  1. I am trying to download videos from ABC site (American Idol episodes) in HD quality. They're all .m3u8 files.
    I tried using livestreamer (without encoding, but keeping original quality) but the video quality is kinda laggy.

    Here's the link to the episode i was trying to download:

  2. Try YouTube-dl: https://www.videohelp.com/software/youtube-dl

    Then open CMD window & use this code for 1280x720:
    C:\YOUTUB~1\YOUTUB~1.EXE -f ULNK-3614 "http://abc.go.com/shows/american-idol/episode-guide/season-01/1-episode-1-auditions"

    Note: The part BOLD is where YOUTUB~1.EXE is located (on my system), so adjust for where YOUTUB~1.EXE is on your system.

    I'm a little new to Youtube dl. Was surfing the forum on how to make the Youtube-dl download links.
    Just now installed Youtube dl & was trying to download the episode using it.

    At first i located the m3u8 link of the video & checked the available qualities by using this code:

    Then i tried to download it directly using this code:

    ^But it gives me an error after downloading 0.1%: ''ERROR: unable to download video data: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden''

    Please help me what to do & how to download in best quality?

    Wow! And I thought it was a blog of programmers gathered here) So many complicated pieces show the guys ... But the most interesting is that you the author did not help an author of a post. Maybe there is a paid subscription? You did not check in details?
