    Try getting episode 1 of The Twilight Zone (the original series). It will either fail to download completely and/or if fully downloaded, is unplayable in VLC. The same thing happens with a few other episodes. However, some other episodes download and play perfectly.

    +1, I had this on a few shows too. Deleted them now, so I can't remember what they were, but IIRC the videos looked fine in Mediainfo, but just wouldn't play.

    I notice that when downloading, the file size are stable. It seems anystream do not save video to the file. And when download complete, open the file with ffplay/ffmpeg.
    It outputs error:

    This happens when only part of a stream is saved to the file, while the rest is filled with 0s. We are looking into this issue.

    P.S. Thanks for attaching the log!

    Any ETA on a fix? I'm using the trial version and it will expire.

    With its ready. Phase have patience. If trial expire without a fix and some pretty important bugs are fixed in the next version, there's a decent chance yourself would get rest of dyson so tot can give it a propper test

    Here's a few more logs from failed downloads. Do you think there will be a way to recover existing failed downloads? I won't have Netflix too much longer.

    We need to be able to reproduce it locally in order to have ETA. Otherwise we can only evaluate each and every aspect of the download process. It takes time, although, we are pushing it forward.
