  1. I'm trying to download a couple of episodes from Crackle, and I'm running into a couple issues I can't figure out.

    On this episode: https://www.crackle.com/watch/053afde0-b375-4ce5-97f6-1b7d28546e5d/messiah/the-promise-part-1

    I was able to get the mpd, download the mp4, and get a working key. However the final result had no audio. I did some digging around and found a link to an mp4 labelled audio

    Code:
    yt-dlp "https://widevinedashus-crackle-com.akamaized.net/1/j/um/enc_audio_ie9yb_Crackle-L01-sd-320k.mp4" --allow-u --no-warnings
    Running that through mp4decrypt with the same key gave me a file still without sound, so I went back to the drawing board. Specifically I've been trying to isolate the video and audio streams from the mpd, using this code:

    Code:
    yt-dlp --allow-u -F “https://widevinedashus-crackle-com.akamaized.net/1/j/um/ie9yb_Widevine_Dash_playlist.mpd”
    But every time I get the following error:
    ERROR: [generic] '“https://widevinedashus-crackle-com.akamaized.net/1/j/um/ie9yb_Widevine_Dash_playlist.mpd”' is not a valid URL. Set --default-search "ytsearch" (or run yt-dlp "ytsearch:“https://widevinedashus-crackle-com.akamaized.net/1/j/um/ie9yb_Widevine_Dash_playlist.mpd”" ) to search YouTube
    Is there a step that I'm missing?

    Your quotation marks are invalid (")
    Try this
    Code:
    t-dlp --allow-u -F "https://widevinedashus-crackle-com.akamaized.net/1/j/um/ie9yb_Widevine_Dash_playlist.mpd"
