Hello, this is my first post. When I have some trouble, I usually tend to work out the solution by myself. However, in this case I can't seem to find anything that works. So I hope someone can give me some help. I will start by saying that I am not that tech-savvy: to download files from streaming services I use video downloadhelper, youtube-dl GUI, and some online services. The only command-line downloader application I use is ANNIE (for youku and bilibili) which is fairly easy to use.
To my problem now; I can't download video files from an obscure site: http://126.96.36.199/play/72694 (it looks like a mirror of the original one). I tried all the applications i know. Video downloadhelper detects the chunks of the files (even of multiple resolutions) but I cannot download it (i use chrome), it simply tells me "file doesn't exist". That's the first time it happens with video downloadhelper. I tried with the developer tools but there is no m3u8 file. I took a look at the HTML code and found out that the files are probably streamed from youku (I found the typical youku ID), but when I typed in the address bar the typical youku link (http://v.youku/v_show/id_the ID I found in the HTML code) it gives me error 404. I am really at a dead end. I'd really appreciate if someone could give some advice or make some suggestion. Thanks!
This is the list of the files (episodes of an old Japanese show) I'd like to download:
130206 - 130327 - 130509 - 130516 - 130530 - 130606 - 130620 - 130704 - 130718 - 131010 - 131031 - 131114 - 131212

Thanks for your help, LZAA. I understand that you usually upload the files other members request and that's very kind of you. However, it would be much of use if you could kindly explain (step by step) how to download from the site since I have many files to be downloaded.
Moreover, I am sorry to say (maybe I didn't explain clearly) that the file you uploaded was not among the one listed above. You have to click on the corresponding date to open the right file. Sorry it was my fault. Below I rewrote the list in http format.
Finally, while I really appreciate your efforts to (partially) fulfill my request, I think it would be way much easier and less demanding for you (or at least I hope) if you could explain how to do it, unless you're willing to upload all the files I need which I understand it may be a bit of a hassle.
Here is the list in http format:

Thank you very much LZAA, this was the right file, however it was just one of those listed above. I take it that you are not willing to tell me how to download them. So what can I do about the rest of the files? Since you're not willing to share your "secrets", could you at least download and upload them for me (at the best resolution available)?? You can upload them one at a day if it's too annoying to download them all at once. I really hope you can lend me a hand!
Thank you very much again!!
LZAA never explains how he/she does it. He/she claims it's not a screen recording, but it may be.
LZAA doesn't screen record. that would be a shameful embarrassment. it is easy to tell when something is screen recorded. sometimes a method is so technically complex that giving instructions is too much. or, it relies on a hole that if publicized here would cause it to just go away, and then what would be the point in describing it, so it could only work for a short time?
