  1. Hello,

    any idea how to download this movie and SRT subtitles?

    https://www.france.tv/series-et-fictions/telefilms/2743743-les-heritiers.html

    youtube-dl returns a message:
    "ERROR: Unable to download JSON metadata: HTTP Error 404: Not Found (caused by <HTTPError 404: 'Not Found'>)"

    Movie is normally watchable with subtitles online.

    TIA

  6. I have figured out the URL to manifest.mpd file and streamlink does download the movie without problem but without including subtitles.

    streamlink --mux-subtitles "https://cloudreplay.ftven.fr/aa85760c9b316/1036051817_france-domtom_TA.ism/ZXhwPTE2MzE1ODk0NDN+YWNsPSUyZmFhODU3NjBjOWIzMTYlMm YxMDM2MDUxODE3X2ZyYW5jZS1kb210b21fVEEuaXNtKn5obWFj PTA3NmY3YzgxMjFkODFhYWIwM2RhN2FjZTE2NGIyNTZlODdjM2 QzZWNjZjkxOGM2M2JiMWU3ZGViNmU2Y2ZhMGU=/manifest.mpd" 720p -o movie.ts

    Any idea how to grab the subtitles alone, knowing MPD file?

    TIA

    Any idea why youtube-dl doesn't work anymore with france.tv ? It was working fine 3 days ago but now it exits with ERROR: Unable to download JSON metadata. Also ffmpeg stopped working for m3u8 videos from the same site, video download helper downloads the video but ffmpeg doesn't despite adding user agent referer username passwd ... it seems that a parameter used in the browser is missing.

    EDIT: For those who want to help here's the login info (disposable temp email)
    username: vesar24672@stvbz.com
    passwd:Ben1c3pls.

  9. Youtube-dl is broken for france.tv and any software which is using youtube-dl (i.e. YoutubeVideoDownloader) is also broken. This issue was reported and someone has come up with a patch which seems to work https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/issues/29956

    For me the discussed patch against francetv.py hasn't changed anything for recent youtube-dl misbehavior.

    However, streamlink on MPD manifest file does seem to work properly so there is a workaround, so I'd stick to it for a while (even though youtube-dl had seemed to work faster).

    Thanks for your follow-up

    I'm glad that once I shared my login credentials, which you requested, you were able to provide a "solution".

    Edit: FYI the latest YT-DLP has merged youtube-dl v2021.06.06 which doesn't have the patch to work with france.tv so it's not able to download the json (same as youtube-dl or YoutubeVideoDownloader)

    Streamlink was/is very slow, that's why I was looking for another (faster) method ... haven't try yet the patch

    --stream-segment-threads makes Streamlink downloads go a bit faster https://streamlink.github.io/cli.html#cmdoption-stream-segment-threads

    Code:
    streamlink --stream-segment-threads 5 ".../manifest.mpd" best -o movie.mp4

    --stream-segment-threads

    ...will not do anything on its on - requires a numerical value. Its default is 1.

    lfer94 has suggested 5.

    You can max it to 10.

    Sorry but you lost me, I can also download the movie and subs and place it on mega, but I cannot do it with youtube-dl or any software which is using/based on youtube-dl (without the patch posted in my previous post).

  22. @karapuz Thank you.

    For anyone interested, TVDownloader works, will download the movie, BUT:

    - if in the Video Source URL (Youtube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, BBC, +900 more) field you put the URL for the movie as you are supposed to do then it will not work.

    - if in the Video Source URL (Youtube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, BBC, +900 more) field you put the URL for manifest of the movie then it will work, the movie will be downloaded.

    Edit: While the above (fix) was visible from karapuz post above (attachment) for whatever reason karapuz has edited the post and deleted the picture showing that in TVDownloader you have to put the URL to the manifest not the movie URL, ... so all credits should go to karapuz

    Thank you, it makes a huge difference.

    Started both TVDownloader and Streamlink --stream-segment-threads 10, streamlink finished the download in less than 2 min, TVDownloader was still downloading ... 5.8%

  26. FXMkD asked "Someone have any idea with TVDownloader ? (video from france.tv) "

    Try this ....

    There is a new version of yt-dlp and the changelog says

    yt-dlp 2021.10.10

    Changelog:

    [francetv] Fix extractor by fstirlitz, sarnoud

    Therefore :
    1) Locate the directory where you have installed tvdownloader.
    2) Download and copy yt-dlp.exe to the tvdownloader folder and rename to youtube-dl.exe
