  1. Hey I have been trying to stream a zee5 live tv channel using ffmpeg, but i am getting this error ::

    [https @ 0x558e0b0a3340] HTTP error 403 Forbidden Server returned 403 Forbidden (access denied)
    I Tried In VLC, MxPlayer And in Chrome Itself, It Works Fine But Doesn't Work With Ffmpeg:

    Code :
    ffmpeg -i "*~hmac=fc79cdf9742904fa556a38a4e627ba2b86813f4402f bf9086d0c36d8abc165ed" -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc "output.mp4"

    Can anyone help? thanks.

    Add some headers like user agent, referer and hdnts (very important). For example:

    ffmpeg -user_agent "user agent header" -referer "referer link" -headers "hdnts: hdnts value" -i ".../index.m3u8?hdnts=..." -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc "output.ts"
    Or use Streamlink:

    streamlink --http-header "User-Agent=x" --http-header "Referer=x" --http-query-param "hdnts=x" ".../index.m3u8?hdnts=..." best -o output.ts
