  1. Every time I attempt to download videos that require a cable provider login, I get this error message below:

    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.

    I tried the following formats:
    Code:
    youtube-dl -U
    youtube-dl --verbose
    youtube-dl -F url
    youtube-dl url --ap-mso=Comcast_SSO --ap-username=USERNAME --ap-password=PASSWORD
    I tried: cleaning my cache, TVDownloader, reconnecting to the Internet, restarting my computer.

    I need help to download these videos:

    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 tried this method today and it doesn't work unfortunately.

    I typed the following and received the same exact error message listed above.
    Code:
    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:

    Code:
    [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.

  4. Did anyone find a fix yet? It seems that a lot of people are having issues with certain sites and providers.
