  1. Hello, dear all.


    I could download such link using Tubedigger. But using other programs I could not.

    How can I do it using youtube-dl only? The highest resolutions available.

    Thanks for your tips!

    Best regards.

    So,since it's geoblocked (at least to me),you would need to know in which country/countries it's not geoblocked,so using this link:
    You see that it's viewable in Brazil.
    With youtube-dl now you have 2 options. Either using a brazilian VPN or trying bypassing the geo-restriction with in-built geo-bypass, or adding a proxy to the command line.
    If you use VPN,then there's nothing to add really,just call the youtube-dl with the link.
    Otherwise with no VPN
    Option #1:
    C:\youtube-dl>youtube-dl --geo-bypass-country BR
    [youtube] htVjVUXf2n4: Downloading webpage
    [youtube] htVjVUXf2n4: Downloading video info webpage
    ERROR: The uploader has not made this video available in your country.
    It works only in few % of cases (mostly with not youtube links)
    Option #2 - adding proxy from e.g.

    The code looks like:
    C:\Users\tripl\Desktop\Tools\Download tools\youtube-dl>youtube-dl --proxy
    [youtube] htVjVUXf2n4: Downloading webpage
    [youtube] htVjVUXf2n4: Downloading video info webpage
    [download] Destination: A mente do matador - Parte 1 _ Conexão Repórter (20_05_19)-htVjVUXf2n4.f136.mp4
    [download]   1.9% of 218.56MiB at 590.51KiB/s ETA 10:24
    It downloaded a 720p video to me.

    It always picks the best quality,however you can always check the best quality with -F before download:

    C:\youtube-dl>youtube-dl --proxy -F

    If you want f.e. webm 1280x720, then next time add to the command "-f 247+140" (without quotes).

    P.S. if you're not geblocked and it still doesn't work for you,yu might want to make sure you have latest youtube-dl by calling -U in the commandline

  3. @ Sviests

    Thanks a lot! Very nice tips!

    Using Tubedigger I could pick 720p video to me.

    Other programs failed to get the videos in such "specific" link.

    I have used other programs without success in such "specific" link: 4K Video Downloader ( got only video file, not sound inside ), TVideoDownloader ( only got a very small and invalid file ) and DLNow Video Downloader ( do not get any file ).

    Does it possible to find a way for the programs above work on such link? Or only using youtube-dl + your tips explained previously?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Best regards.

    Streamlink works too,but it's similar to youtube-dl.
    Also there is a VideoDownloadHelper plugin for firefox/chrome,which should download those too (only exception that you might need using an unblocking addon (like Hola plugin for firefox f.e.))

    Other than that i don't really see a chance. (for me usually youtube-dl/streamlink is fast and good enough,no need for extra work and no need for other tools.)
