  1. My snooper can only find m3u8 files named like 2.m3u8 or 3.m3u8, and it turns out that these are ads. It's really weird, 'cause those ts files are totally fine.

    So, anyone knows how to download this video? Thanks in advance.

    It keeps saying youtube-dl: error: TV Provider account username missing
    I'm confused, what exactly is my username? My TV provider is Hulu, does it mean my email?

    Still, TV Provider account username missing. Is there any other way besides this?

    yt-dlp supports adobe pass multiple-system operator (TV provider) identifier, but Hulu is not available yet.

    For example, in this case you should use:

    Code:
    yt-dlp --ap-mso TVProviderID --ap-username YourUsername --ap-password YourPassword --allow-unplayable-formats "https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/october-20-eric-idle/4023006"
    You can request to the yt-dlp developer to add support for Hulu. However, this does not guarantee that you will be able to download the video instead of the ads.

    If none of the tools work, you can laboriously do it manually for each piece of content, by observing the network traffic in the browser as the content loads.

    This post from the other thread (to which you recently replied) shows the major requests to theplatform.

    The url request that returns the media sources contains:

    Code:
    link.theplatform.com
    The api request for the media sources to the above url will also include many query string parameters.

    The first query string parameter follows "?", and each subsequent query string parameter follows "&".

    For authenticated content, a very long query string parameter beginning with &auth= will also be included in the url to the api request.

    In order to obtain a hls manifest (m3u8) that can be used directly with streamlink (and has less or no ads), several of the query string parameters in the url to the api request are removed. At least this is how youtube-dl does it.

    Some of the query string parameters that should be removed from the ul to the api request are;

    &player= [data]
    &policy= [data]
    &schema= [data]
    &sdk= [data]
    &switch=HLSOriginSecure
    &siteSectionId= [data]

    And perhaps a few others.
