    Hello,
    firstly you need to download this : https://www.videohelp.com/software/livestreamer

    after, you have to copy the code that biezom gave you in livestreamer and hit enter

  7. Biezom,
    I tried the above code you gave in livestreamer, but I get an error message. Can you look at the below screenshot and tell me what is the problem? Also, can you tell me how you got the code? I stream played the video with Firefox and tried different things like: Adblock Plus, iphone 3 user agent etc, and could not find anything like you posted: (http://c1.vkcache.com/sec/umwZ........).

  8. Biezom's livestreamer command line didn't work for me either. But...

    Using URLSnooper I saw this link:

    http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/9dXnKXR3CcrbZiatSFLS1A/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480129200/h...8bd536?socket=

    I got an error message when I attempt download that file with Firefox. But if I use User Agent Switcher (a Firefox plugin) to change the user agent to iPhone 3 I can download the file -- it's an m3u8 file. Taking a hint from biezom's livestream command line I came up with this:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -user-agent "User-Agent=Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_1_2 like Mac OS X; ko-kr) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML,like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7D11 Safari/528.16" -i "http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/9dXnKXR3CcrbZiatSFLS1A/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480129200/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=" -vcodec copy -acodec copy output.ts
    I aborted the download after a while but I got the first 30 minutes of the movie. Presumably you'll get the entire movie if you let it finish downloading.

    <edit>

    I tried downloading the video again a few hours later and my ffmpeg command line no longer works. The link to the m3u8 file appears to change after a while. Right now it's:

    http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/NPSGU-BVxcX9PKBtnkIL2Q/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480172400/h...8bd536?socket=

    That's probably why biezom's livestreamer command line isn't working. So you'll have to use URLSnooper to get the current link when you download the file.

    I checked some variations on the referrer field. It looks like as little as -user-agent "iPhone" is enough.

    I verified that the filename expiration is the reason biezom's command line didn't work. Updating the name of the m3u8 file gets it working. So right now: the livestreamer command is:

    Code:
    livestreamer --http-header "User-Agent=Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_1_2 like Mac OS X; ko-kr) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML,like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7D11 Safari/528.16"  "hls://http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/NPSGU-BVxcX9PKBtnkIL2Q/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480172400/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=" best -o video.ts
    And I was able to download the entire movie with no problems.

  9. Thank you very much. A lot of learnin' goin' on here.
    I used your ffmpeg code and started the download, and then aborted after a minute. I was able to play the file.
    Then, a few minutes later, I tried it again and it didn't work. I used URLSnooper on the streaming video, and the link had changed. Putting the new link into the ffmpeg template you provided, and I was again able to download.

    URLSnooper link you provided , worked and then didn't work and then newer link from URLSnooper:
    Code:
    http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/9dXnKXR3CcrbZiatSFLS1A/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480129200/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=
    Code:
    http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/NPSGU-BVxcX9PKBtnkIL2Q/MTg0LjE5NS4yMjYuMjM0/1480172400/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=
    You can see they are a little bit different.

    I am totally clueless about the template:
    ffmpeg -user-agent "User-Agent=Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_1_2 like Mac OS X; ko-kr) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML,like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7D11 Safari/528.16" -i

    I can just copy it but I don't understand it. I tried just deleting all that, it seems like notes, but when I deleted it, I got an error message.

    EDIT
    OK, I see what you said. Eliminate most of the notes and replace with
    iPhone
    so the link becomes:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -user-agent "iPhone" -i "http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/NPSGU-BVxcX9PKBtnkIL2Q/MTg0LjE5NS4yMjYuMjM0/1480172400/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=" -vcodec copy -acodec copy output.ts
    So the template is this:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -user-agent "iPhone" -i "put http from URLSnooper here" -vcodec copy -acodec copy output.ts
    Livestreamer command is:
    Code:
    livestreamer --http-header "User-Agent=iPhone"  "hls://http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/NPSGU-BVxcX9PKBtnkIL2Q/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480172400/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=" best -o video.ts
    Livestreamer template is:
    Code:
    livestreamer --http-header "User-Agent=iPhone"  "hls://put http from URLSnooper here" best -o video.ts

    Question: Is there anyway to modify the code so it downloads a smaller resolution/file size? If the download size is fixed, is there a way to put something into the code that converts it to a smaller file size/resolution (like 640x360)? Of course I could just download the large file size/resolution and then re-encode it with some other software,but I pay for download data and it takes this computer a huge amount of time to re-encode. I tried substituting "worst" for "best" in livestreamer ie:
    Code:
    livestreamer --http-header "User-Agent=iPhone"  "hls://http://hyt4d6.vkcache.com/secip/0/NPSGU-BVxcX9PKBtnkIL2Q/NjguOC4xODkuMTk4/1480172400/hls-vod-s4/flv/api/files/videos/2014/10/06/1412551438bd536?socket=" worst -o video.ts
    but the file size/resolution was the same as before.

    As far as I can tell that video is only available in one size. The m3u8 only has a list of fragments.

    You could always reencode while you download with ffmpeg (instead of "-vcodec copy -acodec copy" select codecs and settings) but you'll still have to download the entire video. And if you use a slow encoder the download may terminate before the encoding is done (ie, the limited time url may expire). And that file isn't very large (~1.2 GB) for a 3 hour movie.
