Saving InputStream-adaptive DASH streams - Jdo300 - 2020-06-16

I currently have legal access to several Widevine DASH streams, complete with manifest files and appropriate licence keys, and need to download local copies of the original files. I am able to play them in Kodi using the InputStream Adaptive plugin by creating the appropriate .strm files, but is there any way to save the streamed, decrypted output to a file? So far, I tried the DreamCatcher plugin but it doesn't appear to work with the latest version of Kodi (V 18.7).

We do not support such actions, as they would be too easy to abuse to violate our piracy policy (wiki) with other sources.

That is why you will find the plugin you mention on our banned addons (wiki) list as it too was so abused in the past.
