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.

  • (2022-10-02) Jitender Virmani: Not working, Getting Error as window.showDirectoryPicker is not a function. Kindly check this
  • (2022-09-30) Plebtoshi: Extremely useful extention. i just found out that if you can find the spot on the unsupported websites, where they hide the download urls. you can just copy paste all of the 25 lines of formated/half encrypted jibberish into the extention window and it will automatically extract/decode the download urls! For this website/projecty i will download the 720p .mkv video and the 360p .mp4 video. the .mkv got no sound but higher resolution. so i will take the sound from the 360p .mp4 video and merge it with the 720p .mkv with no audio. likely with the legendary opensource ffmpeg tool. (no audio files to download it seems) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- new trick i just discovered. on my target website i suddenly could not download any videos today. after a lot of trial and error i found the solution after giving up. i had to delete the cookies & log out from the website it seems. that means the website likely got a cookie that on purpose make downloads not downloading. even after restarting chrome, turning extention on/off, log-out and log-in of website etc. it was a cookie OR that fact that i had turned the extention permissions from "everywhere" to "only when you click the extention". most likely it was deleting the cookies that did the trick. sometimes if your downloads dont download (extention is also given 0 workers = 0 cpu cores to do the job) the fix seems to be restarting google chrome.

  • (2022-09-06) Utku Garip: İndirilen dosya boyutunun kaç GB/MB olduğunu göstermiyor, sadece % bilgisi var. İndirme işlemini görmek isterdim, niye gizli indiriliyor, anlamadım. Türkçe dil desteğini, metinlerin az olmasına rağmen beklerdim. Topluluk çevirisi (crowdin.com) olsaydı keşke. Tek tük eksikleri var bence, bir çok indirici uzantısını ezer geçer.

  • (2022-08-30) Alex Ansel: Amazing it helped me A lot!!!! Thanks!!!
  • (2022-08-26) Robert Schiemann: Works great without any issues!
  • (2022-08-22) Infamy Lewis: UPDATE (8/22/2022): Back to being broken completely. Only way I can select the file I want to download from the list is by hitting "Select All", because the check box and the download buttons by each item don't work. The "Download All" button works when everything is selected, but it won't let you actually download anything even though it makes you select a folder to download to. Original: 4 STARS After using this app for months, it stopped working for months. I found a replacement that was worse but did the job most of the time by essentially recording videos in the background as they play but it was a slow trash way of doing the job. I went to search for another replacement after the replacement didn't work on the video and I find out that this extension is working again. The user interface is clunky and buttons don't always work but the extension does what it's supposed to again finally.

  • (2022-08-17) Narayana Konakalla: Tried too many apps or chrome extensions to download HLS (HTTP Streaming videos). None of them worked except this. Using this extension was very easy. Other extensions were asking to upgrade to premium. This is a 100% free extension without any limitations w.r.t no. of files you can download back to back.
  • (2022-08-15) 野风: 牛逼,跟cococut不相上下了。期待中文版
  • (2022-08-13) Skull Candy: Yo I needed something to download stuff like voe or other stream-site videos and this actually worked perfectly. It (to be honest) looks like barebone trash but it does exactly what it does. You go to the site with the vid, you download it and thats it. I have only tested it with voe-videos so far but it did the job perfectly <3
  • (2022-08-10) Newman Kidman: TEAM Live Stream Downloader, your downloader worked for me excellently, thank you. However, in order for it to go the extra step from excellence to perfection, you need to make the UI, User Interface, more user-friendly and visually appealing. You can make it more user-friendly by having an option for us to choose the minimum file size we wish to be displayed for download. Many downloaders, including yours, make it too hard and unpleasant for the user by showing a lot of very small files on the display. We only need the file playing on screen in its highest or second highest resolution if the former is too high for our PC to handle such as 8K. Thank you very much
