Default problem with arte.tv plugin?

Hello,

Since two weeks it seems the arte.tv plugin no longer works.
The URL i’m trying to download is:
**External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

It tells me the plugin is defect.


Does anyone know what’s going on?

Thanks

Hi,
this is a known problem.
If you want more information and possible workarounds for now, check the german thread.

@erratic: the website has changed API and streaming format. The plugin needs to be revisited

Hello, thank you for the quick response and explanation.
I guess this is speculation but do you think they changed it to thwart downloading?
Just curious

No they didn't.

We've already explained that in the linked german thread.
EDIT In this post specifically.

@erratic: they just shutdown very old API endpoint (used by JDownloader and other tools) and switched to more modern streaming format that is able to switch quality depending on connection quality/speed. We have to revisit the plugin and update it to support both changes

@psp, thank you. i don't understand german, but i've google translated the german thread now to be able to see what you were referring to. you literally answered my question in the german post indeed - sorry

@jiaz, i appreciate you giving a quick and clear explanation. i'm not familiar with all the technology behind it but i do get the idea now of why it "broke" down.


thank you for taking the time to respond guys.

hi, i would just like to add one more small comment of appreciation.

i’ve been using JD occasionally for 1,5 year now (i’m not a heavy user), mostly because i find it convenient and faster than via browsers.
i use it to download from arte, and also some webinars etc – i like to watch stuff offline.

whenever i want to download some video, and right-click doesn’t show “download .mp4” or something – then i used to be stuck.
now, i just fire up JD and 9 out of 10 times it just “knows” how to do it.

but it’s now only because of the arte issue and reading about it on the forum that i’ve come to realise i took for granted most of the magic of JD…
of course, that magic is nothing more than passionate work and effort from everyone who programmed this.
i just copy the URL into my clipboard and voilà, easy-peazy. but i realise now that this is only possible because -someone- took the time to analyse arte’s way of working and to programme the necessary to make it work so easily in JD. and someone will also bother to take the time at some point to study this again and update the plugin to keep the magic going. so, thank you when you do.

so, this is just to express my humble appreciation.

Thanks for your nice feedback!

In the meanwhile you can use the linked "workarounds" to keep downloading from ARTE as long as our plugin is broken.

I've released an early version of the still in progress new plugin.
You can read my notes to that in the german ARTE thread.

Thank you for mentioning this here too

I went to test straight away, and i'm now downloading my backlog as we speak

I've read/understood it's still work in progress, but it's clear enough for me to find the files version i wish to download.

such a relief

@erratic: thanks for your feedback. we'll continue to work on the plugin and improve it and add new/old features but it may take some time.

hello,

another great thing i wanted to mention, and a big reason why i use JD, is that sometimes ARTE's website tells me "this video is not available in your country" - which is silly for a neighbouring country...

but when i put the URL in JD, bye bye borders
(and without having to use a VPN to bypass)

@erratic: I guess the api doesn't check for geolocation
