Hi! I hope someone can help me cause I have been unable to get it. To access it you need a vpn cause it's only available from the US (https://fxnow.fxnetworks.com/shows/breeders/video/most-recent/vdka17889836)
I'm trying to download a video that has a hidden m3u8 link. The manifest seems to be an mpd file:
When I try to download that directly with youtube-dl and ffmpeg it fails with "bad request"HTML Code:https://content.uplynk.com/eefa2bbb29844f82b69f82c0ee7d7a62.mpd?cqs=qgfb9hZpdX-pMi_bhDS8A_EdO5eePM0lWq4XIwm6V4v5wa3z3oNRidhxipG0SKQH76O7j6jxCB_RWQMOFBGoHP96SffKUMwW1Ruz2YhyASrdh_MrHgBgzewFE_ewEYIjB9Seq9MZgJ4Vlq2neYbtajLslDTD-VPIOibtZBoZEBp2ZqRcOyB1zD5DdWM5Zx1qgrPhtICd-6Y0IJ33Yfn-euG-_2Hz5LGNsImHmHjqlIOmyUujHSqVQ4pIZgBQTTjaDYDvwsyUjLmpxORFyeiavhncRLh3vTw-uu0Pn0_DRycdhFSvu9H9TAkni8BJ-3qKevIp4g680BqwTSC8wcSTTbxuQ3kvMsLQxpQpvIdXa-JF5smZqrXccYntwKt2BbK517dsiSNpTlxJuhwUWCUHoYfXFvvK34LbUgTRmZAqc4jV5mtTweXTr8dLXCAmpm4BHvhy7cRWHohf3NbKXqiKMg==&kid=20c340c0afcb40d8974759757dd9cb44
Going through the files in network tab i was able to find (from this file: https://prod.gatekeeper.us-abc.symphony.edgedatg.com/api/ws/pluto/v1/module/videoplaye...o=VDKA17889836), an m3u8 file: https://content.uplynk.com/eefa2bbb29844f82b69f82c0ee7d7a62.m3u8
And from that m3u8 I see the different resolutions etc, for instance
If I try to download that I get a bunch of "SAMPLE-AES encryption is not supported yet" and it ends like this:HTML Code:https://content-ausc3.uplynk.com/eefa2bbb29844f82b69f82c0ee7d7a62/h.m3u8
Can someone figure out how to download this?

in order to get plain aes-128 m3u8 from uplynk there must be cqs value as query string parameter with the m3u8 url. without the cqs, the uplynk m3u8 will default to sample-aes which is nothing but trouble. read old topic about uplynk and cqs for m3u8 here. did you try the fxnow url with youtube-dl?
edit: the same video clip is available on youtube in 1080p: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVDPMdbXVJ8
it looks better than the version of the video clip from fxnow downloaded with youtube-dl, which is only 720p. you might be better off just to download the youtube version.

Thanks for the information about the cqs value. I had no idea and will look at that other post more closely. I tried following it but it became a bit confusing. (I did try with youtube-dl and the fx network link but it didn't work).
However, it's so good that it's on yt! I feel silly that I haven't checked that first before getting more technical.
Thanks so much for your help!!
