I want to record streaming videos while they are being played in VLC.
I am playing an HLS stream in VLC using an M3U8 link. If I click Record in VLC to start the recording and click Record again to stop the recording, the recording is saved as an MP4 and can be played later. If the connection drops before I stop the recording in VLC, the saved MP4 is not finalized properly and is not playable--MOOV atom not found.
How do I get VLC to save the recording to another container format, like MPEGTS, FLV, or MKV, that will be playable if the stream connection drops while it is being recorded in VLC?
