SBS Australia not downloading

Post by MartyG »

I have been using VideoTube Downloader pro for a long time to download video from SBS Australia. Recently the regular downloads stoped working so I started using the link finder option but now even that does not work = The error is no video found on page.

I am using version 14.23.0310 under Windows 11

This is an example of a download site I cannot get to work.:

Code: Select all

https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/tv-series/cobra?dlb=del_cp_bau&did=DM22859&cid=od:edm:accuratorspick:relation:cobras2:hero:na
I have tried Expert mode as well but am still unable to download the video program. All I get is the adverts that run before the program starts

Any suggestion how to overcome???

It works if you copy/paste the link of the page where you watch the video:

Code: Select all

https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/watch/2022662723645
Also it detects a M3U8 stream in Link Finder Chrome mode.

That was how I tried first, here is the link I copy/paste

Code: Select all

https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/watch/2175290435993 
This is for Cobra Series 2. Series1 files work fine.
VTDP reports "No Video Detected On This Page"

So I next launch link finder in chrome mode

When I do that it finds three M3U8 streams - but all that gets downloaded from those is the advertising and NOT the program

So then I try Expert Mode - but again three M3U8 streams - and it is just the advertising, not the program.
