Unable to to download song with video (m3u8)

Recommended Posts

I'm using the smule downloader on this website but instead of giving me a link to save the .mp4 video file, sometimes it's coming up as a small data file with extension .m3u8    

I looked that format up and I think it contains data that points to the real file but I don't know how to get to it.

Could anyone let me know how to access them or why this is happening with just some of the videos and not others?  Here are some example links:

Non of those links point to actual collabs – they are links to the overview pages of all collabs for an OC

You need to pick a specific collab. So it shouldn’t have “ensembles” at the end.

I think it’s video songs that got featured by Smule. They are processed and delivered in a different way than 99.9% of the collabs. I think the other Smule downloader service also fail with these songs. 

Since those are all videos however, you should be able to download them from the app itself.

I guess I got a really unlucky with the rate I saw those then.

 Yes, you are right -- I'll have to just download those on mobile instead of computer.  Thanks for your help!
