  1. Hi. I use youtube-dl for when I want a permanent copy of a BBC show - anything on the BBC iPlayer is downloadable. However, I've just discovered that youtube-dl won't do the same with Channel 4's 'on demand' service. Before I go through what could be a lengthy trial and error process, I wonder if anyone here can tell me of an alternative downloader that they know will work with Channel4/All4?

    Here's a sample link, although it may not work for you as I had to sign in to get it:
    https://www.channel4.com/programmes/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown/on-demand/67844-010

    My grateful thanks in advance.

    It's DRM protected. You can get an encrypted .mp4 file,but you'll need a decryption key to decode it....

  3. Thanks for that. Out of interest, what are you using to get the encrypted mp4?

    Why does it work in the browser then?

    Also, why can the Scene do WEB-DL of TV/Movies but noobs can't?
