Every time I attempt to download videos that require a cable provider login, I get this error message below:
I tried the following formats:

Comcast MSO login has been broken since last year. You will have to wait until someone codes the fix.
Post an issue on the official youtube-dl github page and ask if it can be fixed, be sure to include your log.
Some sites that require cable provider login may work with --cookies. Login with you browser and extract the cookie. Then pass the cookie text file to youtube-dl. Full instructions are in the documentation section on the official youtube-dl github page.
I typed the following and received the same exact error message listed above.
youtube-dl --cookies D:\folder\cookies.txt http://www.adultswim.com/videos/joe-pera-talks-with-you/joe-pera-shows-you-iron
Another error message I received was:
[AdultSwim] joe-pera-shows-you-iron: Downloading webpage [AdultSwim] AWNfUf_ZHAeP4-pUPfOc: Downloading XML ERROR: Unable to download XML: HTTP Error 404: Not Found (caused by HTTPError()); please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug . Make sure you are using the latest version; type youtube-dl -U to update. Be sure to call youtube-dl with the --verbose flag and include its complete output.
Did anyone find a fix yet? It seems that a lot of people are having issues with certain sites and providers.
With the exception of the most recent, all of the episodes of joe-pera-talks-with-you are now available without provider authorization.
For the one that requires authorization, it looks like you'll have to do it manually. It doesn't look like a provider authorization fix for youtube-dl is just around the bend.

When youtube-dl does work with provider authentication on adultswim, it does not download the sample-aes version of the video.
There are other profiles to download, and youtube-dl uses one of those. When downloading manually (because your provider auth doesn't work), you need to request the video like youtube-dl does.
When I use the "youtube-dl -F url" command to get a list of video profiles, I'll get messages such as, "ERROR: Could not find XML element's text headline; please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug . Make sure you are using the latest version; type youtube-dl -U to update. Be sure to call youtube-dl with the --verbose flag and include its complete output."
What are the steps for manual download?
