Yes we are looking at it. Thanks for reporting it.
all good thanks.
Have a try of 18.104.22.168, which has been updated to remove the emoji's which were stopping the url from being extracted when entering the url of the video page to download.
Due to the fact that the m3u8 file is cached by the browser, it is easier to enter the url than clearing your browser cache so it can be detected in auto mode. Auto mode used to work btw - just need to bump the cache to clear the m3u8 file.
Can you provide an example url please.
Correction: It is not always a problem with symbols/emojis but when the problem occur it is always with a username with symbols/emojis :-)
Try this one. Made some further improvements to removing the emojis.
I have now tested quite a lot of periscope links - both stream and digital video recorder. It turns out that if the user and the video title do NOT include smileys or other symbols they will download. The problem is when the user and/or the video link include a smiley or other symbol it will not download the file. However a few times I have managed to download a file with a smiley... Hope you will look into this.
