    Many thanks for your solution!

    I understand that tvdownloader is a GUI for (modified) youtube-dl and ffmpeg, so maybe you are using other versions?

    Moreover you are using a different URL
    Where do you get this URL? It is not in the source of the url

  2. Where do you get this URL? It is not in the source of the url
    I will explain my friend. I dont know what O/S you are using so can only explain for Windows. I am using Win7 x64 SP1. Firefox v.61.0.2 x64 (updating turned off to remain at this version). You are obviously not happy to use a command line as you are using a GUI which I have no experience of, or need of, but you asked how I obtained the url and downloaded the video. Maybe you could load that url into your GUI prog (?) Or would it download the 'best' version (?) I really couldn't say or comment, sorry....

    I use youtube-dl from here http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html You need to download "Windows.exe"
    I use ffmpeg for Windows from here - https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ download correct version for your O/S.
    Extract the zeranoe package, look for folder named "bin" and copy all 3 files from inside it (ffmpeg.exe ffprobe.exe & ffplay.exe) and paste them into the SAME FOLDER as you have Youtube-dl (in my case this is C:/Program Files (x86).

    Start command prompt. (If you don't know how then go no further).

    Check youtube-dl is up to date with this command - note uppercase U. It will either tell you it is up to date with the latest build reference or if an update is available it will automatically update itself.

    Code:
    youtube-dl -U
    Go to your webpage in Firefox https://www.vrt.be/vrtnu/a-z/r-k--eredienst/2018/r-k--eredienst-s2018a16/ and start to play the video and then hit F12 key to view the 'Developer Tools' window.
    In the "Filter Urls" box type in m3u or m3u8 (does not matter) RED arrow (1) and hit F5 key (Refresh page) - important.



    Now you will see m3u8 entry (2). Single click on this and look to far right of Network traffic window you will see the url that the m3u8 is requesting (3). Highlight ALL of it; note some of it is obscured.

    Now go back to command prompt and issue this to obtain available formats. Note uppercase F:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -F https://ondemand-vrt.akamaized.net/content/vod/vid-920cd922-f51b-4e1e-b3fd-8b16a39e458c-CDN_5/vid-920cd922-f51b-4e1e-b3fd-8b16a39e458c-CDN_5_nodrm_8fb3cab7-8b9f-4f23-9fe6-dcc56af0990a.ism/.m3u8


    Now to grab the 'best' quality video issue this command - now note lowercase f

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 2201 https://ondemand-vrt.akamaized.net/content/vod/vid-920cd922-f51b-4e1e-b3fd-8b16a39e458c-CDN_5/vid-920cd922-f51b-4e1e-b3fd-8b16a39e458c-CDN_5_nodrm_8fb3cab7-8b9f-4f23-9fe6-dcc56af0990a.ism/.m3u8
    Done (was not fast though).

    PS if you load the correct url into tvwhatsitsname and it doesn't work, please do not complain to me ; )

    Dear Xplorr,

    have you got any idea what's happening when the 403 error and the "forbidden" part appears? It happens in 80% of the programs on VRTnu.be.

    Thank you!

    Error Message
    ERROR: Unable to download JSON metadata: HTTP Error 404: Not Found (caused by HTTPError());
    please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug .
    Make sure you are using the latest version;
    type youtube-dl -U to update.
    Be sure to call youtube-dl with the --verbose flag and include its complete output.
    Checking youtube-dl version:
    PS C:\program files (x86)\tvdownloader> .\youtube-dl --version
    2018.07.21-custom
    Do I need to get another youtube-dl as suggested?
    Or is it simply impossible to download this program?
    I tested your url https://www.vrt.be/vrtnu/a-z/r-k--eredienst/2018/r-k--eredienst-s2018a16/
    and it downloads perfectly with the latest version of TVDownloader.
    Make sure you use the latest version and that you logon.
    Also geo-restrictions may cause problems.
    I also noticed that some url's that don't download, perfectly download at a later moment.

    I used the latest version of TVDownloader 1.17.

    I always logon. If you don't logon, the error message is different:
    Code:
    ERROR: This video is only available for registered users. Use --username and --password or --netrc to provide account credentials.

    That seems to be the case. I tried it now, and it worked.
    Thanks for your reply and for your good work.

Another user seems to have the same problem. I've had it since the beginning of August. Retries are of no avail, it's always the same programs that cause the "forbidden" error.

    I suppose your URL is https://www.vrt.be/vrtnu/a-z/catching-a-killer--a-bullet-through-the-window/2017/catch...gh-the-window/
    (please specify URL in future questions).
    I tested here, without any problem.
    ps. seems you have already downloaded it ("E:\Users\Downloads\Catching a killer - a bullet through the window.m3u8 has already been downloaded")
    Please remove remains of previous download
    Also try playing beginning of url in browser to check if you can view it there.

    Indeed, that was one of a large series of undownloadable URLs. I've cleaned the cache, reinstalled TVDownloader, even tried with a more recent version of youtube-dl, but in most cases I keep getting the 403 error: forbidden. It has something to do with the f4m manifest that cannot be downloaded. Only a tiny .m3u8-file is extracted. Even if I remove this tiny file, I still cannot download. Another example: https://www.vrt.be/vrtnu/a-z/vihta/2017/vihta/

    Before August, everything worked fine and nothing has been modified in my configuration. It seems to me that all programs not made specifically by VRT are "forbidden".

  9. I have a similar kind of error:


    I have the latest version of youtube-dl and TV-downloader. Is this some new kind of protection?

    Hi, I'm get this error when trying to download a video:

    Code:
    [generic] 1o-parte-curso-de-juego-vs-recreacionales-1-04h: Requesting header
    WARNING: Falling back on generic information extractor.
    [generic] 1o-parte-curso-de-juego-vs-recreacionales-1-04h: Downloading webpage

    Presione una tecla para continuar . . .
    This is the URL of the page where the video is located: https://zerospoker.com/videos/1o-parte-curso-de-juego-vs-recreacionales-1-04h/

    You have to be logged in and previously bought the video. In such case when you access that page instead of a "BUY" button you can see the video.

    I have bought it and when trying to download I use my credentials but the error above occurs.

    Any help, please ?

    I have the exact same problem, started in August too, and nothing seems to help. The issue also occurs on all my computers, not just one.

    Indeed, I tried downloading the "forbidden" URLs using other browsers, other computers, other Windows versions, other IP addresses, ... reinstalled almost everything except Windows itself, but I still get the manifest 403 error. I've been looking everywhere to find a solution for this error, like wiping the cache for youtube-dl, but nothing solves this problem.

    Yup sadly VTM/Q2 (everything from Medialaan) is ****ed at the moment, GemistDownloader doesn't download them either because it's riddled with DRM which is illegal or very hard to crack. RIP
