Dailymotion - downloads

Recommended Posts

Not sure if to ask here or in the computer forum ...

 

Yesterday and before I have been able to download UK tv series from Dailymotion, logged in or not.   Also download from Youtube.

Today, 26 November 2019 am unable to download from Dailymotion with whatever programs I have and / or by using a VPN.

For downloads I use 4K Video Downloader, ClipGrab, Gihosoft TubeGet.

Never had this problem before unless the site is restricted by the producer of the TV series ( I don't mean porn ).

Anyone having the same problem ?

I was under the impression that you cannot download from You Tube without extra software like Internet Download Manager, and I have just tried and proved it on my system anyway. Will give Daily Motion a go.

 

Yep, same with DailyMotion, cannot download unless IDM is turned on.

I have Format Factory but I thought is was only for converting formats e.g. MP4 to MP3 of already downloaded music or video files.
I can find nothing in download blurb for FF itself about downloading a film / tv show etc.  from YouTube or or Dailymotion etc.    Can you please clarify ?

 

Some video downloaders also have a change format option so you can change a music video from MP4 to MP3.     Is this what you mean ?

 

My issue is with being unable to download TV programs direct from Dailymotion or Youtube etc.

I cannot find Internet Download Manager on my laptop as a stand-alone program or within Win7 files.
I run Win7 original.
One day I could download from Daily Motion and YouTube the next day I could not.

Did you download Internet Download Manager as a stand-alone program

IDM is not part of windows, it is a 3rd party application that needs to be downloaded. Not sure if there is a free version for this though.

What message do you get from 4K Downloader? I can download from Youtube and always have done using 4KD. As for Daily Motion, I never go there, but just tried it and 4KD says unable to parse and to send a link to them to solve? Usually with 4KD they do updates after a few days and things start working again?

Yes, and paid a very small one-off fee. It works well.

Thanks WorriedNoodle for your comments.
The message I get is the same as you 'unable to parse'.

I keep 4KD up to date but never had this issue before.   Have used for some years now.

Tried again today Wednesday but same problem.  Will try again later in the week.
I go to Dailymotion for UK TV series that YT often don't have or only have a few episodes.
I don't have a TV and like some of the international TV series as well as UK.

I enjoy UK and international TV series ( old and new ) and don't want a TV, so DM is often better than YT.

This is a UK comedy series which I recently downloaded from DM, have tried downloading again but 4KD cannot parse.

ClipGrab downloader says that it "Could not retrieve video title".

Gihosoft TubeGet just goes on trying to download but gets nowhere.

Have tried deleting 4KD and new reinstall but same problem.
Even issues with 4KD and YT.

No such issues with my seedbox. See your PMs.

 

Have you already obtained all four seasons?

What downloaders did you / do you use if not 4KD ?

 

I don't seedbox.
Yes, I managed a long time ago to download all, first time 2015 then again in Feb 2019.    As far as I remember I used 4KD for both times.   Unfortunately I deleted some issues, may have back ups somewhere.

 

4KD was also good for downloading foreign TV series from DM as complete series often not available on YT.  Excellent ones from Iceland, Finland, Netherlands etc.    I kept many of them.

With IDM there is a onetime payment  of around 1000Bt which lasts for life, I have had IDM for about 12 years now and I have to say they always answer your emails very quickly if you have any problems.

But be aware if you use the Opera browser, you will have great difficulty downloading from Youtube.
