    [youtube-dl] YouTube said: Unable to extract video data

    What version are you on? I tried with version 2020.12.09 of Youtube-dl but I am getting the same as @rodp. Qtube is making no difference.

    I can't get It to work either. If you have an Android phone or tablet you can download it with Tubemate: https://tubemate.en.uptodown.com/android

    [youtube-dl] Download files from youtube.com or other video platforms

    To get subtitles from iPlayer I add the following entries to /mod/etc/youtube-dl.com: --write-sub --sub-format srt --convert-subs srt For playback on the HDR-FOX you may need to edit the srt files to remove formatting information (e.g. caption colour) otherwise this will show up as text entries...

    EPG still showing summer time

    Don't you think you have another 20 years in you? Will there be any HDR-FOX units still in operation in 2038 or 2040? Will the parts of the earth that aren't underwater or desert be inhabited by roaming packs of zombies? Perhaps we should have a poll?

    You Tube

    Fair enough. I don't visit that site very often.

    You are better off posting about this topic at myhumax.org. You will probably still be ignored but someone at Humax might notice.

    Humax not seen on network (Solved)

    One of the curses of Windows. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the samba package. This may make the unit reappear on the network. It will probably happen again though.

    You are right. It works (youtube-dl_2020.09.20-2) with the standard configuration file but fails with the '--write-sub' option added.

    The recent update of Youtube-dl (youtube-dl_2020.09.20-2) seems to have broken something. I tried to download an episode of TOTP and got the following errors: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/mod/lib/python2.7/runpy.py", line 162, in...

    Some recordings don't save progress

    One thing to note about the Sidecar package is that it was not designed to create sidecar files for Nicesplice-cropped recordings. It will work correctly if the recording has just been 'topped and tailed' but the duration will be incorrect if if sections of the recording have been cropped out...

    youtube-dl: no formats available for some BBC programmes

    If you have the Qtube front end for Youtube-dl installed then removing Youtube-dl will fail if you don't uninstall Qtube first. Alternatively, from a terminal: opkg remove youtube-dl --force-depends will remove it.

    brand new HDD but EXTENTS_FL errors

    In Ubuntu 16.04, if you open a terminal window and send the command 'gksudo nautilus' it will open the usual file manager program but with root privileges.

    brand new HDD but EXTENTS_FL errors

    You are the only one who mentioned panicking. So you knew that a seek error rate parameter equal to 31715 means 0 errors in 31715 seeks? Without understanding what the value of that parameter means how could anyone possibly know whether it is typical or atypical? EDIT. From Wikipedia: Seek...

    brand new HDD but EXTENTS_FL errors

    Fair enough, I am not good with hex annotation and my calculation was wrong. My point was that just looking at the raw number doesn't tell you what's going on, you need to convert to hex.
