  1. I'm trying to download some videos from Cartoon Network, but I'm not having much luck with it, and figured I'd ask around here to see if anyone could offer some advice.

    One of the videos in question: http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/video/ninjago/the-hands-of-time-episode.html

    I've already got Video DownloadHelper (which does have a Chrome extension - I don't know why it's marked as Firefox only) and Adobe HDS / HLS Video Saver added to Chrome, and they've given me a lot of help for locating the M3U8s I need. I want to download it in 720p quality or higher, so I'm only showing the relevant links that the extensions gave me.

    Video DownloadHelper gave me two URLs: the "raw" M3U8 (labeled layer6), and another one (also called layer6) which includes what I assume is access information or something similar.

    HLS Video Saver gave me three potential links: the "accessorized" link that Video DownloadHelper had, a second potentially higher quality link (due to it being called layer8 instead of layer6 - Cartoon Network has the videos listed as layer1, layer2, etc. in ascending order from 240p, 360p, etc.), and a third "master" link (which presumably manages all of the video sizes - i.e. allowing the stream to switch between qualities depending on the connection).

    Neither Video DownloadHelper nor HLS Video Saver can download them - Video DownloadHelper marks them as HLS streams (which it can't download), and HLS Video Saver (which I've used to download HLS streams from other sites before - I've found that it's easy to use works very well, and I'm somewhat surprised it's not listed in the tools section) comes up with zero parts to download when it tries to start. I've had the same luck (read: zero) with other programs, including m3u8x, Internet Download Manager, etc. to no avail. And before you ask, yes, I've done FFMPEG as well (that was my first approach), but it still can't download AES encrypted streams. However, it was still helpful - it revealed that the encryption method is SAMPLE-AES rather than AES-128.

    If anybody has some suggestions for how to get this, I'd appreciate it - I've searched all over the forum but I haven't found anything that's helped. :/

  2. Still doesn't work unfortunately

    It seems the site changed around which videos were unlocked, and the one on that page no longer had the encryption (since it wasn't a full episode). I ran the command with a new freshly-unlocked episode and it returned the same error - namely, that SAMPLE-AES isn't supported by ffmpeg yet.

    The new m3u8 url provided by Video DownloadHelper is http://tve-vod.cdn.turner.com/toon/b8055e0381e605aa83851e3a0a22d08e00000000/layer6/layer6_pt.m3u8
    Meanwhile, HLS Video Saver gave me this: http://tve-vod.cdn.turner.com/toon/b8055e0381e605aa83851e3a0a22d08e00000000/?hdnea=exp...layer6_pt.m3u8
    Neither of them work with the command.

    Works for me. Different version of ffmpeg.exe ?

  4. No, the code for the one LZAA is correct - it worked just fine. However, it's not what I wanted - THIS code for a different full-length episode, from one of the links I provided in my previous post, doesn't work, because ffmpeg can't decode SAMPLE-AES:

    ffmpeg -i http://tve-vod.cdn.turner.com/toon/b8055e0381e605aa83851e3a0a22d08e00000000/layer6/layer6_pt.m3u8 -c copy video.ts

  5. Hello. I'm very new to the site and have been downloading videos mostly with no problems for years.

    However, I am having the same exact problem as the OP. The only difference is I'm trying to retrieve a few videos from the Adult Swim site.

    I've tried ffmpeg, different browsers, and different video downloading extensions without success.

    I also tried to perform the following function on ffmpeg, but it doesn't work:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i http://tve-vod.cdn.turner.com/adultswim/5219209fb9b00585da914ff30104c6e200000000/layer6/layer6_pt.m3u8 -c copy video.ts
    Error Message:
    Code:
    [hls,applehttp @ 05e07960] SAMPLE-AES encryption is not supported yet
    [hls,applehttp @ 05e07960] Failed to open segment of playlist 0
    I also used Flash Video Downloader and it stored .ts files in a "tmp" folder.
    But when I tried to compile and convert the .ts files into a single .ts and .mp4, I got an unreadable, datamosh mess!

    I opened the .m3u8 file(s) in Notepad. This is what I got:
    Code:
    #EXTM3U
    #EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:6
    #EXT-X-VERSION:5
    #EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:0
    #EXT-X-PLAYLIST-TYPE:VOD
    #EXT-X-FAXS-CM:[a bunch of gibberish omitted]
    #EXT-X-KEY:METHOD=SAMPLE-AES,URI="faxs://faxs.adobe.com",IV=0xXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX,KEYFORMAT="com.adobe.access",KEYFORMATVERSIONS="1"
    #EXTINF:6.0060,
    seg-0_00000.ts.....
    .....
    ....
    ...
    ...
    ...
    #EXTINF:6.0727,
    seg-0_00116.ts
    #EXT-X-ENDLIST

    I heard that this works, but I have no clue how to use it! - https://github.com/selsta/hlsdl

  6. youtube-dl works on all adult swim videos. If a particular video requires provider authentication, the authentication parameters can be used as command line arguments with youtube-dl.

    How do you use youtube-dl? Are any programs required in order for me to use it? I mainly work with GUI and basic command line coding. I also heard of netrc, but it seems confusing to create the file and activate via command.

