I hope somebody could help me. Sorry for not writing in German, but I am not fluent enough.
I am trying to download some arte programs with Polish subtitles available on https://www.arte.tv/pl/ and arte+7. I assume it is possible to get a direct link similar to the ones you can find in MediathekView. The question is: how do you get the ones included there? Is there an algorithm? Will I be able to find the links to the desired programs on my own?
One example of a documentary I would like to download is this:
On arte sitemap (https://www.arte.tv/videofeed/Sitemap/pl.xml) I can see a link which seems to be similar to the links to German and French versions in MediathekView:
but it doesn’t point to the mp4 file.

There is a way to find the mp4 download links, but the following way is much easier and does function on many other video websites:
- Install JDownloader 2 (JD2) and open it.
- Open the arte webpage: https://www.arte.tv/pl/videos/067809-000-A/ober-ost-wojskowa-kolonia-rzeszy/ and copy the URL to the clipboard
- JD 2 now gets the URL from the clipboard and offers the video to download in different resolutions and with different subs burned in the video.
- Right click on the desired video to start downloading the file.

You want to go from
I don’t know how to guess “03264648” or “DB”. I also did use JD2.

Thank you guys! That is the sort of thing I was looking for!
In the meantime I have been playing around and actually found another way to download the files, using ffmpeg and the links that are contained in the index_1_av.m3u8 file.
Anyway, your solution is so much better! Much appreciated!
