    Hello all you magnificent video brains.

    I am currently mildly desperate to download the video at https://www.svtplay.se/video/1715726/hjalp-sokes ... and especially its subtitle file. Nothing I've tried has worked. Firefox extensions simply display all the mp4 fragments. TVDownloader doesn't acknowledge this somewhat obscure Swedish site. Ye olde Pirateplayer app was last updated in 2013 and no longer works.

    Some clues to a solution would be hugely appreciated! This particular video appears to be one of very few on this site not geoblocked outside Sweden. Its ABBA-related content is the attraction for me.

    Many thanks, in advance.

  2. Youtube-dl:

    Code:
    youtube-dl https://svt-vod-10g.akamaized.net/d0/world/20200506/eb026cfb-9eef-4856-94b0-c10f7cbaf29a/manifest.mpd
    You can get the mpd URL with a browser's Developer Tools (F12, then reload the page).

    Youtube-dl is an option,but for years there has been a specific tools for Scandinavian/Baltic sites (including SVTplay, viaplay,etc) called svtplay-dl, it's also a command tool.
    All you need to do is call the .exe and put link to embeded video:
    Code:
    svtplay-dl.exe "https://www.svtplay.se/......"
    In some cases it's better than youtube-dl.

    Thank you so much jagabo. It's the "mpd" part that threw me. I was looking for m3u8 and other things like that. Never heard of mpd before but I'll definitely look out for it next time.

    Thank you, that's great to know. I'm hoping it would work through a VPN, as that would be the only way to access many of the SVTPlay files outside Sweden.

  6. Sviests mentioned command line tool svtplay-dl and I've just remembered that there's GUI/program using that library called streamcapture2. I've never used it, but it's worth a try.

    Nilzzon, thank you, that's brilliant. Can you please tell me how you located that? Youtube-dl-gui did not download the subtitles despite my selecting them.

  10. The subtitles files are often visible in the HTML code (View Page Source, search for "vtt").

    get nordVPN ...
    i am currently on u.s. server,and watching SVTPlay via it. :P
    download with pyIDM to get the subtitles aswell.
    or,as someone said earlier.. open developer tools (F12), go to network tab,and filter "vtt"
    and you get the direct link for the subtitles.. (in firefox atleast,you have to turn them ON first, for the link to pop up,cause they're OFF by default..)
    eg.
    Code:
    https://svt-vod-10g.akamaized.net/d0/world/20200506/eb026cfb-9eef-4856-94b0-c10f7cbaf29a/text/text0.vtt
    ...but,it's enough if you just paste the video url in pyidm,it downloads both the video+subtitles.
    no need to open developer tools.
