Why can't curl download the ffmpeg-2.7.tar.bz2?


Tag: curl,ffmpeg

I'm working on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2. I want to use curl command to download the ffmpeg-2.7.tar.bz2 as following:

curl -O

It can't work.

However it works fine with other url.

The message as following when add the --verbose option:

$ curl --verbose -O
* Hostname was NOT found in DNS cache

Where did I go wrong?

You appear to be using a proxy (, which is returning a 302 redirect.

To make curl follow HTTP redirects, use the --location option:
