    Hi ikum,
    1. Add the bookmarklet to Bookmarks of your Firefox browser;
    2. Open a “special link” in new tab/window which is available if you press the “Download” button;
    3. Then, press the bookmarklet to continue.

    I submitted an issue but never received a response. I will try here.
    I have the bookmarklet in Safari 10 and also in Firefox 49.0.1 running macOS Sierra 10.12

    When downloading a video on Firefox, everything works fine. However, on Safari I can only get as far as right clicking on the quality of the video, selecting “Download Linked File As…”.
    Once I do that, the download immediately stops with: “Zero KB of ? – You do not have permission to access the…”

    I can not read the rest of the message, it can’t be found in Finder. Trying to find the file in Downloads results in:
    “Safari can’t show the file “****.mp4” in the Finder because the file has moved since you downloaded it.”

    Again, it works fine in Firefox but not in Safari. Please help.

    Hi rjb,
    Thank you for your message. Sorry for late reply.
    It seems that you use private mode (Private Browsing) in Safari browser.
    If so, try to turn off the private mode (Private Browsing) in Safari, and then try again.
    More information – https://support.apple.com/kb/PH21413

    Firefox browser has the same issue when using a private browser mode.

    You can also try to clear “Сache” and “Сookies” in Safari browser and then try again.

    I am not using Private Browsing in Safari.
    I have turned off all browser extensions in Safari, restarted Safari and it still doesn’t work.
    The “Сache” and “Сookies” in Safari browser have been cleared, as well.
    So far, it only works in my Firefox browser, which by the way, has all extensions on, and still works fine.

    Thank you for additional information.
    Have you tried to playback a video file (Copied direct link) directly within Safari browser tab/window instead of using “Download Linked File As…”?
    If you can watch a video via the copied direct link within Safari browser tab/window – you can try to use the context menu and select the “Download Video As…”.

  6. 6 rjb  September 30th, 2016, at 7:39 pm:

    I had already tried using the direct link as well, and “Download Video As…” which gives a “.m3u8” extension instead of an .mp4, but this also results in the same error message of: “Zero KB of ? – You do not have permission to access the…”, and it wont download. Nothing seems to work in Safari to get it to download the video file.

  7. 7 rjb  September 30th, 2016, at 8:07 pm:

    I just tried using “savevideo.me” on the Vimeo website for a video there. The bookmarklet doesn’t work (clicking on it does not open a new window), but if I enter the URL where the video is into the savevideo.me website, I am able to save the video. So it seems that the savevideo.me function is broken for dailymotion videos on Safari, but not on Firefox.

    Thank you for additional information.
    Could you please share DM page URL (here or via feedback form)?
    Have you tried to log in your DM account and then repeat all the steps?
    It seems that something is wrong with the “session” or “cookies” when you use Safari browser :-\

    >> I just tried using “savevideo.me” on the Vimeo website for a video there.

    Since “Vimeo.com” now uses “HTTPS://” protocol – you need to update your current SV Bookmarklet to the following code:

    javascript:(function(){appPath%20=%20'https://savevideo.me/';function%20l(u,i,t,b){var%20d=document;if(!d.getElementById(i)){var%20s=d.createElement('script');s.src=u;s.id=i;d.body.appendChild(s)}s=setInterval(function(){u=0;try{u=t.call()}catch(i){}if(u){clearInterval(s);b.call()}},200)}l('https://savevideo.me/js/bookmarklet.js','SV',function(){return!!(typeof%20bookmarklet=='function')},%20function(){bookmarklet()})})()

    Here is the DM page URL:
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4vcp8e_avance-moises-cap-229_tv

    I have been logged in to my DM account the entire time.

    Also, the bookmarklet has been updated with the new javascript as you advised. I noticed that clicking on the bookmarklet when on a Vimeo page video automatically jumps to the page where I can select what quality video format I want to download saving me the extra steps that Dailymotion requires of having to click on a separete link that opens the video full screen to then have to click on the bookmarklet again to access the video quality selections.

    Thank you for additional information.
    Unfortunately, the issue is still not identified for Safari.
    But if it works fine in “Firefox” – you can use “Firefox” or any other web browser (while the issue exists for “Safari”).
    Also you can try to use HTTPS:// version of the DM website.

    >> Dailymotion requires of having to click on a separete link

    Fixed. Thank you for your message ;-)

    I was able to download my first video and as MP4 file following the instructions.

    However, tried to download other videos, including the first video, for all the download options offered, they all downloads as the same .m3u8 file now, and the file is a small less than 1MB file that is not a valid media file.

    Any idea what’s going on? TIA!

  13. 13 savevideome  October 18th, 2016, at 2:18 am:

    Hi,
    Thank you very much for your message.
    Fixed. Please try again.

