I'm not exactly in need of help but why certain scripts are not working with a particular url...
this is the url: https://www.itv.com/watch/chas-and-dave/L0194
after trying both uk-fta and f ree vine,..... I came to realize that the problem was probably due to part of the url named L0194

using mpd detector I got this:
yt-dlp.exe --allow-u -N 6 "https://itvpnpdotcom.blue.content.itv.com/9L-90712-015/34/1/VAR028-HD-s/9L-90712-015_34_1_VAR028-HD-s.ism/.mpd?filter=%28%28type%3D%3D%22video%22%26%26Displ ayHeight%3C%3D720%29%7C%7C%28type%21%3D%22video%22 %29%29&hdnea=st%3D1700505104~exp%3D1700526704~acl% 3D/9L-90712-015/%2A~hmac%3D2cb564cb818c5016668cf59ec24acd157db890b 43f8057d0235bb2ae4758fa10"
this gave me both A + V downloaded but obviously encrypted.
I have managed to decrypt the A + V and created a full mp4 of both.
Most are thinking why on earth are you posting this,... well my curiosity has got the better of me and have been trying to work out why both the brilliant ukfta and fv does not recognise the above url. Is this something I could fix myself?? p.s. doing the above only took me 2 hours... lol
That's what happens when one doesn't do something manual for a few months.

That's odd. I've just downloaded it fine using UKFTA.
If an episode is lacking both season and episode number, you can use the episode name (or part of it):
.venv ❯ python freevine.py -i -e "christmas" https://www.itv.com/watch/chas-and-dave/L0194 22:18:16.525 INFO : Freevine v1.0.3 22:18:17.015 INFO : ITVX 22:18:17.956 INFO : Chas and Dave's Christmas Knees Up: 1 Season(s), 1 Episode(s) ╭───────────────────── Chas and Dave's Christmas Knees Up ─────────────────────╮ │ │ │ The Cockney entertainers host the legendary Eric Clapton │ │ │ │ Video: │ │ 1024x576 @ 2263 kb/s │ │ 1024x576 @ 1477 kb/s │ │ 704x396 @ 833 kb/s │ │ 704x396 @ 500 kb/s │ │ │ │ Audio: │ │ audio=96000 @ 96 kb/s │ │ │ │ Keys: │ │ 5916d15e50a743eeb3c2f6906010b682:2717f6c7e1208b183c84c24273fbc4a2 │ │ │ │ │ ╰──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────╯
It will not work.... (but, and it is a big but).... I am still using v 1.0. (I never knew that 1.03 was released.) That may be of significance.
Also been trying to get only 720p of this series.
My first port of call is just to get the info:
freevine.py --info --episode S01E01 https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001sflq (works perfect)
2nd to download the full season: (this is where I had to concede that others know far more than me)
3rd lets go for just a single ep:
freevine.py --select-video res=720 --episode S01E01 https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001sflq (works perfect)
I tried a number of different scenarios of trying to get the full season but i failed at each step.
(please accept my apologies: I have updated FV and now the following works
freevine.py --select-video res=720 --season S01 https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001sflq
This kept throwing errors all the time, but I'm please to say it's now working.
Thank you for your excellent work, and your advice, along with Angela's its so very much appreciated.
oops nearly forgot.... for peterb999... my error :

The image is from an ssh connection to my phone doing the grunt work.
I chose series ITVX and not to search. So with a directly pasted entry of your url it found an extended url which downloaded fine.
The single downloader failed because the url provided is not complete. Using the series command, it looks for for all titles related and found the correct single item url.Want to PM me? Just ask in the forum first.
