Hello, new here
Ran the youtube-dl, worked on youtube.
Tried for Rumble, didn't work....
I thought I had read on the site that it would work for other sites as well, Rumble etc. ??
Is this true?

Use a browser's Developer Tools (F12, Network tab) to get a link to the mp4 file. You can download via that link. For example, this page:
leads to this mp4 file:
right click on the link and save the video. Or play the video in a browser, right click on it, and Save As... Or you can use youtube-dl to download via that link:
I did try that, got to network... popped up a screen on the bottom of the video.
some sort of tool/options setup screen... but did not see the change in the link address ??
It only shows you the links as they are being opened by the browser. Where it says Filter URLs -- enter mp4. Then reload the page and play the video. You will see the mp4 link(s) in Developer Tools.
this is what I saw, looks like 3 mp4 files....
I did get it to work and DL, just wondering what the 3 different files were ?
They're probably all the same. Sometimes it will be different resolutions. Servers often start with a low resolution version then switch to higher resolution if it finds you have sufficient internet bandwidth. Try the last one first.
Thanks for the info.
All of this is just a long way to DL the audio...
once I get the vid I have a program that strips out the audio/mp3
But I'm always looking for other/better ways to do that if you know of any ?
