I'm trying to download a recorded radio-show that can be found in the following URL: http://player.glz.co.il/Player.aspx?FixedPoster=true&FixedPosterName=GLZAOD.jpg&ClipID=150519-16&Type=aod&Width=300&Height=200
For personal, non-commercial use only, I hope it's not a violation of copyrights, if so I'll abort

I'm using inspect-element within developer tools in google-chrome browser in order to reach the files I believe they are the video-files of this video. If you will play the video and hit ctrl+shift+I you can see a list of files named *.tsSeg1-frag1 and *.tsSeg1-frag2 and so on..
I've built a script that downloaded all of these files. So now I need to merge all the files and convert all of them to a more standard format.

What I've already found out:

  • I used the command: file "file.tsSeg1-frag$x" typed in my Linux Ubuntu 14.04 and the output was:Apple QuickTime Movie (unoptimized)
  • I've Downloaded in the previously a bunch of similar files which ending with .ts extension from other sites and I could open them easily with a normal video viewer. The other sites' files' format as displayed with the file command is: MPEG transport stream data

I need help to find info about this file format and help me find a proper software to manipulate it.
The only resource I've found was this webpage:
https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/technotes/tn2218/_index.html And I'm not sure how much it could be relevant especially since I don't have a Mac nor Apple QuickTime-pro 7.

EDIT:

The URL at the top of this post points to nothing now. Here is a link to a globally shared Google Drive link with those files downloaded but unplayable

EDIT 2:

I tried VLC and this was it's result when launched from the command line:

  • Aren't you better off using some 'audio grabber' while playing this? – user416 Mar 14 '16 at 14:55

    I think the quality should be much better using a software that can decode these .ts files rather than use an audio-grabber of some sort. – Doron Behar Mar 16 '16 at 15:27

From what I have seen, VLC should be able to play these. However, .ts files seem to be rather special.

I have found two threads, one on askubuntu and another one on ubuntuforums that might help out more.

Give it a try and let us know whether it worked.

  • A lot of time has passed since I wrote this post, the URL at the beginning of it points to nothing now. I edited the question with a link to a zipped file with all of those files I downloaded from that URL but I can't play. – Doron Behar Sep 13 '17 at 15:08
