    Hi guys!

    I am being able to open and watch Hotstar videos directly with my browser and one could also download with youtube-dl until it just stopped working some days ago:
    Now youtube-dl only downloads now a small video (5 seconds long) with the following text in it:

    "This version of Hotstar is no longer supported.
    Please download the latest version from the App Store. If you are unable to
    view content even after upgrading your app, please uninstall and reinstall the app.".

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    this is the video I am trying to download:
    https://www.hotstar.com/in/tv/radhakrishn/s-1695/the-classic-love-saga/1000221006
    Here is a working free vpn for you guys to test it.

    Best regards and thank you in advance

  2. Now youtube-dl only downloads now a small video
    Use The Stream Detector



    or use tubedigger

  3. Use a browser's Developer Tools to find the m3u8 URL and the referer field. Then use youtube-dl to find the resolution you want:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -F --referer "https://www.hotstar.com/in/tv/radhakrishn/s-1695/the-classic-love-saga/1000221006" "https://hsprepack.akamaized.net/videos/bharat/rakrsb/1_2/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1587912106~exp=1587912706~acl=/videos/bharat/rakrsb/1_2/*~data=ip=070887a78a2f3e22174aa6521e649523ef75ac8ecf244d8a79b8c1a7fe44-userid=29f04c5aeead1f163e39eedeec2cb443d44047fac4f2876cb6a850a0be97db70~hmac=912340d55c1b3b988edfd183799d184c81c592b24f8831b61e6b25ddfa6a9b04"
    Then use the -f switch to download that particular stream:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f 1425 --referer "https://www.hotstar.com/in/tv/radhakrishn/s-1695/the-classic-love-saga/1000221006" "https://hsprepack.akamaized.net/videos/bharat/rakrsb/1_2/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1587912106~exp=1587912706~acl=/videos/bharat/rakrsb/1_2/*~data=ip=070887a78a2f3e22174aa6521e649523ef75ac8ecf244d8a79b8c1a7fe44-userid=29f04c5aeead1f163e39eedeec2cb443d44047fac4f2876cb6a850a0be97db70~hmac=912340d55c1b3b988edfd183799d184c81c592b24f8831b61e6b25ddfa6a9b04"
    Or to just download the "best" version:

    Code:
    youtube-dl --referer "https://www.hotstar.com/in/tv/radhakrishn/s-1695/the-classic-love-saga/1000221006" "https://hsprepack.akamaized.net/videos/bharat/rakrsb/1_2/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1587912106~exp=1587912706~acl=/videos/bharat/rakrsb/1_2/*~data=ip=070887a78a2f3e22174aa6521e649523ef75ac8ecf244d8a79b8c1a7fe44-userid=29f04c5aeead1f163e39eedeec2cb443d44047fac4f2876cb6a850a0be97db70~hmac=912340d55c1b3b988edfd183799d184c81c592b24f8831b61e6b25ddfa6a9b04"

    Hi guys and thank you so much for willing to help me out with this issue

    @sysanin I tested your first solution and it worked perfectly, thank you!

    I am using the vpn I mentioned above since some weeks and it is downloading at just 170kiB/s. I could see you are getting >700KB/s - 1.10MB/s, do you live in India or could you please telll me how you do it? That'd be great

    Thank you for sharing two options, I am trying to get youtubeDigger to work, without luck until now:
    I got the stream addresses and clicked on start download but it just does not start downloading.
    there is always 0.00% under "Progress" and after some time it says "failed", I don't know what I am doing wrong.

    Still using a VPN? Mine was set to India. Maybe the link expired before you put the command line together and executed it?
