If we go here http://m.streamlive.to and sign up using a bogus email; IE: mailinator we can view all the free streams from that site in our chosen local media player, if using Windows or OSX id recommend using VLC, if using a moar ethical OS (wherein you are not a commodity) i suggest using MPV. Once you have logged in then browse to the stream of your choice,
click the link which says “Play Link 1 (HLS) for iOS & Android”Above link has since been removed so we need to create our own .m3u8 playlist, see below.
In Firefox browser we can right click the video player and choose ‘copy video location’ paste it into new tab and the .m3u8 playlist will then download, have MPV/VLC open playlist file in settings under content, make MPV/VLC default handler for rtmp and mp3 streamed (audio/x-mpegurl) mimetypes, or open it manualy.
when clicked your browser will begin downloading a small .m3u8 playlist file, usually to the /tmp directory, all that’s required is to open that .m3u8 file with your media player (preferably MPV or VLC) and that’s it. happy viewing ..
Should your browser not be configured to automagically download the .m3u8 file after
clicking the “Play Link 1 (HLS) for iOS & Android” hyperlink, heres how to create your own .m3u8 playlist file …
Have a gander at this template .m3u8 playlist file, note the long URL on line 3 ..
If we then browse to chosen stream webpage and use browser to view the page source, line 146/465 gives us the relevant long url which is akin to the long URL in line 3 of the template .m3u8, replacing part of line 3 of the template file with same part of the long URL you have just copied from line 146 of the ‘page source’ will create your own playlist file, open it with MPV or VLC.
the ‘view page source’ looks like this .. replace the highlighted part of your chosen stream URL with whats in this template, once you have pasted in your chosen stream URL save the file as foo.m3u8, go ahead and make it executable and then open it in MPV or VLC.
In http://www.streamlive.to the page source’ we interested in is in one of these two lines of code ..
The URL’s change randomly so expect to have to do the same tomorrow to view same stream by simply swapping out old URL with the new, iv’e found both above and below URL’s will work. Just start the copy of URL from _definst_/ onward and paste into same part in the template.
In the mobile version of site http://m.streamlive.to the ‘page source’ we interested in is here ..
