i have problem capturing rtmp stream with this website which used to work fine using rtmpexplorer and rtmpdump and it had variable bit rate , and i was capable of downloading the desired bit rate .
but lately rtmpexplorer could not capture any link , so opened the video link normally and the website changed its way of streaming and now its using m3u8 files at least this is what i got .
this is the link to the video
note it has variable bit rate , i want the 360p with 696 bit rate and another with 1296 bit rateCode:http://shahid.mbc.net/ar/episode/42083/
before they offered 480p and 720p with excellent bit rate but unfortunately its gone , still i believe the rtmp still exist because i tested old link generated by rtmpexplorer which i saved and the rtmp still works .

thanks , it worked , i tried ffmpeg before but it did not work back then,
i have three question :
1) how to find the m3u8 file link , for the 1296 kbps bit rate , as fast as possible because the way i did it when i start the video i have to change it from the default 696 kbps bit rate to the 1296 , and then open adblocker plus for firefox and click "open blockable items " for the video link then i search for m3u8 links but i dont know which is 1296 and which is 696
i know its strange way but i do not know better way .
2) the video type is ts , i wonder if its possible to download as mp4 or mkv or flv without any quality losses .
3) in case the internet cut off "my wireless sometimes stops working " , can i resume ?, i used to do this using rtmpdump with the -e command , hope i can do it with ffmpeg .
thanks again for the help , cristianoA
You have the same syntax here:
ffmpeg -i "http://l3md.shahid.net/media/l3/2fda1d3fd7ab453cad983544e8ed70e4/71a59161ad174d61ab2991f1938b6bb7/e37a7343d01d4f48b5c81ff8fe3ccd10/stars_of_science_s05_new_e23_daily.mpegts/playlist-f42db71c8f1536eb5d9e7a286f07b485a57c31da.m3u8" -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc "video.mp4"
same problem here, with that streaming, always some error...
ffmpeg -i "http://www.leisertv.com/stream/etv/etv.m3u8" -c copy etv.mkv
Sorry posted to a wrong thread.
