    the problem is when i use ffmpeg to ( transcode|demux|something else ) .m3u8 from a remote server ( e.g akamaized.net ) , ffmpeg return (401 Unauthorized authorization failed) , this happens just when i use my vps ( ubuntu 14.04 ) . but when i try with my local windows it's work fine .

    ffmpeg command :
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i http://____REMOTE_SERVER___/live/index.m3u8
    returned error :
    Code:

    do i need to use any http headers ?
    and why it's working on my local windows and not in vps (ubuntu 14.04-x64) ?

    It is difficult to check without the actual server name.

    Does curl, wget, or a browser fetch the url on ubuntu?

    Try other ffmpeg versions.

    Otherwise it might be the header, cookie, or http referer.
