    I've been trying to download this video here:

    https://www.virginmediatelevision.ie/player/show/1541/148752/0/Ireland's-Jihadis:-True-Lives

    Used a Firefox addon called The Stream Detector to get the HLS link.
    It detected this:

    https://secure-cf-c.ooyala.com/0wamhhZzE66_8IaX_g83IiI2DlmZqkD9/1/dash/1.mpd

    It also provides you with the code to download the file.

    Code:
    youtube-dl --no-part --restrict-filenames "https://secure-cf-c.ooyala.com/0wamhhZzE66_8IaX_g83IiI2DlmZqkD9/1/dash/1.mpd"
    The result I get is:

    Code:
    [generic] 1: Requesting header
    WARNING: Falling back on generic information extractor.
    [generic] 1: Downloading webpage
    [generic] 1: Extracting information
    ERROR: No video formats found; 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 also just tried

    Code:
    youtube-dl -F https://secure-cf-c.ooyala.com/0wamhhZzE66_8IaX_g83IiI2DlmZqkD9/1/dash/1.mpd
    I got the same result.
    Do you think there is some copy protection preventing the download?
    Thanks.

  2. Do you think there is some copy protection preventing the download?
    Nah, youtube-dl is preventing you DL it, it DL's fine with Streamlink; but you are correct in the assumption its copy protected.

    Edit: You can set 'The Stream Detector' FF addon to create either a Streamlink, ffmpeg or a youtube-dl syntax for you via the dropdown box in the Settings.

    Thanks, Tried Steamlink. I just got a 740MB .ts file that looks like 45 minutes of this.



    Is that DRM? Is there anything I can do about it?

    Well, I'd like to be able to get videos from that website when ever I like.
    It's the only non-tax payer funded tv channel in Ireland.
    I stick up small clips on youtube sometimes of political/news shows for commentary.
    Currently I am screen-recording them so the quality isn't as good and it takes longer.
    But why do you ask?
