Well, I've got some good news, and some bad news.

The good news is, that after a spell in the shops, my usual rig is back online and I am back from the wilderness. The bad news is, that after a spell in the shops, my usual rig is back online and I am back from the wilderness. Give and take...

I do, however, have more bad news than good. Much like our team, we may have been worked out. The formatting has changed:





In the plus column, we now have a 1920x1080 maximum resolution. However, as you can see, we are back to the old m3u8 file format. You will need to open these in VLC Media Player. And if you use the Record function, you can keep a copy.





Finding a workaround to this new development has me stumped, so I might put the challenge to the floor here: can anyone else do better and find an MP4 extension for these things? We've done it before. Surely we can do it again...?
I'm not sure how to make those links mp4, but I have figured out the pattern with the links so you can access a game from this year (Rounds 15, 16 and possibly the future). I will try my best to explain.

So the first thing you do is you go on: https://www.afl.com.au/livepass/match-replays where the replays are. Then you want to block the sign-in elements (by using Ad Blocker or use inspect element and delete). Then you choose the match that you want to get (eg. Round 16's Gold Coast vs Richmond). After that, you right click on the thumbnail of the quarter you want and click inspect element. You should get this:

705424


Now if you look in the URL after it says the date (2019/Jul) there should be 6 numbers, where in this case it's '996946'. You want to copy that number and put it on the URL (where its highlighted red): https://bpmultihlsvods3258.ngcdn.telstra.com/hls_afl_h264_ts/996946/v7-121-221.m3u8 And you got the link of one quarter. Then you repeat the steps to get the others (which all you do is add 1 to the next link).

Q1: https://bpmultihlsvods3258.ngcdn.telstra.com/hls_afl_h264_ts/996946/v7-121-221.m3u8
Q2: https://bpmultihlsvods3258.ngcdn.telstra.com/hls_afl_h264_ts/996947/v7-121-221.m3u8
Q3: https://bpmultihlsvods3258.ngcdn.telstra.com/hls_afl_h264_ts/996948/v7-121-221.m3u8
