Detect and Download M3U8 HLS Streams (HTTP Live Stream) in multiple threads to your local disk

Image from store Live Stream Downloader
Description from store This extension detects M3U8 streaming formats on the active tab and offers to download these segmented streams as a single file to the user's local disk. This extension detects all possible video qualities and uses direct disk writing to store segments. So there is no need to have a recovery plan from a possible crash. Your data is written instantly to the local file and is ready to use. It also merges all segments automatically when the file is fetched. To improve download capability, the extension also sets the referrer header of the original page. This extension uses multiple threads to download the HLS stream to increase the downloading speed and stability. Also, it supports resuming the download process when there is a network failure (Thanks to the TDM.JS engine). How to use it: 1. Go to a streaming website like https://videojs.com/ 2. Wait until the toolbar color changes 3. Click on the toolbar button once to select a quality 4. Wait until the download is over. You can see the progress as a badge text. Features: 1. Download HSL Streams 2. Detect any audio, video, or media streams on the active tab 3. Uses multi-threading to increase download speed 4. Write directly to the disk 5. Supports detecting many audio and video formats 6. Retries several times to fetch each segment even if downloading is broken or you get disconnected from the internet for a short period. 7. Keep awake while downloading a file (this feature is optional; use Ctrl + P or Command + P when the interface is open to enable it) 8. Download any arbitrary file with multiple threads and network failure protection (copy the link and use Ctrl + V or Command + V to add it as a new job to the interface) 9. Unlimited retires. The extension uses multiple threads to fetch the data as fast as possible. If a thread breaks, the extension retries several times to reconnect to the server. Even after multiple tries, the extension pauses the downloading process and displays a prompt to resume when the network issue is fixed. 10. Suitable to download very large files for two reasons: 1) It is the fastest downloader because of multiple thread fetching. 2) it writes directly to the disk, so there is no need to move the file from the internal storage to the local disk later. Use Cases: 1. You want to store a multi-segmented stream to your local disk for later use. 2. On an unstable network, you can use this extension to fetch a video file and start watching it with your media player even when it is not yet fully downloaded. Extra Features: 1. You can download any file with this tool. Just drag and drop the link to the interface. Since it uses multiple simultaneous threads to fetch data, you can get the file a lot faster. Also, the downloader is protecting you against network failures and resumes interrupted downloads. 2. This downloader writes directly to the disk and can handle a download speed of about 300 MBytes / seconds. This is the best you can get even with native download managers. Content Creators: If for any reason, you want this extension to ignore your website, please open a bug report on the GitHub repository.

  • (2023-09-17) Anno Niem: Nope, another one that doesn't do a good job in the file naming department. Stream Downloader does a better job. Too bad, having the download's go trough a new window has some merit although it does clutter up the task bar so 1 window and then tabs for added download options would be better. Also not a fan of it saving files as .mkv, I rather have .mp4 files but that's just my personal preference.

  • (2023-06-24) Pavel Yakupov: Реально сработало. Пришлось повозиться в поисках, пока не нашел это расширение
  • (2023-06-22) Camilo CBG: It can't find the file/playlist of live streams on Steam Store.
  • (2023-06-19) carina Herpich: Free and works for M3u8. Only extension that really works (More than 30 tested before)
  • (2023-06-18) Yuriy Kirillov: Работает с kinescopecdn, но дорожка аудио и видео качаются по отдельности. После приходится склеивать своими силами. Если требуется просмотр только на ПК, можно использовать MediaPlayerClassic и в нем вручную подключать звуковую дорожку.
  • (2023-06-16) Zakaria: Great
  • (2023-06-14) Natan Santos: Muito top, cumpre oque promete.
  • (2023-06-08) kazakooma: This was a great tool for years but over the past couple weeks it has not worked and has downloaded unreadable files, cannot even be converted after the fact.
  • (2023-06-06) Mahdi Sadeghian Tehrani: Awesome Finally found something that works
  • (2023-06-05) Mohamed Abou Al Hagag: This tool is so powerful in concern of detecting the live stream file (It can even detect the subtitle file if it was exist! and that's a rare thing!) however for downloading it is not the best solution because: - it does not download the file in Mp4 format! - It does not rename the file as it shows in front of you on the web! - And I sometimes experienced that the download stuck at 99%! Finally there is a way for taking advantage of this tool is by using it's detecting function and copy the link and paste to any external downloading program (It can become a handy!) And it is a free tool! so thanks to the developer and I hope you can Improve it in the future!
  • (2023-05-26) P P: Jesus christ I've tried so many different methods for downloading m3u8 files this one is the best!!! Huge thanks!!!!
  • (2023-05-21) Dav Alexander: Is there anyway to download the file in MP4 format?
  • (2023-05-16) Blue: Extremely useful for download streams off of Twitch alternative Kick. I've only tried it with streams that already ended so idk if it works while the stream is still going but it works great for downloading streams that are already over. Saves a lot of time and effort over having to screen record a stream.
  • (2023-05-06) Zyla Xabi: the files this extension saves can't be played. Is there any fix for this?
  • (2023-05-01) Magno Alberto: Já testei diversos e esse foi o único que funcionou perfeitamente como esperava. Fiz até questão de avaliar. Obrigado ao desenvolvedor!!!
