                Haven't posted before as the program is quite well documented and works so well, 

I have generally been able to figure out my mistakes in the past.
However, I was trying to pull this and a few other similar clips but am unable to get them to work.
I thought I would post a see if anyone had a solution to these type clips. 

Links to the clip (although I know the last one (/hd/) currently isn't working)

Other similar are p00kbyyx, p00kbygr, p00kbyhj and so forth on the page

I have tried using --type tv --url="tv:<above links>"
I have tried using --stream --url="<above links>"
and using a simple --get using the middle link gives the following which is very similar to the others.
