How to download m3u8 and ts video movie streams.

m3u8 Downloading

  1. Open Chrome Developer tools and click the Network tab.
  2. Navigate to the page with the video and get it to start playing.
  3. Filter the list of files to "m3u8".
  4. Find master.m3u8 or index.m3u8 and click on it.
  5. Save the file to disk and look inside it.
  6. If the file contains a single m3u8 master url, copy that one instead.
  7. Run the program m3u8x.
  8. Paste the same m3u8 url in both textboxes (URL and Quality URL) and click "Headers" and set the referral url and user-agent from the request as found in Chrome.
  9. Select the Video format of "MP4".
  10. Checkmark "One .. One".
  11. Click "Download".
  12. A dialog will display with all of the individual .ts files. Click "Download" to download them all and join them together.

Auto-Clicking Continue Dialog

Occasionally, the download of one of the .ts files may fail and a dialog will displaying asking to continue or not. You can automatically click "Yes" and continue downloading everything by using a tool such as Buzof.

I made a python script to automate this. All you need to do is provide an m3u8 file.

@TheDynomike is your tool able to work with encrypted videos?

Thank you very much, this solution worked great for me. I was able to get all the videos my mom asked me for, because she wasnt able to download them. I wasn't aware of this whole m3u8 thing, glad I found this post :) 👍
