i am using the latest version of youtube-dl but with these links I just get a 'fail' every time

http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/693047875855/Professor T. S1 Ep1 - Campus Drie Eiken
my fault somehow?
p.s. i'm using it with yt-dl dropper. maybe that's the problem. i'll take a look at just using it via command line
tried it. got an error:
C:\Users\dave> youtube-dl http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/1343598659909/One Thousand RopesUpdated youtube-dl to [SBS] 1343598659909: Downloading JSON metadata
ERROR: Unable to download JSON metadata: HTTP Error 400: Bad Request (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.
i switched off all running progs and my ipvanish and the latest cmd line told me not available at your location.
i will retry from elsewhere...
ahhh.. now there's no ffmpeg:
[download] Destination: Professor T. S1 Ep1 - Campus Drie Eiken-v9S6LxbmmNI_.mp4
ERROR: m3u8 download detected but ffmpeg or avconv could not be found. Please install one.
I went back to using yt-dl and I still couldn't get thousand ropes but I got the next one on the list so I guess that proves everything is alright.
so it was maybe working all the time but there's just a problem with thousand ropes.

hmm. thanks for that. i must be doing something wrong somewhere.
Your command line has "Updated youtube-dl to [SBS] 1343598659909: Downloading JSON metadata" in it. That will cause an error.
I can't find any show on the SBS website called One Thousand Ropes. I can see On the Ropes.
