Thanks mate, yeah I'm checking the Classic AFL Games channel all the time, but most of the Essendon games on there I've either already got or (mostly) are ones we lose haha! But I'll certainly keep checking in case any others get uploaded. And yeah was a great win on Friday night, hope we can play like that from now on! You guys have a big game coming up against the Doggies, who'd have thought that game would have been so huge a month ago???
Yeah I know mate. The AFL taking all those games off the internet, really makes it hard for some of us pirates, who took for granted the access we had over the years. You used to be able to access NRL footage going back to 2004. This included 2008 World Cup, Tri Nations, the regular season and finals. It was mint, as a Storm fan. I reckon as of 2014, it started to be pulled. Damn sad.

As for your mentioning Friday, you cheeky bugger! We will probably get rolled, though I hope not. The Woods really disappointed on Saturday, and until we beat West Coast, no win is really worth the steam of a turd.

How about we just call Anzac Day a draw, to save me the embarrassment? Pretty please? :praying:

I wonder if the Bigpond links work for 2019? Some of the old links still work.

Also, would you happen to have a link, or recording, of the 2012 AFL Grand Final? The AFLs version is like 240p, absolute garbage.
Hey big fella,

The links of course would work for 2019, since the videos are still current on Telstra AFL tv, and the links go back to 2012. The thing with the years 2013 onward, is the formatting for the links become completely random, wheres you only had to change the ending according to round and teams playing, and whether it was finals or not.

Which links still work for you? Anything post 2009 should be available in grouse quality, because the largest video file per quarter was about 500MB. Take the following example for a NRL game:

http://ken-cdn220-is-2.se.bptvpd.ng..._rd26_replays_storm_vs_knights_1sthalf_2M.mp4

The ending "_2M" gave SUPERB quality. I don't have a copy of the old AFL links I am afraid, but the formatting was similar 2007-2012.

There is a way to get 2019 links if you have a live pass and go on the match replays section of the AFL website.
At least it worked when I tried doing so a couple of weeks ago.

I just use ffmpeg with the m3u8 ext. takes forever since it's streamed through their own cdn. Quality is so-so.
