Script Summary: This script allows you to watch and download videos on Video Mediaset.
With this script you can get the direct links of videos on the Video Mediaset website and it also gives you an embedded player (Windows Media compatible). The videos could be available in the following formats (varies depending on the single episode):
- Smooth streaming (manifest file) - high quality
- Apple streaming (a kind of m3u8 stream (?), you can play it with
- Flash video (FLV direct link)
- Flash video 2 (F4V direct link)
- Windows Media video (WMV direct link) - low quality
- iPhone format (MP4 direct link) - medium/high quality
The Smooth Streaming version is in quite good quality (usually 768x432) but it's harder to download. You can read on my blog how to download Smooth Streaming videos using Linux (in Italian).
I would like to truly express my gratitude to potacchione, the author of RaiMediasetLa7Video (no longer working on the Mediaset site) for creating his script and providing the base URL from which the informations are gathered.
