I have a stream that plays very well in vlc but when i try to record it using streamlink its shows 502:Bad Gateway error
What could be the problem and how can i use streamlink to record this ?
The normal streamlink commands don't work.
Here is the link of the stream: http://mhms8.airtel.tv/PLTV/88888888/224/3221226392/01.m3u8
Also can any other program record this stream ?

What? i posted the link in the post. here it is againCode:
The webpage link from which you are able to play the video in the first instance.
If the link is derived from some app or other source, then the link to a source where the video is able to actually be played is required.
@sscomp32, in which locale is direct access to the m3u8 url possible? The url returns 403 in at least some regions.
India, for one.
For others asking, Its from a mobile network TV app called airtel TV android app only available in India and only to Airtel users.
This used to work till dec last year without any problem but now it doesn't.
I was able to download the video with youtube-dl by setting the user-agent to "VLC":
youtube-dl --no-part --user-agent "VLC" "http://mhms8.airtel.tv/PLTV/88888888/224/3221226392/01.m3u8"
streamlink.exe --http-header User-Agent="VLC" "http://mhms8.airtel.tv/PLTV/88888888/224/3221226392/01.m3u8" best -o output.ts
