I would like a working version too.

The old YLE Areena (v3) is still available and the current yle-dl version works with that (using rtmpdump) but so far hasn't worked with the new Areena.

I am also on the latest version and it's not working for me either.

Failed to import youtube_dl

Installing php-mcrypt (potentially missing depedency in PKGBUILD?) and youtube-dl changed nothing.

I updated the yle-dl for latest 2.8.1-1 version and it doesn't work at all. There is an error message: Failed to import youtube_dl.

Also the rtmp-backend is broken, when I trying use the option --protocol rtmp, I get following error message: The following protocols are not supported on this source: rtmp

Please update PKGBUILD, old version doesn't work at all and current upstream does.

Update to 2.7.0:

bcmat is an official extension provided in the
php package itself. But must be enabled in php.ini
or by passing '-d' to php.

All should be fixed now.

Also; yle-dl homepage states the following:
"AdobeHDS.php additionally requires php and the following php extensions: bcmath, curl and SimpleXML."
The extensions does not appear satisfied.
php ./AdobeHDS.php
KSV Adobe HDS Downloader
You have to install the following extension(s) to continue: 'bcmath'

I don't find packages for these extensions in official packages or AUR.
Am I looking in the wrong places?
