p06mvmmr is the series PID, as you can see by navigating to it, and isn't supported by yt-dl (yet).

p06mvpsw is the episode PID, but (as you note) the high resolution streams are only supposed to be available to certain "Smart" TV iPlayer apps. yt-dl doesn't know how to find these streams (yet). Perhaps no eagles with extremely large disk storage have contributed to the extractor.


The stream URLs are meant for viewing. Quite possibly, they are limited to real-time plus a margin for background buffering.
So how come if I played the program on my t2 iplayer and after about 15 minutes max I could just save the last streamed content?

i'm trying to download a bbc prog and it's unbelievably slow. it got interrupted three times and it's still on 41% .

how different is the highest quality file obtained this way compared to the recording of the buffer via the last download through the inbuilt iplayer ? the inbuilt is setup as hd quality.

May contain traces of nut
I don't know why, but I am no longer seeing numeric format codes in the -F manifest for iPlayer downloads:

This is not the only example. The lack of a short format code makes it awkward trying to select a specific download. I even updated youtube-dl.exe (Windows version, 2019.04.24) hoping that might help.

BH : I don't know why, but I am no longer seeing numeric format codes in the -F manifest for iPlayer downloads:
I don't think I have ever seen numerical format codes for BBC iPlayer downloads, (they are numerical for YouTube downloads), however if you use something such as Putty you can 'pick up' text from the screen in order to create a link like the one below easily :-
Code:

Not sure in what context you mean numerical format codes?
Perhaps I'm misinterpreting your question. get_iplayer used on my PC will return numerical values from searches.

You could then "get_iplayer -g 3524" to get the latest episode. Are you confusing two different download programs?

I have to admit I had to do this from a 'real' computer with a keyboard, I find it very difficult from a tablet

BTW

Having waited for the above download to finish, I tried several YouTube links that have worked in the past and I am getting this :-
Code:
Humax1# youtube -F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlLFOrWvY_M
[youtube] SlLFOrWvY_M: Downloading webpage

ERROR: SlLFOrWvY_M: "token" parameter not in video info for unknown reason; please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug . Make sure you are using the latest version; type  youtube-dl -U  to update. Be sure to call youtube-dl with the --verbose flag and include its complete output.

I am also using youtube version : 2019.04.17

You are! Your results from get-iplayer are nothing to do with youtube-dl.
Not quite what I was saying. I know you are using youtube-dl. Just thought you may have confused the programs as Ezra Pound suggested the feature you described might never existed. I'll keep quiet now!

It's not listed in the output of youtube-dl --list-extractors, but I see the short football highlights videos (example) at BT Sport can be downloaded (it uses the brightcove:new extractor).

Perhaps subscription content is also accessible if you have an account?
 

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
A problem I foresee is how to persuade the "far end" that youtube-dl is a logged-in user. wget can be given cookies to use, extracted from an open browser session - maybe youtube-dl has a similar mechanism.

Apparently there is a football final featuring two minor London teams this evening, whose free-to-air viewing is via YouTube. The following procedures may allow you to watch the show live using your Humax HD/HDR, once you've found the URL ($url below) from YouTube, since YouTube no longer understands its Humax Portal app.

First, find the formats provided (note - if you have just installed the youtube-dl package with no other hacks, you'll need to say python /mod/bin/youtube-dl instead of youtube-dl in all the following):
Code:
youtube-dl -F $url
From this you can pick the desired video and audio format codes. If the final is distributed in a similar way to the preview show, there will be a format with both audio and video, selectable with -f best[height<=1080] to avoid resolutions beyond the capability of the Humax decoder. Then you can stream the download like this:
Code:
# adapt this to "/media/whatever/Video" for HD Fox
vids=/media/My\ Video
youtube-dl -f "best[height<=1080]" -o - $url | ffmpeg -i - -acodec copy -vcodec copy "${vids}/baku.ts"
Now you should be able to watch baku.ts as it's streamed to your box.

If the final had had no format with both audio and video, you'd have needed to pick the desired video and audio codes from the listing. For the preview, you could have 136=video,720p,1903kbit/s,avc1, 140=audio,DASH,133kbit/s,m4a (you do want a combination with AVC with height <= 1080 and m4a). Then find the super-long media URLs for each format:
Code:
vurl="$(youtube-dl -f 136 -g $url)"
aurl="$(youtube-dl -f 140 -g $url)"
Finally:
Code:
ffmpeg -i "$vurl" -i "$aurl" -acodec copy -vcodec copy "${vids}/baku.ts"
And again sit back to watch baku.ts.

After the event, or at least its first half (appropriate updates above):
  • all versions of the live stream were transmitted as combined video and audio;
  • some of the video encodings featured ambitiously high resolutions that the Humax video decoder doesn't recognise: make sure the video height doesn't exceed 1080;
  • the 1920x1080 stream had code 96.
This is what I actually used:
Code:
youtube-dl -f 96 https://youtu.be/Sw8wJvn6_sk -o - | ffmpeg -hide_banner -i - -vcodec copy -acodec copy "/media/My Video/Europa Final 2019.ts"
Add -mpegts_m2ts_mode true[/u] before the output file name for proper m2ts format.[/u]
[u]And there's another chance to test this on Saturday involving two Northern teams (north of the Marylebone Road, anyway).[/u]
