  1. So i have a VPN that i pay for and i can watch global tv shows but when i try to download with ffmpeg or any other ripping program, it doesn't let me. I don't like using "Screen Recorders".. Any suggesting?

    http://bigbrothercanada.globaltv.com/watch/episode-32

    Thanks!

  2. The video can be downloaded with livestreamer. Canadian IP needed to get m3u8 url.

    **Edit:
    The above method only applies to some video clips on the bigbrothercanada which don't have hls flashAccess drm.

    The basic format to execute livestreamer with a m3u8 url, where * is the m3u8 url:

    livestreamer "hlsvariant://*" best -o output.ts

    It seems that some of the clips there have hls with flashAccess. Avoid those.

  12. Downloading videos from the bigbrothercanada site is not as easy as I initially indicated. Some videos have drm, some don't.

    Getting the key for videos that use hls with flashAccess is not a straightforward process that lends itself to easy explanation. There aren't an enumerable series of discrete steps. Rather, it is more a case of trial and error because of the way memory is sand-boxed by flashAccess. It involves taking snapshots of memory and searching for the key. For 30+ episodes of bigbrothercanada, this could take a long time.

    Either give up, or do the long tedious work of deriving the key separately for each video. Or, just download the shorter videos using a mobile user-agent. Those don't have any drm.

    Well if that's the case how come you were able to download episode 32 quick?

  14. I don't know the criteria that the player uses to determine whether to play with drm or not. After you and another forum member posted drm logs, I tried to investigate. I have been unable to play episode 32 without drm again. I'm not in canada and I don't have a vpn. I've already spent a few hours trying to figure it out using a slow proxy. It could be a user-agent setting or alternate pid. If you want to spend some time investigating it yourself, try those.
