    I can't find any application to make it possible to download from the flemish VTMgo platform. I think this streams are DRM protected.
    I want to download 4 episodes of a serie; via screen recorder should this be possible.

    Which screen recorder should I use? Every screen recorder I used so far gives black picture when I start to playback the video...

    thanks for the advice!

  2. I use Bandicam, maybe to try OBS as well?

  3. Provide links and user/password via private message and we might be able to get you the show the proper way, not the screen recorder way.

    By the way, try disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome, it might fix your black screen "problem".
    Or try another browser like Firefox.

    Bandicam is less interesting, I use a Mac computer, it seems it's just for Windows. OBS does the same: black picture.

    There are literally hundreds of 2 - 3 minute help videos on YT re: the OBS black screen issue.

    Except, the proposed solutions aren't for the DRM problem.

    Of course not - they are to solve the OBS black screen issue !

    OP thinks screen recorder is the way to go.....to solve his DRM problem.

    (I don't, there is probably a direct download method - but that's just me).

    OBS black screen can be due to DRM.
    However, it mostly isn't.
    So, most proposed solutions aren't gonna address that, they are gonna address "change this in control panel, change that, install this, set this setting" etc.

    It seems like I've solved my problem. Playing back the videofiles using Firefox instead of Safari was the clue. No more black pictures.

    I haven't found a solution yet to download directly from VTMgo, but playing back and recording the file is a good solution for the episodes I've missed.

    Thanks for the clue called OBS!

  10. VTMgo does seem to have some problems decrypting the files from the MPD file. I tried this one:

    https://dcs-vod.apis.anvato.net/vod/p/manifest.mpd?encp=H2j4EXbClh_8FqhQJd6KCQ:7g8KeYp...6&t=1632230654

    But after decrypting the audio/video mp4s with the 5 provided keys, the endresult is the last 15-20 minutes of 35. It's like there are some keys missing.

    The videos are split by parts, as can be seen by -0 -1...

    So you need to download the parts and decrypt them with different keys (maybe, analyze the mpd and KIDs) then merge them.
