Oh okay. It looks like anything that's not contained in one of the 'Show' categories, it can't be downloaded. Is that fixable?

@rasulguhl: Of course it's fixable. Rorie and the boys (Roy's Boys?) are probably working day and night on this and I'm guessing it will be fixed in a week or so.

@rorie Thanks. I can download any video in the iOS Video buddy app so it must be possible somewhere in the code if that helps the engineers. I don't really know computers.

@rorie: If you mean you brought it up during the previous design iteration of the video pages, then yes that did eventually get fixed. Apparently the re-re-design brought the bug back again. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Update:

Since this is not fixed yet, I found a simple work around, using the api.

1. All you need to get going is your API-key, get it here:

https://www.giantbomb.com/forums/api-developers-3017/quick-start-guide-to-using-the-api-1427959/

2. Then find the video you want to get download links to and save the guid for it. It's the number looking something like this: 2300-11626 in the link.

Example:

https://www.giantbomb.com/shows/house-flipper-garden-flipper-dlc/2970-19323

3. Open a new browser tab and use this format:

https://www.giantbomb.com/api/video/GUID/?api_key=INSERT_YOUR_API_KEY_HERE

Example:

https://www.giantbomb.com/api/video/2300-11626/?api_key=0000000000000000

4.You should see an ugly looking XML document. Scroll down to the bottom, select the the quality you prefer and add your this at the end:

?api_key=0000000000000

Example:
https://...../mc_hitman2nd_colorado_100516_3200.mp4?api_key=0000000000000

This is of course rather tiresome if you need links to a lot of videos. If that's the case I recommend writing a script for it. Or wait for Rorie's boys.

EDIT(s): Fixed the missing note on api-key on link's end. Something screwed up the text formating in this post. Text was all over, guess it doesn't like shift+space...
