    Basic streamlink syntax is incorrect - and put streamlink into your Windows Filepath, FFS !
    https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm

    Your first double quotation mark is tight up to the end of .exe when it should be tight up to the start of https:

    Code:
    streamlink "https://g005-sf-us-cmaf-prd-ll.cdn.pea****tv.com/pub/global/gTk/cGU/4214702/cmaf/1618603804307.7896/mpeg_2sec/master_cmaf.m3u8" best -o ml.ts
    Best to always get into the habit of surrounding the m3u8 with double quotes. Won't matter if there are no gaps in the url, but WILL matter if there are.

    Not tested to see if works either. But will not work if your basics are incorrect. AFAIK, this site is WV and streamlink will not therefore DL it anyway. Plus if you CAN DL it you will need the keys.

    Also, you would normally DL a separate Video + Audio stream for this site.

    Great thread! New member here also attempting this. I've found that the m3u8 URL only appears in the network tab after you start playing. But it does work!

    I have a question though. Streamlink says

    Available streams: live (worst, best)
    Opening stream: live (hls)


    Does that mean it's using the best stream?

    Just type best after the command, just in case.

    Thanks, I used best but wasn't sure if I needed to do something different to make it choose live (best) ... I looked through all the documentation I could find but nothing about streams that have live (best, worst)

    I'm surprised it's only 1280x720 but the bitrate matches what the browser player shows, 3-5mbps

    I just figured out there are multiple streams with different m3u8 URLS for some videos. Some have just one ending in _1 but other videos have multiple streams with _0, _1, all the way to _4. The lowest number is the highest quality as far as I can tell. The best I've gotten was 5-7mbps 1080P. Sometimes, maybe all the time, you can copy and paste the last part of a URL onto another one and force the higher res!
