  1. Hello, I was wondering if anyone been having any trouble getting the 1920x1080 streams from disney/abc/freeform. In the last few days they seem to have changed the way their site works it no longer gives a F4M it gives a straight M3U8, but the highest quality is 1280x720. Though if you strip all the args off the M3U8 file shows the 1920x1080 still in it, but errors. I have been googleing this to death I can't find anyone commenting or find ways to get the 1080 version.

  2. So does no one have any thoughts/Ideas or anything on this problem? Or is it just me and no one else is having this problem?

  3. Their flash player has changed from making an external kaltura request with signature (this is the "f4m" to which you refer), to instead using an enveloped swf (xml encoded as swf) that allows them to make the kaltura request on the server side and only send the result in the enveloped swf (which will eventually show up as a m3u8 link in network traffic).

    1080p still works on all public content over hls. Authenticated content can be made to work but a kaltura request with signature is required (complicated).

    Are you trying public or authenticated videos? Is your resolution set to 1920x1080 or higher (the flash player sends the screen dimensions as part of the request).

    If the video is public, post a sample link here. If it requires authentication, you'll have to investigate on your own or ask elsewhere (only public video discussion permitted here).

  4. Thank you for commenting, I have now since figured out public videos. Authenticated is now my only problem. I understand it can't be discussed here, but do you know any reason I can't view through my browser. I log into the sites click the link and I don't get a 1080p video. My monitor is 1980x1080 but I looked into the traffic data my Resolution is 1980w but my height is less because the browser is not full screen. Would this affect me not getting the higher resolution/bitrate or might it be because my bandwidth is listed as Xdsl.

    on a side note how are you doing the public I'll give you a public link, I don't do it through HLS I rarely use livestreamer or anything other then FFmpeg, which seems to stall a lot. I do them as .ts so that I get the subtitles too.

  5. I'm not sure what you mean.

    The .ts segments are components of hls. Even if you are downloading the .ts segments and decrypting and joining them manually rather than using the m3u8 playlist, the underlying system is still hls.

  9. Anyone have any luck with this? The 1080p stream (k.m3u8) is still available for all new episodes but when I try to rip it the key file in the m3u8 cannot be downloaded.

    Code:
    [https @ 000000000019e7e0] HTTP error 403 Forbidden
    Unable to open key file https://content-ause1.uplynk.com/check2?b=8b6ccffc00fc4898bbf75d6701715239&v=8b6ccffc0...6f1dc26939096d

  11. Try playing the video on your ipad and take the m3u8 url from there.

    How would we go about doing this? Or do you know how to figure out the "device id" of an iPad? I know when downloading video from Disney it calls for a device id, which a computer/browser doesn't allow the k.m3u8 file it only goes as high as j.m3u8. If we can get the device id Disney reads of an iPad, we could spoof it.
