Dota 2 replay SOLUTION!!!
Ok guys I actually found a way on how to download and to put it to your dota 2 folder at steam.
Make sure you have a console on your dota 2
This is only (or if you want) for people who gets a replay error ****.

Here's a step by step:
1. Open Dota 2 and find your replay.
2. Now download it.
3. Now you notice if it doesnt download open the console and you'll see something like this.


Sending steam HTTP request to check replay file
Sending steam HTTP request to check replay file
Sending steam HTTP request to check replay file
OnReplayCheckCompleted: exists = 1 statuscode = 200 context = 118121446
OnReplayChunkDownloadCompleted: Replay download failed. Error code = 206 success = 0
Retrying download: http://replay151.valve.net/570/118121446_662041951.dem.bz2 Bytes: 0-1048576

NOTE: the 118121446 number you see is actually the match ID I dont know bout that 662041951 you see there.

4. Copy http://replay151.valve.net/570/118121446_662041951.dem.bz2 or what you see there on the console.

5. Open your Google Chrome or any browser and if you paste it at the address bar.

6. OK YOU SEE SOMETHING DOWNLOADING THAT IS IN A ZIP FILE.

7. When finish downloading here's what you're gonna do. Extract your downloaded zip file to this C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\replays.

8.Delete the _######### extension of number. All you will need to see is the number of you match ID.dem

9.Open dota 2 and check your replay and enjoy :)

10. If you didn't understand in my steps just ask.

I don't know bout wireshark. Does it download replays too?

I have the file in the folder but when I try to view it in dota it still asks me to download the replay :C

That's odd. Did you do exactly what I said at #8?
Marul Feb 9, 2013 @ 7:05pm

[Tazcam] Cypher Feb 9, 2013 @ 10:53pm

It probably means that:
1.You were playing in limited(replays are not recorded here(not sure about low-priority, etc.))
2.Replays are auto-deleted after some time

Mine doesnt work... i have it as a .dem file in my replays folder but it doesnt show in my dota downloads tab and then if i say playdemo <demoname> in my console then it says :
CDemoFile::Open: couldn't open file 1203737361.dem for reading.
ReadDemoHeader: replays/1203737361 (2).dem has invalid demo header ID.
ReadDemoHeader: replays/1203737361.dem has invalid demo header ID.

I tried this method to download replays from the DAC but still it doesn't work.
Perhaps the problem here is their server, since it shows "Unknown Network Error" on my browser while downloading.

Anyway, thank you for this.

I can download the replays from DAC however it is taking forever... I started downloading around 9am EST and there is only one over 75%... :(
