You can purchase and download the video (with the commentary) from the RiffTrax website. The download page for the video (after you order it) also includes the “Just the Jokes” version that you can stream, but you can’t download that version.

Would someone be willing to find a way to download this for me?
https://archive.org/details/COM_20120111_073000_The_Colbert_Report/start/0/end/60

That was annoying. It’s split up into multiple parts each 1 minute long. I wrote a quick bash script to download all the parts. Works on Linux. I think Mac would also work with this?
And if you have ffmpeg, it also combines them all:

main_link_start=“https://ia800609.us.archive.org/16/items/COM_20120111_073000_The_Colbert_Report/COM_20120111_073000_The_Colbert_Report.mp4?start=
main_link_end=“&end=”
counter=0
>colbert_concat
while [ $counter -lt 1800 ]
do
filename=The_Colbert_Report_$(printf “%04d” ${counter})-$(printf “%04d” $(expr ${counter} + 60)).mp4
echo “file $filename” >> colbert_concat
wget -O ${filename} ${main_link_start}${counter}${main_link_end}$(expr ${counter} + 60)
counter=$(expr ${counter} + 60)
done

ffmpeg -f concat -i colbert_concat -c copy The_Colbert_Report_20120110.mp4

In case that didn’t format correctly when pasting here:

code

I just ran it and it finished. When it’s done, it had the following files:
files

All the ~6mb files are the 1 minute mp4s.
colbert_concat is an intermediary file made by the script, needed by ffmpeg to combine.
go.sh is the actual script
The_Colbert_Report_20120110.mp4 is the final file, 179mb.

The final file seems fine. Most of the transitions at the minute marks are unnoticeable (3-4 of them had a bit of corrupted video).

Chewbacca & holiday special stuff starts at around the 17min mark 😃.

If I am missing something obvious it is because I am very unexperienced when it comes to command lines.

Actually, how about you just send me the files.

Haha ok.
Do you want the combined file or the individual 1 minute files?

Out of curiosity, what’s the resolution?

All I was able to find, and it was aeons ago, was 768x432.

The copies you gave me are much better quality, but they are missing little parts here and there so I created a patchwork of different copies that overall created the best possible quality. Also for some reason the HD-TV you gave me has a orange tint, and the part on internet archive was slightly to yellow. I used them in this order of priority.

  1. The stream rip you gave me
  2. The HD-TV you gave me
  3. The 4:3 internet archive source that snoopac ripped for me
