If anyone could try to download this file here: https://video.cwl-live.ch/video/72/weff-2021---vortrag-andreas-thiel?channelName=Dani?t=0 I'd be very grateful. 🙏

VLC lets you do it. Just open up VLC Media Player and do this path:

Media -> Open Network Stream -> enter URL -> arrow next to Play -> Stream -> paste link again -> next -> add -> browse -> choose file location and a file name (.mp4) -> next -> Profile: Video - H.264 + MP3 (MP4) -> Next -> Stream

This is the command that consistently works for me:
ffmpeg -protocol_whitelist file,http,https,tcp,tls,crypto -i "https://m.media-amazon.com/images/S/vse-vms-transcoding-artifact-us-east-1-prod/fb043d87-2a63-4e0d-a0a3-52c8b536ea0d/default.jobtemplate.hls.m3u8" -c copy video.mp4
