  1. Hello.

    So, I'm trying to record this stream

    I get a list of m3u8 files, all with the same name like this one:

    but when I try to download the video, I fail miserably

    I've tried ffmpeg, youtube-dl & livestream, but all I get is the 403 Forbidden error

    IDM helps a little, but all it gets is 30s long files, it kinda sucks to press download every 30 secs
    any chance this can be automated? TIA

    Can you play the m3u8 in VLC?
    Perhaps it can save it to your HDD? I think the downside to this method is that it's done in realtime,

  6. thank you for your help.
    Unfortunately I'm unable to use streamlink, no matter what version I'm trying to run (even w/out any parameters) all I get is
    "failed to create process"
