Need urgent help with GeckoDM plss _II_

GeckoDM has been working fine downloading lectures (as demonstrated in geckoDM - Chrome เว็บสโตร์) from Echo360 up until yesterday (28 June 2021). It seems to somehow out of the blue have lost the compatibility with and therefore the access to the website (where the list of videos are shown and to be downloaded from). When clicked, it return “Invalid Site Detected” but not a single modification to the settings or else has been made on my part at all

I have spent hours trying other downloaders but none works - either fails to download at all or yields a part of the video or a video without audio. I did also try the instructions on GitHub - soraxas/echo360: Commandline tool for automated downloads of echo360 videos hosted by university and managed to download the python (which I believe is required) but to no avail, coming from a humanities/social sciences background

If anyone could shed light on why GeckoDM suddenly stopped working or may come up with an idea on how I could make it work again or suggestions on any other efficient Echo360 downloader would be forever appreciated

Many thanks in advance

Hi @rabittq Thank you for being in the community!

It sounds like you’re looking for help with a specific project hosted on GitHub for GeckoDM. While it’s definitely possible another GitHub user might have run into this same issue and can help, the GitHub Community Forum focuses primarily on topics related to GitHub itself or collaboration on project development and ideas. We want to make sure you’re getting the best support you can, but this forum may not be the right place for this particular topic. I’d recommend checking the project’s README for instructions on how to best get support; a lot of projects will have you submit issues to their repo or provide email addresses for contact.

Best of luck!

Thank you really for your reply. At the very least, it no longer feels like the post has been sent out into the cosmic void lol

As per your advice, I think I’ll also directly email the developer

Any GitHub member with a cheat sheet on how to make the python work (according to the instructions on " GitHub - soraxas/echo360: Commandline tool for automated downloads of echo360 videos hosted by university") for a complete beginner will always be very much welcomed
