                  • Pls fix soon

                    I dont know what the issue is here but ive been trying to watch replys of tournament games for ages now and i keep getting the error 206 message, if im lucky one in about 20 trys will get the reply to fully download, but most of the time it never works. considering ive actually paid money for a feature thats not working i have to say that sucks, i can understand if its not something that can be fixed just like that, but an eta would be nice

                    thanks

                    • Yes, I cant watch any replays of the Tournaments I bought tickets just because of permanently Download Error 206. Must try to find VoDs of the matches to watch with *** low quality. Why should people buy tickets now when this bug is too popular?

                      • It's pretty unbelievable that this issue hasn't been fixed yet.
                        Also, big thank you to the guys who investigated the problem and found workarounds.

                        • Chiming in to say that I get this issue as well. I'm on a very unreliable wireless network (ping is good sometimes, but ping deviation is through the roof). I've tried using the console options suggested:
                          net_maxfragments 1000
                          net_maxroutable 1000
                          net_maxcleartime 30

                          I've tried deleting the partial files. I don't want a refund, I just want to be able to watch the matches.

                            It is possible to get direct replay links to download through a browser, which you can find using either the dotabuff website, or a packet sniffer.
                            Note: There is probably a simpler method, but I have no idea how dotabuff gets replays from match IDs, and the web API (which could easily be used to script up downloads for match IDs) is never working.

                            For most pub games; you should be able to put the match ID in dotabuff and it will give you a replay link at the top right corner of the match details page. If the download link doesn't work, the match is probably just unavailable (unrelated to error 206).

                            For tournament, private, and pub games where dotabuff cannot find the match ID; you will need to use a packet sniffer. This guide will show my method using Wireshark, an open source packet sniffer.
                            1. Get Wireshark and start the program.
                            2. In the capture section on the main page, ctrl+select all the interfaces listed and click start.
                            3. Enter the following filter:
                              Code:
                              http.request.uri contains "/570/"
                              and hit apply. This should be remembered in the list, so in the future just click the drop down box and select it.
                            4. All that screaming text should now be silent, time to start up Dota 2.
                            5. Simply open up the match details of which ever replay you wish to download, where it shows the download link. You don't need to attempt to download the replay.
                            6. Alt-Tab back into Wireshark, and it should have found some HEAD packets, which are used by Dota 2 to confirm whether or not a replay exists. The correct packets will show a .dem.bz2 file in the info section.
                            7. Select the packet, and in the information section below, click to unravel the Hypertext Transfer protocol section, and you should have a replay link you can double click. The end result should look like this:


                            Once you have the replay, extract the .dem.bz2 file (you will need a program like 7-zip or winrar) to:
                            Code:
                            Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\replays\
                            and remove the second number so that the filename is the match id, followed by .dem (i.e 59649229.dem for match id 59649229)

                            Hope that helps any other poor soul suffering from error 206.
                            Thanks ,
                            its work but we can use https://dotabuff.com/matches to download replay.
                            any match has id.
                            use it to find match

                            • ^ And if you had actually read you would find dotabuff does not store match IDs for paid tournament replays, as much as I wish they did.
