  1. Hi everybody,

    Up until 2 weeks ago I could have downloaded easily with youtube-dl any free available link from NBC.

    Yesterday I got this error message for this link: "https://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/joaquin-phoenix-zoey-deutch/4038789"

    ERROR: Unable to download XML: <urlopen error [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it> (caused by URLError(ConnectionRefusedError(10061, 'No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it', None, 10061, None),))

    I tried to uninstall all relevant programs that I've installed since my last try, but no luck.

    Now, any Youtube video is still downloading with this command, but this type of link from NBC, not anymore.

    Any clue, guys?

    Thanks

    Are you behind a VPN? Cause that's the only thing that could cause it.
    I tried https://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/joaquin-phoenix-zoey-deutch/4038789 had no issues downloading it with youtube-dl.

  6. Still stuck here...

    I just downloaded any random youtube video, but the above mentioned is not working.

    Am I suppose to update the ffmpeg presets or smth?

    Thanks

    There's nothing wrong with Youtube-DL or FFMPEG .
    It's your internet connection:
    Code:
    [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
    This is a windows specific error. It means there's something wrong with your connection. Either you are using a proxy or are behind a VPN.
    If you're not, check your IP settings,sometimes the problem can be with localhost set to 127.0.0.0

    Hi,

    I am using a proxy that allows me to watch the program but not to download it anymore.

    It's strange, because I was using the same proxy 2 weeks ago and I could have download anything.

    OK,turn off the proxy, (going on NBC.com should say that content is not available for you) and just add --proxy in youtube-dl command instead (find the one that works)
    E.g. i just tried 2 ,one worked,the other one did not:

    Code:
    C:\youtube-dl>youtube-dl --proxy "http://149.28.235.95:3128" -F "https://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/joaquin-phoenix-zoey-deutch/4038789"

    This should work at this moment to download 1080p video:
    youtube-dl --proxy "http://149.28.235.95:3128" "https://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/joaquin-phoenix-zoey-deutch/4038789"
    If proxy stops working,you can check for free active ones here to add to youtube-dl commandline:
