You can use a browser extension like Video Download Helper or Stream Detector to grab the link to the live stream, then paste it into a media player. It can be a little tricky, you have to make sure the link ends in .m3u8 (delete what comes after the 8). Not all links work, some are made to expire.
Even working links might eventually change, so check regularly.

First of all thank you very much for answering to my question.
I am aware of this method and can find out most urls using Internet Download Manager but I would like to have them in a playlist with a fixed link.
In my Enigma 2 receiver for instance I have this fix code that resolves always to the correct url:
In vlc this is not a problem at all:
I can open the stream by this link:
So is there any trick to do this also in PotPlayer ?
Sorry, this is a little beyond me, but I was trying to open the short web urls in Potplayer... Here's what you can try:
Install latest LAV Filters https://files.1f0.de/lavf/nightly/
Install 3DYD Source Filter https://ys.3dyd.com/
Set stream analysis in both filters to 10000 ms (10 seconds)
3DYD can also make use of youtube-dl (both are not just for Youtube)
I set all filters to prefered in Potplayer, again, all this was a little tricky to get working.
So you got it working ?
I am trying to follow your steps but obviously there is something missing.
First of all I have installed everything you've mentioned before.
Then I set in LAV Splitter Configuration
Network Settings -> Stream Analysis Duration to 10000
But I don't know where to set this in 3DYD.
In Youtube Source (x64) is this the setting Network -> Main -> Maximum reconnection delay (seconds) ?
And last but not least I am not sure where to set the filters in PotPlayer as preferred.
Am I right here ?
Filter Management -> Filter Priority -> Custom Filter Manager
Add Registered Filter:
3DYD Youtube Source
LAV Splitter Source
I have set all to "Prefer"
If this all was right then it should be able to open this link resolving to the correct url, right ?
Your stream is geo-restricted, I can't open the short url video stream (I'm in Canada)
In 3DyD: General -> Probe limit per stream 10000
For example, I can open Nessma I linked above, like this https://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x7lmd4f
It takes a long time... I've always had trouble opening certain streams with Potplayer, especially secure HTTPS ones.
After opening the stream, the Filters right-click context shows:
3DYD Youtube Source
Oh I was't aware of that euronews live streams are geoblocked. I am located in Germany and euronews in all languages work.
Now that I have changed
In 3DyD: General -> Probe limit per stream to 10000
I have tried to open the Nessma stream in PotPlayer but it does not open (in Firefox directly no problem at all) and this is what I get:
23:57:51, libcurl (internal): libcurl/7.68.0 Schannel zlib/1.2.11 brotli/1.0.7 nghttp2/1.40.0 23:57:51, ffmpeg (internal): lavf 58.29.100, lavc 58.54.100, lavu 56.31.100 23:57:51, #01, Analysis, https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7lmd4f 23:57:51, #01, Opening given Dailymotion URL... 23:57:51, [error] #01, Analysis, no video found on Dailymotion URL 23:57:51, #01, Ready
I don't understand the errors, but I have the latest Potplayer 201209 with all the Opencodec filters:
I'm on Windows 10 with all C++ Redist/Runtimes installed
Same configuration also here but I cannot remember if I have installed C++ Redist/Runtimes so I installed them now (again ?).
Did you install that Opencodec with all filters selected?
It's because of stream troubles with Potplayer that I also use SMPlayer/MPV, that combination can open anything.
Edit: In 3DYD General Analyze URLs from unsupported sites enabled.
3DYD Maintenance Third Party Binaries, add Youtube-dl.exe (right-click and point to it)

I have uninstalled PotPlayer and reinstalled it and Opencodec with all filters as well during the installation routine.
SMPlayer I had not tested yet and although it looks very simple it can play twitch, youtube and dailymotion streams without any further configuration which is indeed quite impressive !!
On the other hand it cannot open links like this here:
And it also does not show greek characters, maybe a unicode support problem ?
Anyway, i would like to use PotPlayer.
I have enabled "3DYD General Analyze URLs from unsupported sites" but still it does not open any dailymotion url.
P.S.: I do believe that PotPlayer is not configured correctly so I have made some screenshots.
Maybe you can find anything that I have misunderstood ?

I can open the Greek link in both players, you may need to update MPV:
Extract into the mpv subfolder in SMPlayer (v20.6) folder (it also has an update script)
In 3DYD Maintenance, Third Party Binaries, add Youtube-dl.exe (right-click and point to it)
I just haven't discovered a simpler way for Potplayer to open those types of streams, or for it to use youtube-dl.exe directly.
Also tick the LAV Splitter and Source (I think the player can use them anyway because they are registered)
In Potplayer Preferences, Filter Control, Source/Splitter, click Filter Management and click Scan.

Youtube-dl.exe was invisible for 3DYD.
I wonder why PotPlayer has not implemented direct playback of dailymotion and other streams yet.
Thank you so much for helping me.
I wish you all the best.
