    [Question] WoW Guide Request - Skill-Capped Free Videos?

    Hey All,

    Up until recently, you could rip skill-capped videos for free:
    https://www.ownedcore.com/forums/new...ng-videos.html (Skill-Capped - Ripping the videos.)

    They recently changed their website.

    I've been trying to view source w/ different Javascripts but just can't seem to find any way to rip their videos anymore.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, as the guides section does not allow questions. Maybe someone smarter than me can figure out a way to rip their videos without an account now.

    Any thoughts? It would be great to figure it out for the new site.

    Thank you!

    If memory serves me right, the videos are m3u8 + ts - which serves the files in "chunks" (m3u8 is playlist), not just video files. So you'd have to use like ffmpeg to compile the ts files.

    I can take a look if you share your login in DM

    Yeah, it was something like that m3u8. But there was a way to inspect the page, find a certain piece of script like "rel="f0b7f3a5-93a0-2730-58ad-1b5f890bf594". You would then plug that info in the below section of the link:

    http://d3qx1p4lbtwbt8.cloudfront.net/encoded/f0b7f3a5-93a0-2730-58ad-1b5f890bf594_mp4_good.mp4?e=1497022873&h=f0b7f3a5-93a0-2730-58ad-1b5f890bf594

    This is no longer working since they moved to their new site. I don't have an active subscription anymore, but never needed one for this old method. You could rip videos without an account. That was what I was hoping to figure out, but have not been able to so far. They increased their monthly price to like $12, which is more than I want to pay. Especially, since it seems like their release of content is a bit slow.

    Hoping to figure out something like the method here, but have not been able to do so. I can share my account info if that would help, but not sure if it will since I don't have an active subscription.

    Okay,

    So I took one for the team, $13 to get an answer lol:

    They hide the m3u8 behind a sessioned API:

    endpoint:

    Code:
    https://www.skill-capped.com/lol/api/new/video/43761drr9n.m3u8
    edit:

    the 43761drr9n - is the videoID, and is easily appended below.

    Looks like the .ts files are not restricted though, and there we go. just increase that end chunk, and gg

    Code:
    #EXTM3U
    #EXT-X-PLAYLIST-TYPE:VOD
    #EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:10
    #EXTINF:10,
    https://d13z5uuzt1wkbz.cloudfront.net/43761drr9n/HIDDEN4500-00001.ts
    #EXTINF:10,
    https://d13z5uuzt1wkbz.cloudfront.net/43761drr9n/HIDDEN4500-00002.ts
    #EXTINF:10,
    https://d13z5uuzt1wkbz.cloudfront.net/43761drr9n/HIDDEN4500-00003.ts
    #EXTINF:9,
    https://d13z5uuzt1wkbz.cloudfront.net/43761drr9n/HIDDEN4500-00004.ts
    #EXT-X-ENDLIST
