I’m having problems getting videos on tudou to download with the Video downloader for mac. More details to follow, but I first want to see if this posts (you aren’t sending me the verification email) and I can edit later.
I can not seem to capture the major video on the page (in this case, the NFL game). If I copy the URL (above) and use “Paste URL”, it will download the small associated videos (the ad that plays before the game, a 1.5 MB .mp4 file; the “ZoneTV” video, 12.5 MB .mp4) but not the game itself. Same thing if I use the Detector and put the address in there…it will actually PLAY the game video, but not detect it for downloading. What am I doing wrong?
And I know this can work; I did download the second half of this game before (it was as a .f4v video, for some reason), but I was more concerned with the low video quality (much less than on the same uploader’s Youku vids…by the way, your downloader is working fine on Youku) and didn’t make note of what exactly I had done to be able to download that .f4v. I just thought the process would repeat itself, but it hasn’t.
So how do I get the videos from Tudou? “Paste URL” is not working for me, even if I wait until after the video starts on the page to try it. (Also, is there anyway i can get the superior .flv videos [or .mp4] as on Youku, rather than that rather rough .f4v? I mean, better that than nothing, but still.)
Thanks in advance. And sorry about the registration snafu, on top of all this.
