  1. I would like to know if there is any way to choose the quality of the video to be downloaded with the ffmpeg command.

    I'm trying to download an .mpd file, but there are three 360p 480p and 720p qualities and the ffmpeg command by default download the lower quality.

    Which command should I use to be able to download the highest quality file?

    I'm using this command:

    ffmpeg -i "URL/File.mpd" -c copy -absf aac_adtstoasc t.mp4

    Hi

    I followed your suggestion, but ffmpeg continues downloading the worst quality file.

    Using the youtube-dl command I find three types of videos (240p f1-v1.mp4 - 480p f2-v1.mp4 and 720p f3-v1.mp4) and two audio files (f1-v1.m4a and f3-a1.m4a ).

    Which command should I use to download the best video and audio file?

    Hello aazerty. I am TeRrOkToR's brother, we are trying to solve this problem together. We tried now the command you told, but it didn't work. Have a look at the pictures attached. I tried both commands youtube-dl --hls-prefer-native and youtube-dl --hls-prefer-ffmpeg, and they didn't work. Please, do you mind if I send you a message inbox and you have a look at the website we are dealing with, so you will be able to tell us the best tool to download the videos. Thank you very much for your help.

  8. Hi all ,

    Gives all available formats :
    ===
    @echo on
    youtube-dl -F "URL/file.mpd"
    pause
    :fin
    ===

    You can read for the bestest :
    _ blabla-f3-A1 => Audio 165k
    _ blabla-f3-v1 => Video 1280 x 720

    Try "Choosed + Melting" below :
    ---
    youtube-dl -f blabla-f3-A1+blabla-f3-v1 "URL/file.mpd" -o Your_Video.mp4
    ---
    Note : replace 'blabla' by what you see on the screen !!!


    If not working means some streams are down or protected (?) .

    Cheers .