  14. 14 rjb  October 28th, 2016, at 9:23 pm:

    I still have not received an update on why Safari is not fixed.

  15. 15 savevideome  October 30th, 2016, at 11:40 pm:

    rjb, Do you have the same error when you try to download from another video site (e.g. from “Vimeo”) via “Safari” browser?
    Have you tried to use any browser extension, such as download manager or something for “Safari”?

  16. 16 rjb  October 31st, 2016, at 2:53 pm:

    I do not have any error when downloading on Vimeo via Safari. I do not have any download managers in my extensions, either.

    Also, on Dailymotion (using Firefox), up to recently, I was downloading a video series from a particular user’s channel with no problems. But now, the most recent videos start to download for a few minutes then suddenly stop with a “Failed” message in the downloads progress window.
    Here is a link to one of the videos that gives the error:
    dailymotion.com/video/x4zp4id_capitulo-243-moises-y-los-diez-mandamiento-hd_shortfilms

    It is not happening with other user channels, though.

  17. 17 savevideome  November 1st, 2016, at 1:12 am:

    rjb, Thank you for additional information.
    Unfortunately, it is impossible to trace the reason why video is not available on the third-party server, where a video is stored.

    As for the second issue (error with long DM video) it does not dependent on SAVEVIDEO.ME for the same reasons.
    SAVEVIDEO.ME mainly helps to download “short videos” (simple videos up to ~10 min.).

    You can try to use any browser extension for managing your downloads that will help resume the download when the download immediately stops.

  23. 23 savevideome  April 12th, 2017, at 2:55 pm:

    Hi doug,
    Thank you for your message.
    It sounds like you’re trying to download an old video which has been completely deleted from DM servers…
    Could you please share page URL which has this issue?

  24. 24 Cindy  May 30th, 2017, at 1:45 pm:

    Hi savevideo.me
    i have a problem while trying to download videos from dailymotion. whenever I click the bookmarklet it says “Chrome detected unusual code on this page and blocked it to protect your personal information…”
    could u help me please? what must I do?

  25. 25 savevideome  May 30th, 2017, at 3:08 pm:

    Hi Cindy!
    It seems like you are using the “httpS://” version of the DM website.
    There are 2 ways:
    1. Try to use “http://” DM site version instead of “httpS://” (Screenshot – http://prntscr.com/fduv79 ).
    2. Or press the icon (shield with a red square) in the upper-right corner of the browser.
    Next, click “Load unsafe scripts”. And try again (Screenshot – http://prntscr.com/fduwju ).

  26. 26 Franco  June 16th, 2017, at 7:41 am:

    Is it possible that is a limit for the mb of the videos? Cause all the videos aren’t completed, I note that the best one have a half.

  27. 27 savevideome  June 16th, 2017, at 1:33 pm:

    Hi Franco!
    It seems that the limit can be for “large videos”…
    Short videos (Simple videos up to ~10 min.) is downloaded fine.

    SAVEVIDEO.ME mainly helps to download “short videos” (Up to ~10 min.).

  28. 28 Ben  August 27th, 2017, at 1:20 pm:

    Hi,
    It seems savevideo.me doesn’t work on DaillyMotion anymore, because DaillyMotion changed their video streaming way. I’m using Developer Tools, and see the mp4 video is separated around 100 Kb per clip delivering via xhr.

  29. 29 savevideome  August 27th, 2017, at 11:18 pm:

    Hi Ben! Thank you for your comment.
    SAVEVIDEO.ME is still works with DM videos. If downloading stops, then just copy the found direct link (Link to a video file) and open it in a new browser tab/window (manually).

    It seems that the issue is only when a link to a video file was opened from the SAVEVIDEO.ME interface.

  30. 30 Ben  August 28th, 2017, at 12:41 am:

    Hi savevideome,

    This is the link
    dailymotion.com/video/kBZT7RgD9ZPFCOnuyY3

    Previously, savevideome.com works, but now get 403 Forbidden.

  31. 31 Ben  August 28th, 2017, at 8:54 am:

    Hi savevideome,

    I’ve downloaded it successfully, however, the download method is changed!

    1. As usual, use savevideo.me to generate the download links. and click `save link as… `,
    then got a Forbidden 403. ( In the past, download started )

    2. open the Chrome’s download tab on chrome://downloads/

    3. Find the failed download, then, open the link. The video streaming will start

    4. On the streaming video, right-click the mouse, and choose `save the video`, then the download started.

    Wierd, don’t know why…but it did work. :)

  32. 32 savevideome  August 30th, 2017, at 3:35 pm:

    Ben,
    Thank you for the additional information.

    Currently the issue is fixed for “new web browsers” only (Chrome > v.15, Firefox > v.36, Safari > v.4, Opera > v.12).

    If you are using an old web browser, you should open a direct link (Link to a video file) manually in a new tab/browser at this time :-\
