  4. Use one of those link with ffmpeg.

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i http://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:vh1.com:e5c08d6c-8b87-11e6-bfd4-0026b9414f30/5a571a1b-cc4c-4bc5-b0a2-caf5aa1647a1/384x216_293/playlist.m3u8?proxy=true -codec copy output.ts
    Or with youtube-dl

    Code:
    youtube-dl http://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:vh1.com:e5c08d6c-8b87-11e6-bfd4-0026b9414f30/5a571a1b-cc4c-4bc5-b0a2-caf5aa1647a1/384x216_293/playlist.m3u8

    Viacom seamless hls playlists should be avoided since they contain interspersed ad segments of varying and disparate quality compared to the content.

    This works fine in an online hls player, but not as much for a continuous video file.

    If nothing but the seamless playlist is available, the best solution for downloading is to edit a local copy of the playlist into separate playlists for each "act" of content (and discard all of the ad blocks). After each act is downloaded into a separate file, they can be joined if desired.

  7. I aborted the downloads after a bit and didn't notice that they would choke after a while. Ponens is right -- if you download the m3u8 file you'll see the segments, each with a new decryption key. I guess the downloaders can't handle that automatically yet.

    Got it! I downloaded the mu38 file and got the new decryption key but how do i use that on my downloading program?

  9. What about this?

    As mentioned in post #6, the best way to download a seamless playlist is to edit the playlist and use it locally.

    For this video, here is an example of how to edit the playlist: e5c08d6c-8b87-11e6-bfd4-0026b9414f30.zip

    Copy ffmpeg into the same folder with the edited playlists. Then run ffmpeg for each edited playlist;
    Code:
    ffmpeg.exe -allowed_extensions ALL -protocol_whitelist "file,http,https,tcp,tls,crypto" -i "act1.m3u8" -c copy "act1.ts"
    
    ffmpeg.exe -allowed_extensions ALL -protocol_whitelist "file,http,https,tcp,tls,crypto" -i "act2.m3u8" -c copy "act2.ts"
    
    and so on, through act9

    Okay so i get the editing playlist part but can you run down how to download the playlist with ffmpeg. Do i copy what you just coded? "allowed_extensions ALL -protocol_whitelist "file,http,https,tcp,tls,crypto" Feel free to message me if you don't want to explain it public.

    Sorry. I get the editing the playlist part. When it comes to downloading the "acts" do i just copy and paste this "-allowed_extensions ALL -protocol_whitelist "file,http,https,tcp,tls,crypto" -i "act1.m3u8" -c copy "act1.ts" after copy and pasting ffmpeg on the same folder?

    It is the same type of command line code as shown in post #5, which you said that you were able to execute.

    I've tested out the example one you sent but it's coming out wrong.

    I'm out of ideas. It looks like maybe you didn't extract all of the files from the zip into the same folder, or that you aren't running the command prompt within the folder that contains all those files. Can't say for sure, but you probably should abandon any further attempts at this method.

    I see it works well ffplay and its a whole 41 min episode (which is what the episode length is) anyway to download this?

    I was able to download the entire video using Streamlink and ventoux's URL. I didn't even need the user-agent string:

    Code:
    streamlink "http://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:vh1.com:e5c08d6c-8b87-11e6-bfd4-0026b9414f30/607e4aa7-f47a-4f14-b85a-7fbd1731f93d/1280x720_3020/playlist.m3u8" best -o output.mp4
    The resulting mp4 file was about 932 MB. It would play in MPCHC wouldn't seek properly -- the timeline showed only 30 seconds but it continued playing to the end. A quick remux to mkv with ffmpeg resulted in a full video that played and seeked with no problems.

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i output.mp4 -codec copy output.mkv
