It gives me a '403 Forbidden'. It might need a valid referer, headers,
cookie, IP address, something else, or even a combination.
Blithely chucking URLs at ffmpeg as input and hoping to get output is
almost certainly not the best way of going about this. Might I again
suggest not reinventing the wheel? You could reach out to folks who
are like-minded: interested in saving potentially ephemeral video
which may be important. You can investigate options, but chatting to
the folks behind yt-dlp  or the archiveteam  might be places to
: https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp - their discord is listed on
their GitHub page
:https://wiki.archiveteam.org/index.php/Main_Page - worth having a
read of their wiki
