  1. Hey, I am trying to download an episode using the m3u8 link that I got from chrome, however using both YouTube-dl and VLC gives me corrupted files.


    https://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:mtv.com:fb9b5603-c65b-11ea-9225...3u8?proxy=true


    This is the link to the m3u8 file, I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks

    That's not the full link. See the "..."? That means the link you provided is truncated.

    It's only truncated, by the forum software, for the purpose of display in the forum post.

    The link itself is to the full url.

    The "seamless" sources for viacom have integrated ads.

    Provide the following url to youtube-dl;

    Code:
    https://www.mtv.com/episodes/4t738b/catfish-the-tv-show-dianela-jose-season-8-ep-19
    rather than;

    Code:
    https://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:mtv.com:fb9b5603-c65b-11ea-9225-70df2f866ace/06775234-0463-402a-80da-f9284f193dd4/master.m3u8?proxy=true
    and youtube-dl will use other sources, not the "seamless" sources, to download the episode without ads.

    I appreciate your help, but unfortunately that gives me the error "ERROR: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'split'". It used to work before, I'm assuming MTV has changed some thing that broke YouTube-dl

    I wasn't aware. It must have been done recently. You can wait for youtube-dl to be fixed, or you can download the 8 separate acts for this episode and join them.

  7. I use ChrisPC VideoTube Downloader to download MTV videos, just tried your video and I can download the 8 parts.

    youtube-dl has been shut down, but the good news is there is a "youtube-dlc" which will continue the same road like youtube-dl

    Downloads still work as usual.
