I've just find out this forum searching information about how download embedded and encrypted videos from a website. After having tried everything with no lucky (The Stream Detector add-on, IDM, XDM, different download extensions...), I come here, desperate, searching for your help.
I need to download a series of videos from an academy online platform before they are shut down. All links have this format:
The link doesn't open anything. You need to be logged into your profile on the platform to see the video, but you won't be able to download it because the download button is hidden and src link doesn't have "mp4" extension.
I've tried to delete "nodownload" command and all I've got is "Download" button appears, but it only downloads a 128 byte HTML archive named "rqvf" with no content.
I would be very grateful if you could help me.

if you share via PM your credentials (to some hero like: [ss]vegeta or lomero etc), we will help you.
To be honest, the credentials are from my brother. He is studying in this academy to prepare for a pretty hard competitive exam, so I'm afraid he ain't goin' to share his credentials to anybody easily (he refused at first to let me access to his profile) Would it be possible to handle otherwise? Guideance, screen-caps...?
PS: Furthermore, he is supposed to not be able to download the videos and there is an note in the beginning of each video warning to not try downloading the video. So the less his name is public, the best for him. Please, understand
the credentials are from my brother
What a nice guy. Helping out his brother.
I had a look at a demo example video ... https://www.cursoprimariaasturias.com/ejemplos-clases
So I'm assuming that the example lesson is somewhat the same as the actual lessons.
I played the video using the chrome browser and press f12. I selected the Network tab and filtered using mp4.
I captured this url ...... https://www.cursoprimariaasturias.com/videos/EjemplosVideoclases/Ejemplo%20de%20clase%...Da%20renal.mp4
I then pasted this url into a new browser page
From this page I was able to use the download function.
Hope this helps
Indeed, the example lessons are similar to the lessons my brother wants to download from his profile. Although the second ones are encrypted someway and it's not possible to get them through the method you suggested, I'm afraid.
Random lesson which my brother wants to download ("empty src!"):
Even it wasn't necessary to do all the process you did through F12. Example lessons have enabled the download button ("Descargar"):
On the other hand, random lessons have disabled the download button:
without login it's not possible to tests it ----> then not possible help you... don't you think?
The profile has personal information, exams and so on. I'm afraid my brother isn't up for share this kind of data with third persons. I'm so sorry to make you waste your time. I'm deeply grateful to all you guys for your interest, though
Maybe he is willing to do it through Teamviewer or similar, but I understand this method could be annoying for you.
XDM. It only detects a 128 bytes archive:

If I right click on the video and select Save video as, it only lets me to save an ASPX archive. And if I try to convert this archive, I get this message:
