Livestreamer is command-line utility that extracts streams from various services and pipes them into a video player of choice.

Project Description

Overview

Livestreamer is a command-line utility that pipes video streams from various services into a video player, such as VLC. The main purpose of Livestreamer is to allow the user to avoid buggy and CPU heavy flash plugins but still be able to enjoy various streamed content. There is also an API available for developers who want access to the video stream data.

Features

Livestreamer is built upon a plugin system which allows support for new services to be easily added. Currently most of the big streaming services are supported, such as:

… and many more. A full list of plugins currently included can be found on the Plugins page.

Quickstart

The default behaviour of Livestreamer is to playback a stream in the default player (VLC).

# pip install livestreamer
$ livestreamer twitch.tv/day9tv best
[cli][info] Found matching plugin twitch for URL twitch.tv/day9tv
[cli][info] Opening stream: source
[cli][info] Starting player: vlc