    Playback videos like the above function like this:
    Code:
    Run Adobe Flash (Allow) > Select Cable Provider (Required) > Login > Authenticate via Adobe Flash > Encryption On > Access Granted
    Yesterday I used TVDownloader 1.16 by XploRR, typed my Cable Provider username and password, received the following error message:

    [AdultSwim] video-name: Downloading webpage
    [AdultSwim] xxxXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX: Downloading XML
    ERROR: This video is only available for users of participating TV providers. Use --ap-mso to specify Adobe Pass Multiple-system operator Identifier and --ap-username and --ap-password or --netrc to provide account credentials.
    Press any key to continue . . .


    And when I try to type anything, the command box disappears without giving me a chance. What am I doing wrong?!

    Also tried this and receive the same error message as above...
    Code:
    youtube-dl --ap-mso Comcast_SSO https://www.adultswim.com/videos/showname/videoname --ap-username XFINITYUSERNAME --ap-password XFINITYPASSWORD --username XFINITYUSERNAME --password XFINITYPASSWORD

    Am I doing something wrong?

  11. I chose this video from the adult swim site:
    http://www.adultswim.com/videos/mr-pickles/mommas-boy/
    I used youtube-dl to get available resolutions:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -F http://www.adultswim.com/videos/mr-pickles/mommas-boy/
    I chose 640 resolution from the list. Final code to download:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -f ipad-664 http://www.adultswim.com/videos/mr-pickles/mommas-boy/
    Link to video:
    https://files.videohelp.com/u/61125/mp.mp4
    Link to subtitles:
    https://files.videohelp.com/u/61125/mp.srt

    If I try to download the url:
    then I get this youtube-dl error message:
    ERROR: This video is only available for users of participating TV providers. Use
    --ap-mso to specify Adobe Pass Multiple-system operator Identifier and --ap-use
    rname and --ap-password or --netrc to provide account credentials.
    I don't know how to deal with this error. If you can figure it out, please pm me the exact youtube-dl code to download. I'm not interested in the video, but I want to have an exact example pattern of how to use login credentials with youtube-dl. The above youtube-dl error message, although useful, is not enough for me to figure out the exact download code syntax.

    The Mr.Pickle video above doesn't require cable login, but the Orel one does. It's easier to download videos that do not require TV provider authorization. Even after I log in with my cable provider I still have problems.

  13. Browser -> F12. Find the network request with the address „http://tve-vod.cdn.turner.com/adultswim/f688f9b0cbd34004fb02c5580342d08f00000000/layer...ayer6_pt.m3u8“. Look in the „Response“ playlist content. Show part of it here.

  14. Suggestion:
    I would use youtube-dl to download Mr Pickles. Once you have successfully learned how to do that, then try to use the above youtube-dl error message and try to put in your login credentials. According to Ponens in above post #7, it is possible to use youtube-dl to do this.

    I just found out that you may have to slightly configure your network settings in order for TVDownloader and Youtube-dl to download encrypted videos.

    For xfinity users like me, we'd more than likely have to go to Network Settings, temporarily disconnect from the home WIFI network and connect to "xfinity wifi" for the method to work properly.

    I used cmd.exe with youtube-dl and typed in:
    Code:
    youtube-dl --list-formats http://www.adultswim.com/videos/moral-orel/gods-blunders --ap-mso=Comcast_SSO --ap-username=XFINITYUSERNAME --ap-password=XFINITYPASSWORD
    I was then given these options:

    I was able to download the best 480p file of medium quality. But the main problem is it's not in HD 720p format. If you look at one of the pictures I posted above, my VideoDownloadHelper add-on offered me a 720p resolution download. It seems the 720p download isn't available with TVDownloader or YouTube-dl either.

    They also offer 15 free videos, no login or subscription required;

    https://watch.boomerang.com/playlists/free-episode-playlist

    There have been a bunch of other threads that have been locked lately that also offer a combination of free and paid videos, but some members here have appointed themselves the thread locking police - and immediately contact the moderators requesting that they lock the thread. When I PM the moderator that locked the thread, informing him that the site that was being discussed also has free content, I never get any response.

    Which is why I don't participate much on this sub-forum anymore.

    I get you, but the posters don't give enough info or the actual video links at the time,so we post back regarding what we see.
    For example,the poster above asked if there's a method to download from boomerang.com . When i open that link,it asks for a login and says "start trial,then pay blah blah". That's a subscription to me.
    If he said this instead :
    Can anything be downloaded from boomerang.com free videos (no login required), link:
    https://watch.boomerang.com/playlists/free-episode-playlist
    or specifically:
    What A Night For A Knight episode:
    https://watch.boomerang.com/watch/1/1
    Then it's allright. I know that i don't need to search for the video myself,and since it's login-less link,i can help him.
    That's the difference. That's why threads keep getting locked,because how am i suppose to know that there are free videos too? If you give the correct info,there shouldn't be any problems.

    DRM is another reason that the "helpful" forum members have asked (in recent months) to have threads locked.

    But there are hundred of old threads where, instead of locking the thread, members would suggest to use a screen recorder (as the only option).

    In the particular case of these free boomerang videos, no-DRM versions of the videos will be sent if a particular SmartTV user agent is used.
