Watch it later

If you want to watch those iFestival 2014 SXSW concerts later, or on an unsupported platform*, you might need this. And a Mac.

*) That's the Lumia 2520 and a BH-940.

Thanks for the reminder. It worked great during the London iFestival last summer.

Grab the new version and recompile.

Volker Weber, 2014-03-13

Done. Works great!

Mmh. This worked in the past but doesn't for SXSW, even the new version. It recognizes the vod, asks me for a file name when I click on "Download" and then does nothing.

Oliver Regelmann, 2014-03-13

I compiled the new version and started it right from XCode - and it works as before.

You are right, I'm stupid. I had the old file from last year still in my Downloads folder and obviously unzipped this one, deleting the new one named "(1)". vowe, thx for your mail.

Oliver Regelmann, 2014-03-14

So am I right that there is no Windows equivalent for downloading the videos?

Tim Franz, 2014-03-14

I do not know. We do everything on a Mac. But this is open source. Maybe you can port it to Windows.

@Tim: I have described the process of saving those concerts manually somewhere on the interweb a few years ago. (do not ask) What it basically does: Mirror your network connection, you click "play" in iTunes, grab the URL (http://imgur.com/LpP7xrg) of the playlists file from the network stream (via tcpdump), do the magic (aka parsing and saving tokens), download all those mpeg_ts parts at once and join them. I just had to change the source/project since my thunderbolt network adapter sits at en3 and the application wasn't ready for that.

Lucky us Apple was too lazy to not switch it's content network's default delivery method to HTTPs. Maybe next year the challenge might be it bit harder. ;-)

Downloading Xcode. I hope I can figure that out how that works to get the imagine dragons concert.

Thanks for the hint.

"Download ZIP" on the mentioned page and unzip
start xcode - open and select iFestivalDownloader.xcodeproj
Product - Run

or

Product - Build
prior to this select the output folder in Preferences - Locations - Derived Data
Relative puts the output in a folder next to the source-code

thanks for the hints.

But I figured it out myself. And I am very proud of this :-) as a first time xcode user.

And it works fine, so I can listen to the great Imagine Dragons concert as often as I like.
