    Yes, usually. On rare occasions I've seen youtube-dl download something less than the highest quality by default. If that happens you can use the -F switch to see what streams are available:

    Code:
    C:\>youtube-dl -F https://www.cbc.ca/republicofdoyle/episodes/season2/live-and-let-doyle
    [cbc.ca] live-and-let-doyle: Downloading webpage

    Then pick which stream(s) you want with the -f switch:

    Code:
    C:\>youtube-dl -f http-2610 https://www.cbc.ca/republicofdoyle/episodes/season2/live-and-let-doyle
    Sometimes the video and audio are different streams so you have to specify both with a "+" between them. Something like:

    Code:
    C:\>youtube-dl -f 135+140 URL...

  3. I got an m3u8 URL with a browser's Developer Tools (F12, Network tab). Then

    Code:
    youtube-dl "https://cbcvott-a.akamaihd.net/p//38e815a-012931fcf89/CBC_DOCS_SPECIALS_SHINERS-v2-26193977/CBC_DOCS_SPECIALS_SHINERS-v2-26193977__desktop.m3u8?cbcott=st=1591274512~exp=1591360912~acl=/*~hmac=ac391f2d832a7f3bbdaaf43162a0f6c9c9003884a90650581a7037dee1696960"

  5. youtube-dl works for me. Get the latest version just in case and use the -F switch to see all formats, then the -f to select just like jagabo says above.

  7. I wonder if something has changed. I'm using HLS Downloader to get this movie https://gem.cbc.ca/media/docs-special-presentation/season-1/episode-12/38e815a-00d41011c5b, but it's coming with no audio. It seems like the audio comes through all in small chunks of AAC files. Does anybody know how to fix that?

    does the video play ok ?? run the video link through youtube-dl and run youtube-dl -F https://gem.cbc.ca/media/docs-special-presentation/season-1/episode-12/38e815a-00d41011c5b and see what video formats it has.

  10. The easiest way is to use a third party downloader, which can download through a pasted link, or by searching, for example dvdfab youtube downloader.
