  1. I was wondering how can I take a YouTube stream and see it in the QuickTime video player as a video stream?

    (I think it might be impossible since YouTube uses Flash objects.)

    (Problem Solved: Kudos to bat999! Will be using alternative program (VLC).)

  2. Anyway, just to get a heads up, this is the YouTube stream I want to turn into a QuickTime video stream:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIU2JCwAEek

    If you did convert it, please give me the video stream file.
    Or we can chat what programs I can use to get the stream file myself.

    Plus, I use a Macintosh. So .exe, .bat, or any other Windows file format is not allowed in this thread.

    Thanks, and please respond!

    UPDATE: This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIU2JCwAEek), is not a video with a end! This video is live and broadcasted as a YouTube live broadcast, not a normal video!

    And, since you're on a Mac, you ought to be able to play more of the standard FLVs with Perian. Won't cover ALL the variations, but should help. BTW, Perian is invaluable for Mac/QT users (though I believe it is no longer maintained).

  5. But this is not a video where you just play and then watch it to the end. This is the kind that is like a live show. FLV is not a live streaming format

  6. This is my idea in a more descriptive manner:

    This YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIU2JCwAEek) is a live stream. This is not a video with an end (Unless stopped by owner). I want the video to be watched as a live stream in the QuickTime Video Player by grabbing the stream and saving it as a live stream playlist.

    For example, a .pls file that has a audio live stream of the KJFK Air Control Tower. What about VIDEO live stream?

    Keep trying!

    Open YouTube, start your video- select resolution you want
    Step1- right click on video-select pop out
    The video will start playing in its own window
    Step2- right click on video in its own window- select copy video location
    Step 3 Open VLC player- open network location- paste - click ok to close dialog box

    Pl note you are not downloading the video- only playing in vlc instead of your browser

    Not from me. Saw it on the net. As per the op, woks with almost all players, which can play a link.

    I have confirmed that it works with vlc.

  8. Sadly, I can't see any "Copy Video Location". Looks old and might NOT work anymore. I need a more modern approach.

    Plus, how would I download a 24/7 Live Stream's pre-recorded footage? It has Terabytes of info! (Sounds crazy, but it is!)

    Hi
    With Linux I can view that live stream in VLC .
    (I don't have Quicktime installed on my system).
    Using the program "youtube-dl". Look here ---> http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/
    This is the command:-
    Code:
     youtube-dl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIU2JCwAEek -o - | vlc - --meta-title "GoldenCam"
    Maybe you can do something similar with your Macintosh.

    youtube-dl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIU2JCwAEek -o - | vlc - --sout="#std{access=file,mux=mp4,dst='GoldenCam.mov'}" vlc://quit

  11. Thanks! Anyways, VLC is good enough. And I got Ubuntu Boot Camped in my mac just in case so if there is any trouble using youtube-dl on my mac.

    So, use VLC to view live and QuickTime to playback footage I recorded.

    Again, you saved me once again!

    (Thread may be closed anytime if needed. But to get further feedback, keep it open.)

    With Ubuntu...
    Install
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -y install youtube-dl
    Then update
    Code:
    sudo youtube-dl --update
    @ubuntu:~$ sudo youtube-dl --update
    youtube-dl is up-to-date (2013.05.23)
