[HELP] Downloading from NicoNico

Recommended Posts

So in order to watch RAZOR's tour final, I took the plunge and invested in premium membership for NicoNico. But it's only possible to watch ended streams for a month or two after their original stream date, so I wondered if anyone knew a way to download from NicoNico, or even just record streaming video in HD.

 

Of course, if I can find a way to do this I might be able to help you all out by grabbing some other premium-only content or live streams... ;)

While you can use any rando flash video downloader plugin or inspect element to grab standard niconico vids, livestreams are a bit more difficult (even time-shifted ones) b/c of DRM. Here are some options:

  1. When recording this, I captured the full-screened window in OBS. Obviously not ideal, but it werks :/.
  2.  http://clock08.tumblr.com/post/36799796458/namaroku-and-kakoroku (another set of instructions http://pakaianniob041.tumblr.com/post/18062039507/if-you-want-to-record-timeshift-broadcast-you) I'm unsure if it still works, since the posts are dated. It seems to be the most popular/user-friendly option.
  3. There are GitHub projects for niconico, but most of them don't have a GUI, so they require a background in their respective programming languages. I haven't messed w/ them b/c I don't have a premium acc. anymore.

I haven't had a premium account in years, so maybe someone else has a more up-to-date solution. I would use a HLS downloader for Akamai streams, but idk if they would work with niconico.

Use youtube-dl with an account file.

Actually grabs the file instead of recording, it does require some knowledge though. (the non-gui)

Oh damn, I just realized I've been using an outdated ver. of youtube-dl packaged with youtube-dlg (the python gui.)

I don't use a gui w/ ffmpeg, so I need to just grab youtube-dl, lmao.

But yea, you can apparently use it now for timeshifted videos on niconico and livestreams. It does both flash vids and HLS streams ^_^.

I'll soon publish my own made script for download on my website.

It'll give you the best file downloadable configuration trying to keep it in its original state, aswell as simplyfing and automating the process by a ton.

(it'll include being able to attach an nico account aswell soon.)

 

Incase you care that is.
