download online video
« on: October 23, 2019, 07:13 AM »
Hi,

there's this one online news video that I want to archive on my PC. Is anyone here able to do that and willing to help me? I've tried to google "download video" and the site's name, but no luck.

I don't want to post the link publicly, please send me a message if you might be able to help. Thanks!

Well I use the following, in no particular order, to get the online videos, I need.
Since you do not want to specify the link, I am including the youtube one too.


See if any helps you.

Regards,

Anand

The command line utility youtube-dl has support for downloading streams from a lot of sites.

Thanks. Sadly, none of those worked.

Thank you, that sounds very promising. The site with the news video I want is mentioned, but I wasn't able to install youtube-dl. :( The required Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package is installed, but the youtube-dl installer fails again and again... no idea why.

You could install SlimJet, (as a portable app), and use it's tab recorder - it'll record anything in the current tab even if it's behind other program windows or you switch to another tab, (let it run in the background and use another tab for browsing).

It'll save it as a WEBM container with VP9/OPUS codecs in your default download folder - can be easily converted to something else using FFMPEG.

Otherwise, send me the link and I'll have a go.

I've just tried it, but it just. won't. start. No error message, just nothing. Weird...

Otherwise, send me the link and I'll have a go.
Thanks, will do!

There is a portable release of youtube-dl (GUI):

youtube-dl-gui-0.4-win-portable.zip

Source: https://github.com/M...tube-dl-gui/releases

Hopefully it gets the job done :Thmbsup:

Cheers!

FWIW, VideoProc downloaded the video, (1280x720), without a problem - it's just another frontend to youtube-dl.
