Перепробовал пару расширений по скачиванию HLS и других форматов зашифрованных, и они могли тока записывать видео, эта целое виде ждать нужно, а тут скачал без всяких проблем, а также видео может запрашивать при сохранение .mkv формат, но на деле скучиться в формате .ts вы не переживайте и во можно смотреть через MPC-HC либо изменить формат в любом видео редакторе, но если скажите это долго о есть универсальный быстрый способ для вас, использовать прогу универсал, она бесплатная в интернете - mkvtoolnix-gui! Также можете изменить вырезать обрезать добавлять, и быстро сохранять в любом формате, за 1 мн. фильм а другое за пару сек делаться). Думаю что нужно добавить формат .mp4)
