DASH is a live streaming protocol so I guess you can't actually download it until the stream is finished.
I just downloaded that video with youtube-dl and it played fine in MPV 0.32.0-2+b1 (thank me later, I don't even speak Spanish). I'm on Sid though, don't have a Stretch to try it on.
I'm sure you'll work it out, bester. You always seem to have unique problems and fortunately a unique ability to solve them. :wink:

And thanks to this topic, I got youtube-dl working on my Sid again. It was looking for a non-existent /usr/bin/python so I just had to
Code: Select all
# ln -s /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/python

Happy days! 8)

- ok, keep in mind that's the signature of a non organic portal... (unique behavior) , friendly energy like yours also belongs to not organic portals..so you're lucky of not being in their side of darkness


its very strange, Now its playing the vid.. Ok, surelly :arrow: It has to be with being a recently uploaded movie as you told me, cos its a 4 hours ago vid made... Now, when It happens to me again, I will first check if its a recetly movie to not bothering you.. :? SORRY!!

I don't even install it, just download the package from Github and copy only the python script to ~/bin/ . Update when necessary can then be done with
Code: Select all
# youtube-dl -U
