    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 ?

    Thanks.

  3. 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.

  4. Since VLC can play the video it can also save it. Use Video -> Convert/Save. Give it the m3u8 URL, set the container to MPEG-TS, set video and audio to Keep Original Track, Save.

  5. @sscomp32, in which locale is direct access to the m3u8 url possible? The url returns 403 in at least some regions.

    Thanks. This wrks but VLC skips some frames. DIdnt have any problem like this with Streamlink.

    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.

    Thanks .

  8. I was able to download the video with youtube-dl by setting the user-agent to "VLC":

    Code:
    youtube-dl --no-part --user-agent "VLC" "http://mhms8.airtel.tv/PLTV/88888888/224/3221226392/01.m3u8"
    You can do the same with Streamlink:

    Code:
    streamlink.exe --http-header User-Agent="VLC" "http://mhms8.airtel.tv/PLTV/88888888/224/3221226392/01.m3u8" best -o output.ts
    It doesn't have to be "VLC". Pretty much anything other than "Mozilla" will work.
