  1. I'm trying to download from ARDMediathek (requires being in Germany).

    Example here :

    The download goes fine but always freezes at around 95%. The download just stops downloading but does not exit the downloading mode and no error message is shown. If I kill CMD and open it up again, I can force it to continue downloading with -c, but the file that results is unplayable. It says no codec is available even though the file is .mp4.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  3. Thanks for the replies. Wanted to try it out before replying. So the retry infinite thing worked. I think what was happening before was that the file was getting corrupt when I would force close CMD because of the stop in download. Now, everything downloads fine. Just in time, too. Some of the events are only available until today, so glad I was able to get them when I could. Thanks!
