  1. Hey everyone,
    I've been trawling around the net today trying to find a solution to this.


    I'm trying to download this video: http://www.cbc.ca/news/thenational/b-c-s-ghost-town-1.420686
    but every way I try it doesn't seem to work, tried a few people's suggestions, but found this forum and maybe someone can have a go?

    Much appreciated!
    Steve

  2. Use youtube-dl and this command line:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f best "http://link.theplatform.com/s/ExhSPC/media/ZEXS7QcWHkRf"
    That will get you a 70 MB 640x360 MP4 file. To download specific versions replace "best" with one of the bolded texts below:

    Code:
    http-312     mp4        416x234     312k
    http-571     mp4        480x270     571k
    http-859     mp4        640x360     859k  (best)

    estidog here you go. I went ahead and I downloaded it for you I uploaded it to my google drive for you to download. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzD719iWFXuSUHo1YkFUcnlqS2c/view?usp=sharing

  5. I opened the page in Internet Explorer and started the Developer Tools (F12). Back at the IE windows I pressed the play button for the video. The debugger stopped execution in the DV window. I pressed the green play button again to continue past the error. Then switched to the Network tab. I looked through the URLs for something that looked like a URL for the video. I saw a line that read:

    Code:
    http://link.theplatform.com/s/ExhSPC/media/ZEXS7QcWHkRf?mbr=true&format=SMIL&player=default-prod-vms&policy=68761604&manifest=f4m&Tracking=true&Embedded=true&formats=MPEG4,F4M,FLV,MP3
    I first tried the full URL in youtube-dl. It downloaded the file (best). Then I tried shortening the URL to just the text to the left of the question mark. That worked too. To get list of available files you can use the command

    Code:
    youtube-dl -F "URL"
    That will give you (among other things) a list like I quoted earlier.

    THANK YOU! Super helpful, have a great day.
    Crazy that none of the browser extensions and programs work for this one.

  7. I tried Adblock plus on Firefox 45.0.2 on Windows 7 and put
    theplatform
    in the search box and played video. I got
    Code:
    http://link.theplatform.com/s/ExhSPC/kqytVvKDhmf5
    and used to get available resolutions:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -F http://link.theplatform.com/s/ExhSPC/kqytVvKDhmf5
    and this to download video:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -f rtmp-859 http://link.theplatform.com/s/ExhSPC/kqytVvKDhmf5

  8. Has something changed in the last couple of months? I am trying to get the latest episodes of Kim's Convenience (http://watch.cbc.ca/kims-convenience/season-2/episode-1/38e815a-00d01e9a6e8) and Mr. D (http://watch.cbc.ca/mr-d/season-7/episode-1/38e815a-00d0071780d), but am unable to use any method to grab the episodes.
    Quote Quote  
  9. Yes, things have changed at cbc.ca. Youtube dl no longer works on the web page. You have to use a browser's developer tools (F12), find the m3u8 link, and enter that into youtube-dl. For that Kim's Convenience episode:

    Code:
    https://cbcvott-a.akamaihd.net/p//38e815a-00d01e9a6e8/CBC_KIMS_CONVENIENCE_SEASON_02_S02E01-v3-14042644/CBC_KIMS_CONVENIENCE_SEASON_02_S02E01-v3-14042644__desktop.m3u8?cbcott=st=1506558332~exp=1506644732~acl=/*~hmac=7e6607edabc696d3ce7deea5f402b40821d181d2de43e7bd3e1c8d0e5138d2cf

  10. That worked, but it didn't give me the HD version.
    Quote Quote  
  11. It got me a 1280x720 version (the highest res available). Use -F to get a list of available files, pick the ones you want.
    Quote Quote  
  12. I tried -f, but it didn't like the link you provided.
    Quote Quote  
  13. -F not -f. That will give you a list of available files. You have to be in Canada, or be using a proxy or VPN in Canada.

    Code:
    youtube-dl -F https://cbcvott-a.akamaihd.net/p//38e815a-00d01e9a6e8/CBC_KIMS_CONVENIENCE_SEASON_02_S02E01-v3-14042644/CBC_KIMS_CONVENIENCE_SEASON_02_S02E01-v3-14042644__desktop.m3u8?cbcott=st=1506558332~exp=1506644732~acl=/*~hmac=7e6607edabc696d3ce7deea5f402b40821d181d2de43e7bd3e1c8d0e5138d2cf

  14. Ah, sorry. I will give it a try with -F then.

    And to download the best quality one, i have to specify 3677 somewhere in the command line. Would it be rtmp-3677?
    Quote Quote  
  15. Code:
    youtube-dl https://...  will download the "best" video and audio, in this case it will get the descriptive audio
    youtube-dl -f 3677 https://...  will download only the 1280x720 video
    youtube-dl -f AACLC-2_0-English https://...  will download only the AAC audio, muxed into mp4
    youtube-dl -f 611+AACLC-2_0-English https://...  will download the 416x234 video and the AAC audio ,muxed into mp4
    Quote Quote  
  16. Thanks for this. I'll give it a try tonight

    EDIT: Worked wonderfully, thanks

    pretty cool!

    I would like to download some CBC olympic videos. here is one for example:

    https://olympics.cbc.ca/video/todays-events/freestyle-skiing-feb-women-moguls-qualifying/

    the specific video link

    https://olympics.cbc.ca/divaPlayer/html5/divaplayer.html?configurationFileUrl=https%3A...white-logo.svg

    any help would be awesome!

  18. Apparently, IDM works with some videos but not others. Opening ceremony would not download but the CBC olympic video you requested could be downloaded with IDM.

    I've managed to download from CBC Olympics using Link Finder from ChrisPC VideoTube Downloader Pro:
    https://www.videoyoutubedownloader.com/link-finder-engine-download-videos-from-20000-websites.html

    Note: if you don't have a CA IP, you need to use a proxy or VPN.

  24. I noticed a Kodi Addon that is in the legal repository called CBC Olympics. You may be able watch videos and perhaps there is a way to record streams through Kodi but whether that is a legal thing to do I don't know.

  25. Check that you are download the last M3U manifest URL requested by browser. Some of first ones give 403 but do not contain wanted video.
