ? The link and command works fine here



    If you don't have permission (e.g. you are not logged in as administrator), you might not be able to write to the C: drive

    Run the command prompt from an administrator account, or change the path of the output file to another drive

    Or are you having problems with command line usage ?

    The problem that I keep having is actually with the link to the m3u8 file itself. Here is the error that I am receiving:

    So it looks like a "Could not send HEAD request" error to the website. Is that what you would say after looking at that message?

    Thanks!

  6. I don't know, it's working here


    EDIT: It looks like you didn't copy & paste the address correctly . Sometimes there are display problems with some browsers. Just edit the https address to the one you originally gave in the 1st post

    You only have the first set of numbers 4351170
    But it should be: 4351170/435117

    Hi poisondeathray,

    I haven't given up on this yet, and I am making some progress.

    The problem I was having before is because I didn't have ffmpeg running. So I figured that out and almost got as far as you did!

    At this point I'm getting an error here:

    ERROR: ffmpeg exited with code 1
    So the error is at the bottom: c:\grad.mp4.part: Invalid argument

    I feel like this is something simple, but I can't put my finger on it. And it looks like an error coming from ffmpeg.

    Any idea of what I'm doing wrong here?

    Thanks!

  8. It might be that you have "grad.file" in the commandline, not "grad.mp4" , or it might be the permissions issue mentioned earlier about writing to the "c" drive if you are not logged in as administrator or using an elevated prompt

    That was just my t/s efforts. I have tried .mp4, I've tried leaving it blank. Just trying to see if I can eliminate the error message.

  10. Are you logged in as administrator ? Try doing it from an elevated command prompt, or writing output file to another drive

    Just wanted to let you know that I was finally able to get it downloaded. The last issue was an issue with running the CL interface as Admin.

    I really appreciate all your help on this. Thanks for your expertise very much, no way I could have done that on my own.

    Props to you.
