Extract embedded video file off web site

Can someone help me to extract a video file off the news channel site?  Normally I can find an mp4 file.  This time cannot.
Thanks in advance.

Part of the problem is they are using a new thing where a link to an M3U8 file is in the source or the embed source.
The link to the video is actually in an M3U8 file located in this tag:
<meta itemprop="contentURL" content="https://content.uplynk.com/ext/4413701bf5a1488db55b767f8ae9d4fa/091118-kgo-11p-body-found-vigil-vid.m3u8?ad._v=2&amp;ad=kgo_video&amp;ad.preroll=&amp;ad.fill_slate=1&amp;ad.ametr=1">

Open in new window

Use the free program M3UExportTool, http://m3uexporttool.sourceforge.net/, to extract the files and convert them to the format you want.

For some reason that tool doesn't work well with my OS.  Win10Ent  64-bit.  Weird.
Assuming you have permission to copy the video, I've used this before:

I think a free trial is available.
If it can determine the video source file it will download it. If it cannot, then it can record the video as you're playing it on the source website. (The only downside to method 2 is that you'd have to let the entire video play out. Meaning if it's a 45 minute video you'd let the software record for the full 45 minutes, just like an old school VCR)
