"playlist". The URL points to an XML file containing the URLs of four or more video parts and no ads. The following script downloads the episode page, grabs the playlist URL, downloads the playlist, and parses it. It returns a newline separated list of video URLs.
You will need to have curl and xmlstarlet installed.
#!/bin/sh if [ "$1" == "" ]; then echo "usage: $0 episode-url" exit 1 fi EPISODE="$1" PLAYLIST=http://tvnz.co.nz`curl "$EPISODE" | grep -Po "(?<=playlist: ').*?(?=')"` curl "$PLAYLIST" | \ xml sel -N smil=http://www.w3.org/ns/SMIL \ -t -m "//smil:video[@systemBitrate='700000']" -v '@src' -n -
I have saved it as
tvnz-grab and call it like so:
tvnz-grab <episode-page-url> | xargs curl -O
The four or five parts can be played as a single file using mplayer’s
