You'll have to compare the output of curl -v succeeding and failing
the download. Have you considered using youtube-dl instead? Maybe
with a "fake" ffmpeg script specified via --ffmpeg-location to move
the video chunks to wherever you need them?

Is that a Debian chroot on a FritzBox, or have you moved to another device?
