This script works as a browser extension to download any video on Arte website.

Go to a video on Arte website and you should see buttons under a video:

  • Select the language and the quality.
  • Download the video and its description.

NB: If your browser open the MP4 video in a new tab: save it (CTRL+S) and close the tab.

For livestreams, you can either:

  • Download directly the MP4 video if available.
  • Open VLC > Open its convert tool (CTRL+R) > Network tab > Copy the link > Convert/Save the video.


Step 1 : Install a script manager

Step 2 : Install the script

Note To get the latest version: either update through your script manager, or redo step 2 ;-)


Why should I use this script ? If you often travel with poor Internet connections, now you can download videos to watch them later.

Why ? ARTE is an amazing place for culture. If you don't have a TV : ARTE website is the only way to watch it. About ARTE: TV Broadcast:
