@wiii: I only see one request for you and this video doesn't exist.

/2016/04/01/vf_giantbomb_bestof_95_600.mp4?api_key=**YOURKEY**

That may be in the feed from a time when our video publishing was jacked up.

Only one request? I've downloaded a bunch of stuff today (like I listed above, hyper light drifter, bloodborne, kerbal, starlight and more all download fine) just those two (paragon and best of) are having issues and in both the mobile and high quality feeds. Its working good enough for me now (new videos are downloading fine). Was trying to help trouble shoot by posting this strange issue with those files.

Doggcatcher android app pointed at the RSS video feeds with my user name/PW (no API key) has worked for years. This morning I got the Jeff error message when trying to download the new best of video. Came here and followed #3 instructions and added the API key to the rss. It worked briefly. I was able to download two videos (GBE playdate bloodborne and the latest Best of). Now this evening I'm getting the Jeff error video again. Premium podcasts feed (w/ username and password and no API key) works fine. I'll check back during the work week to see if this has been fixed.

Edit: also I am using a Galaxy S6 if that info is needed. Thanks

@wiii: You may be hitting the 20 per day download limit. Your downloader may be trying to help you by downloading too much. If you send me your API key I can tell you for sure if that's the case.

Now it is just acting strange. Here is the order of events I did testing it out today: I was able to download 3 videos (hyperlight drifter in mobile quality and high, and Killer Instinct. Then I tried to download the Best of video and Paragon and got a download error, no Jeff video. The download fails (UPDATE) differently for each video Best of video fails immedialy and Doggcatcher reports an error 404 saying Cause: This error can have a few different causes: authentication, feed no longer available, or video not longer available for download (update: The paragon video actually starts to download for a few second and then errors out saying "com.doggcatcher.apache.http.connectionclosedexception: Premature end of Content Length delimited message body". Then I tried another video (UPF) and that downloaded just fine and another Project Beast and again downloaded fine. I have no idea what is going on.

I have the giantbomb video feeds setup in doggcatcher only to download what I tell it to (no auto download, it updates the feed once a day automatically but downloads nothing). Should PM you my API key?

Darkness 2 for PC is on sale via amazon for $25... BUT you can choose to use the code and unlock it/download via Steam. Same thing for Darksiders ($5). Bought both last night, and can confirm unlocking on Steam worked perfectly. Didn't know this was an option on amazon so I wanted to get the word out.

It's also worth saying it seems only specific games on amazon can be unlocked on steam this way. For example Witcher 2 is $15 but it doesn't seem like it will unlock on steam so I passed.

Here is my "got hacked" back in August story. Basically Xbox support was a mess but after they screwed up and I got a little loud, they took care of me.

Did the normal support call, an investigation was started, they locked my account and said it would take something like 2-3 weeks. No big deal but a little over 3 weeks later I had got no email or call so I called back only to have someone tell me that the investigation was never started and that I would have to start all over. The bright side is that after giving that support tech an ear full and getting transferred around I was able to talk with someone who immediately unlocked my account and put $15 worth of SpaceBucks on it to compensate for the hackers purchases. Most likely no investigation was ever done but whatever, my account was fixed.

Are games bought through Origin tied to my account (ie if my hard drive crashes can I re-download?) that I can move across new PC builds or OS re-installs . I read something about one time use serial numbers on the origin site which sounds...bad. Anybody know the specifics of Origins DRM?

" So us PC gamers can spend as much as xbox and ps3 user but we dont get DLC. Fuckin bullshit. "
So true.  It's funny cause EA thinks they are cutting out pirates (and I guess they are) but the way I see it they are cutting out some of their most die hard fans.  From my perspective (as a big video game fan) I want to play games with the best performance/highest quality.  The consoles are spitting out some sub 720p resolution while my PC is blasting dead space out at 1080p 100fps to the same HDTV.    Why on earth would I ever buy it on 360 or PS3?  It's not a pirate thing, it's not a fan boy thing, it's a "it's clearly better on this system so I am gonna play it here" thing.   So brilliant EA, cut out everyone who looked forward to dead space 2 so much that they specifically sought out the best version of it.   done ranting...

I would be down, but no PC release squashes that idea.     I know PC sales dwarf consoles but I have a hard time with the thought that this DLC on steam couldn't turn a profit.    Especially with all the Mass Effect 2 DLC last year, wasn't that a success?   Damn pirates screw it up for everyone.
