Livestreamer is CLI program that extracts streams from various services and pipes them into a video player of choice.

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, e.g. Dailymotion, Livestream, Justin.tv, Twitch, UStream and YouTube Live.

Installing

The latest stable version is available to install using pip:

$ pip install livestreamer

or installing from a source directory:

$ python setup.py install

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python has guides helping you install Python + pip on the most common operating systems.

Usage

The default behaviour of Livestreamer is to transport a stream to your player software (default is VLC).

$ 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
