The shortened URLs are no longer configured. That's explained just above

where the URLs start, i.e., the domain of the long URLs was blacklisted by the URL shortening service I use (

Here's the text from the doc:

Note that shortened URLs are not configured because the domain of the URL is not allowed (need to request it to be whitelisted). So you’ll have to use the full length hairy URL, unless you want to create your own shortened URL using your preferred URL shortening service.

Maintaining those was a real pain in the ass, too, so I'm just as happy not to. Sorry.

I don't know how much longer I'll be able to do any of this. WatchESPN has been switching things over to the MPEG-DASH streaming protocol (*.mpd MPEG-DASH streams instead of *.m3u8 HLS) and cracking the DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection is non-trivial. But for the moment, I still have a few tricks to get around that, at least until they close those loopholes.

You can create your own as using a service like bitly though.
