    After some time to understand my problem, I learned how to extract any m3u file from live stream using browser development tools.
    It's really simple, when you know what you are looking for... Inspect element, go to network tab and filter for m3u

    If you are luck you can play/download directly with ffplay but many times you will receive a denied access. This is another problem!

    Btw I want to make a C# app to extract this info (the m3u adress) from an URL : which approach should I use ??

    I already work with scraping tools but in this case I need to search in the network traffic ..

    Thanks in advance

  2. Why on earth would you want a C+ (or any other language program) to filterURL in Network tab for m3u8 ?

    You will more than likely need to add the referer header to ffplay to avoid the 404. Sometimes you will need to add user-agent and origin too.

    Or you could load the m3u8 into VLC:

    Media > Open network stream > click Network tab > paste m3u8 url into space > Play
