    VRT launched an old serie from the sixties. As a collector of old tv's, I like to download the entire serie to watch it on such an old 60ies tv set.

    In the past there was no problem downloading VRT.NU streams with uniconverter on the Mac. I tried it today and it doesn't download anything.

    In this forum there's a big topic about "TVDownloader". The problem: it only works with Windows.

    Can I reach my target on some way using an iMac computer?
    A similar program like TVDownloader would be fantastic!

    Could someone advise me please?
    thanks!

    Thanks you're willing to help me, but in that case you should create an account. It's free. It's impossible to provide my login, I think it's evident...

    @ponens: I've installed it, but because of the VRT login obligation it doesn't download. Yesterday, I was out of time to search the how to. I'm not familiar with running programs in the terminal, so this is my very last option.

    @ChezBompaLawijt: I tried this also. The serie I wanted to download contains 23 episodes (Magasien btw). Using your provided site for this isn't almost possible. You have to wait 24 minutes between every download.

    All that need be supplied on the youtube-dl command line is the url to the .mpd, similar to the examples provided by laredo in post #6. Login is irrelevant when the .mpd url is used with youtube-dl.

    How do you handle sites with login?
    Looking to your nickname, let's me believe you're from Flanders. So, give it a try to download an episode of "Magesien" from VRT.nu with gemistdownloader... I used it many times in the past on my Mac, but today it doesn't work anymore.

    @ponens: I'll try this later and give the result here...

    Allright, I succeeded finally in setting up youtube-dl on my Mac.
    Could you please assist me by finding that mpd file?

    Right clicked next to the video as you suggested (had first to switch on developer tools in Safari before I succeeded in that). Next went to "netwerk", typed in mpd, refresh and playing back that video, but I don't see a link address...
    I add a screen shot. What goes wrong here...

    If you refresh the page again it should appear if not try Chrome or Firefox this is wat it looks like after u copied the link u can use youtube-dl with this command for the best quality video command >> youtube-dl.exe -f best https://ondemand-cf-vrt.akamaized.net/content/vod/vid-14d10194-1218-4cc5-ae97-efa98598...9176d.ism/.mpd or the easy way just copy and paste the link in tvdownloader simple as that

    Indeed, with Firefox Mac edition it also works.
    I will try it tomorrow morning on the iMac with a big HDD. On that computer I succeeded with installing Youtube-dl.

    Let you know the result...

    I tried it this morning and succeeded on the iMac.
    But as well as on my macBook with Mojave running on it (iMac has Catalina), I had to use Firefox to determine the mpd file. Strange this file isn't showed by Safari...

    Thanks for the info and the help!

  17. Good you got it working you can also use ffmpeg on macos to download frorm vrt you can use this command example >> ffmpeg -i "https://ondemand-cf.lwc.vrtcdn.be/content/vod/vid-14d10194-1218-4cc5-ae97-efa985985d76-CDN_1/vid-14d10194-1218-4cc5-ae97-efa985985d76-CDN_1_nodrm_a40bd699-b27d-45df-afa1-f7b1da79176d.ism/.m3u8" -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc "output.mp4" also if you get some error with mpd link change .mpd to .m3u8 on youtube-dl or ffmpeg because sometimes it will error goodluck!

  18. FWIW:
    Right now VRTnu offers two kind of streams : 1) unencrypted ones showing "_nodrm_" in the long URL, usually with local productions, and 2) short URL containing no "_nodrm_" in the URL, these are for encrypted international productions.
    1) can be downloaded as described above using youtube-dl or ffmpeg, and 2) can be downloaded with these same tools in their UNencrypted form by changing ".../remix.ism/.mpd" into ".../remix_aes.ism/.m3u8".
    youtube-dl and ffmpeg are also available for Linux, so you can always use these from that environment, which can be setup on a Mac as a virtual machine. There must exist Mac software that does this for free - I only use Windows and Linux.

    Is there one possibility to download from VTMGo?
    I like to do that for the same reason as I do on VRTnu. There're lots of old series to playback on my old tv sets. It has to be downloaded before I can play it back on those.

    But I think VTMgo protects his streams for downloading, or am I wrong?

  21. indeed it has a DRM protection it also has hls manifest(nodrm) which doesnt seems to be working atm
