FS#1485 - [hypervideo] soundcloud downloads display 401 unauthorized error

An example:

$ hypervideo [soundcloud] moshe-feiglin/wuh9dlykfhok: Downloading webpage
[soundcloud] moshe-feiglin/wuh9dlykfhok: Downloading info JSON
[soundcloud] 717666847: Downloading track url
WARNING: Unable to download JSON metadata: HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized
[soundcloud] 717666847: Checking fallback video format URL [soundcloud] 717666847: fallback video format URL is invalid, skipping
ERROR: No video formats found;

                  Error: Nonfree Bytecode Required!
     It's currently impossible to download this video with DRM.
    Hypervideo protects your freedom by avoiding DRM and nonfree
                        bytecode parsing.
                            More info:

It works in latest youtube-dl (the 401 error does not appear). Not sure the soundcloud hypervideo downloader ever worked in hypervideo (it might require non-free scripts).

Reason for closing:  Fixed

Soundcloud works in the updated version of Hypervideo. This bug can be closed.

Should mention, sometimes if you try again and again, hypervideo eventually works. ;)

same with upstream youtube-dl. just my two cents :)
