  4. I propose a tutorial with static Version

    1) download https://github.com/chrippa/livestreamer/releases/download/v1.12.0/livestreamer-v1.12.0-win32.zip
    2) unzip the file in C:\ (for example)
    3) so you have C:\livestreamer-v1.12.0 folder
    4) open cmd.exe (command shell)
    5) in this command shell go to C:\livestreamer-v1.12.0
    Code:
    cd C:\livestreamer-v1.12.0
    6) paste the code
    Code:
    livestreamer "http://new.livestream.com/ktvi/live" 432p_hls -o video.ts
    your video is recorded in C:\livestreamer-v1.12.0, and is named video.ts

    Thank you for now!!!

    But I got another question...

    It says like this

    "[cli][info] Found matching plugin oldlivestream for URL http://www.livestream.co
    m/dardah_international_ministry/video?clipId=pla_c49c339c-6651-4084-8737-269b65c

    nal_ministry/video?clipId=pla_c49c339c-6651-4084-8737-269b65c07a56
    "

    Does it work for for alive videos?

    Thanks in advanced!!!

  6. ok you can use user agent switch addon and adblock pus addon on firefox
    1)switch to iphone 3.0
    2) reload your video
    3) click ABP (adblock plus) icon click Open blockable items
    4) search for 'mp4' (without ' ')
    you have the direct link

    This extension only works on livestream.com, but right now you are on cdn.livestream.com

    Is it possible to get around this one? Thanks!

  10. Yhe nessage I get when trying to use this extension is as follows:
    Access to this resource was forbidden by the server.

    It seem like every year they try to come up with new ways to limit access to the videos you pay to watch.

    Any suggestion on a new option to download or capture video from new.livestream.com?

    Thanks,
    Steve

  11. Any update on the downloader? This year it can't seem to find the server.

    Not Found

    The requested URL /events/4/b5/e7/000000000047e5b4/39/39b03fca-27fa-4a52-b305-446f859de955_678.mp4 was not found on this server.

    The video can be found here. I have looked at the source code but it will not let me access the MP4 files directly. Maybe I am just doing something wrong!

    Any and all help appreciated!

    /Steve

  12. I see I forgot to post the location of the video .... no wonder I didn't get any replies.

    There are 4 videos on this page http://livestream.com/holycross/events/4711860 and I can find references to the MP4 files when viewing the page source but have had no luck in downloading the MP4.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    To use with AdobeHDS:

    (You may need to get your own tokens if these don't work. You can do it by running a network sniffer and getting the .f4m manifests yourself.)

    First video:
    Code:
    php AdobeHDS.php --manifest "http://vod.livestream.com/events/000000000047e5b4/0b55f019-9618-451b-b114-5936cd88a6ea_,198,678,2320,.mp4/manifest.f4m?token=0_576b82bc_234e7e11ed71163b2bc1803015160dd0e60096d9" --delete
    Second video:
    Code:
    php AdobeHDS.php --manifest "http://vod.livestream.com/events/000000000047e5b4/9f312831-b808-4046-be99-7b727a5eee9a_,198,678,.mp4/manifest.f4m?token=0_576743fa_7b9091f5602c380ee92b8f8d5d9a661efa755658" --delete
    Third video:
    Code:
    php AdobeHDS.php --manifest "http://vod.livestream.com/events/000000000047e5b4/7887cb78-269e-4985-846b-9f0ec81285eb_,198,678,2320,.mp4/manifest.f4m?token=0_5765b360_245d382653bebedc3c98e868b9138a88b9305465&start=0&end=8281" --delete
    Fourth video:
    Code:
    php AdobeHDS.php --manifest "http://vod.livestream.com/events/000000000047e5b4/39b03fca-27fa-4a52-b305-446f859de955_,198,678,2320,.mp4/manifest.f4m?token=0_57613395_0fc6344a7d3740ea70b6db8a401ff83a74fe4999" --delete

  15. This forum has been extremely helpful and I want to thank all who have provided help.

    It seems to me that the way in which video is being streamed is always changing, and perhaps to minimize the success of those trying to download it. While I have been having success with a Firefox added on call Video DownloadHelper 5 to download most of what I have been looking for from www.livestream.com, I have now come across a video that this does not appear to work with.

    I have also tried youtube-dl, which seems to find something as does DownloadHelper but they both get an error that the content was too short.

    The video I am trying to pull down can be found on either of these two links:

    http://livestream.com/navy/events/4711981/videos/117895341
    http://livestream.com/navy/events/4711981

    It is the 4.2.16 Holy Cross at Navy Men's Lacrosse game.

    It seems as though it may be being streamed in very small pieces but I am at a loss as to how to capture any of it.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Steve

  17. I'm also having issues withe livestream videos.

    Tried the following, but no video.

    F:\livestreamer>livestreamer "http://livestream.com/accounts/18252625/australianasianccwcchamps/videos/118222588" best -o video.ts
    [cli][info] Found matching plugin livestream for URL http://livestream.com/accounts/18252625/australianasianccwcchamps/videos/118222588
    error: No streams found on this URL: http://livestream.com/accounts/18252625/australianasianccwcchamps/videos/118222588

    However, I then tried the following:

    Looks like it's working...

    EDIT: spoke to soon, looks like it's pulling the video in a billion fragments in MP4 format... I read the command line options but can't seem to find anything that says that it will be joined, or a way to write to 1 file. I tried the --no-part option but it doesnt' look like it's doing anything.

    Just wait till the download is finished ... - or download it with Livestreamer.

  19. It didn't finish actually and threw an error:

    [download] 19.1% of ~5.71GiB at 604.45KiB/s ETA 03:04:54 ERROR: unable to download video data: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

    I would much prefer to use the above as it pushes it to a MP4, but I don't know if this error is something normal or not, and if I can rerun it and pick up where it left off (at 19.1%).

    The youtube-dl command seems to be much simpler, but if it's not reliable I will have to use the livestreamer one.

    Cheers!

  20. Livestreamer did the trick for me. Not sure I understand where all the info on the command line comes from but I'll keep trying.

    Thank so much.

    I'm at 20 percent now and the download continues. What happens if you run the command again?

  23. I'm at it again and having troubles getting a video downloaded from here: http://livestream.com/holycross/events/4711860

    The video I am trying to download is the first one "Boston U. at Holy Cross Men's Lacrosse". I don't understand why Livestream.com has so many different ways that they present these files .... anyway, I have youtube-dl and livestreamer installed but am unsure of the code needed to use either. I am on the road so do not have some of my notes from the past, which does not help. I have also had success with a plug-in called Video DownloadHelper, but it does not seem to get me anything but the 1st .f4f segment of the total file.

    I suspect the file will be over 2gb, so that may complicate things a bit.

    Any and all help is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Note: I didn't download the whole video. If the file size exceeds the 2GB limit the download would stop, because Akamai sends a 2GB Content-Length header.

    And creator of livestreamer you open donation page for this , as it's best product I have seen where untouched audio and video we can download at full speed .

  25. I also have the need to download videos from livestream.
    After long google search and test, I find Allavsoft works great in downloading videos from livestream.
    I like its batch downloading and dirctly download videos to MP4, AVI, WMV, MPG, MOV.
    The only debut is that it only allows to download 5 videos for free.
    If you only want to download less than 5 videos, you may try it at http://www.allavsoft.com/how-to/download-livestream-video.html
