 Excellent.  I'm in the UK so there were no issues with geolocation,
but I just wasn't using the correct version of magic command line.

 I've just downloaded the linked version, successfully downloaded,
converted to mp4 and watched.  Wonderful.

 Many thanks for the command line options to get this down.
Also, much appreciation to all who did the work and took the time to reply.
