Extracts streams from various services and pipes them into a video player of choice. More information:

  • Attempt to extract streams from the URL specified, and if it's successful, print out a list of available streams to choose from:

streamlink {{}}

  • Open a stream with the specified quality:

streamlink {{}} {{720p60}}

  • Select the highest or lowest available quality:

streamlink {{}} {{best|worst}}

  • Use a specific player to feed stream data to (VLC is used by default if found):

streamlink --player={{mpv}} {{}} {{best}}

  • Skip a specific amount of time from the beginning of the stream. For live streams, this is a negative offset from the end of the stream (rewind):

streamlink --hls-start-offset {{[HH:]MM:SS}} {{}} {{best}}

  • Skip to the beginning of a live stream, or as far back as possible:

streamlink --hls-live-restart {{}} {{best}}

  • Write stream data to a file instead of playing it:

streamlink --output {{path/to/file.ts}} {{}} {{best}}

  • Open the stream in the player, while at the same time writing it to a file:

streamlink --record {{path/to/file.ts}} {{}} {{best}}
