Client to download all files from HLS streams

Project description

This is a simple Python HTTP Live Streaming Client. It consumes a list of remote playlists, and saves all needed files to serve the playlist locally: the key, segments, and a modified m3u8 with paths normalized.

It also supports backups, i.e., if the same playlist is available on more than one server, it will track each server status and will switch to the backup if needed.

Through the config.ini it’s possible to customize where the files will be saved and what is the URL that provides servers info via JSON.

The JSON must be something like:

    actives: [
            m3u8: "/msfc/Edge.m3u8",
            servers: [
            bitrates: [],
            needs_index: false


To run the client, simply run:

$ python -m hlsclient

Running tests

We use py.test for testing.

$ py.test
