    Hello. I'm trying to record this stream from vaughnlive however if i would use rtmpdumphelper the recording will stop one the window where the player is showing the stream is closed. Is there any way to run this from the command line?. I tried several methods but the token changes all the time and when i try to use rtmpdump will not open the connection. Can somebody help me with this?. If a screenshot is added so i can understand the steps would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Try piping the hls with ffmpeg to your player, or save to a file:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i "https://hls-ord-2a.vaughnsoft.net:1443/ord/live/live_sherming5/playlist.m3u8" -c copy output.ts

    Ponens,
    I used the above code that you provided to download no problem. I'm curious how long would it take to download the complete video? Would it just keep downloading indefinitely? I aborted the download after a minute and the file that I got played fine.

    You are not downloading a VOD; you are recording a live stream in progress. It will continue until you stop recording it, or until the broadcast stops, whichever comes first.

  6. Ponens,
    Can you tell/show me how you got the m3u8 link (https://hls-ord-2a.vaughnsoft.net:1443/ord/live/live_sherming5/playlist.m3u8)
    I played the video and searched the network (Firefox adblock plus/Google chrome developer tools) and couldn't find any m3u8.

    Since your initial post, hls has been disabled for the stream. It was there when I initially checked it. Now it is gone (stream error: too many hls users).
    I don't know if it will be enabled again.

    Edit:
    hls is enabled again, at least for the moment:
    Code:
    https://hls-ord-1a.vaughnsoft.net/den/live/live_sherming5/playlist.m3u8
    However, the http referer must be set to https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming5 or else 403 will be the result.
    Stream could change again. You'll need to check how the stream is being sent at the time you want to play/save it.

  9. Tubedigger ($15) seems to record (digitally, not screen capture) the stream. You can download the trial version of Tubedigger and it has a 2 minute record limitation. I have the paid version and it seems to record indefinitely the live stream. Here is a 4 minute sample that I recorded:
    https://files.videohelp.com/u/61125/voot1.flv
    If you use Tubedigger, you must use the following settings (see below screenshot red numbers).
    1) click the circle #1 so that it says Monitor Browsers with a small ball in front
    2) click circle #2 so that it says Rec Mode
    2a) open Firefox or Chrome and start the live stream. Make sure the stream plays continuously (doesn't stop) in the browser.
    3) make sure in circle #3 "Rec" is blinking
    When you decide to stop recording the live stream, just close the browser (Firefox or Chrome) and Tubedigger will stop recording.
    The file (flv) will be in the Tubedigger video folder (bottom of screenshot). The flv can instantly be converted to mp4 using Convert button (bottom of screenshot).
    The recorded video should play perfectly, even though the live stream (played in browser) may be jerky. However, if the stream stops playing in the browser, then Tubedigger won't continue to record it.

    Can you please be more specific on what you meant by using the referer you mentioned above?. How do i change the code you posted so that it includes that because i am trying but all i get is that http error 403 forbidden.

    Something like this:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -headers "Referer: https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming5" -i "https://hls-ord-1a.vaughnsoft.net/den/live/live_sherming5/playlist.m3u8" -c copy output.ts
    If it changes again, play the stream in browser and filter the network traffic to find the new url.

  12. Code:
    ffmpeg -headers "Referer: https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming5" -i "https://hls-ord-1a.vaughnsoft.net/den/live/live_sherming5/playlist.m3u8" -c copy output.ts
    I just tried the above code that you gave (15 minutes earlier) and I get the following error message. What am I doing wrong?

    [https @ 02e0c860] No trailing CRLF found in HTTP header.
    [tls @ 02e0c980] The TLS connection was non-properly terminated.
    https://hls-ord-1a.vaughnsoft.net/den/live/live_sherming5/playlist.m3u8: Input/o
    utput error

    EDIT: I UPDATED TO LATEST ffmpeg (ver 3.3.2 July 11, 2017) and I was able to download the live stream on Windows 7 (but not Windows xp got dll error message). See bottom screenshot for Windows 7 command output - a little strange - but downloading OK.

    Try downloading other less old versions of ffmpeg until you find one that works with xp. I did a dirty patch to a 2015 version of ffmpeg to fix the "No trailing CRLF" error in windows, but I can't find that patched version right now.

  15. On Windows xp when I use the latest ffmpeg (3.3.2) I get this instant error message "entry point not found" (see below screenshot) when I paste in the above code. Using the previous version of ffmpeg I get CRLF error (see above screenshot). Using Windows 7 and latest version of ffmpeg I can download the stream no problem. Is there some kind of dll I can add to xp computer to fix the "entry point not found" error message?
