Streamlink Reviews

about Streamlink · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Plugins allow you to use just streamlink to view (or indeed record) streams.
Works well, and for those inclined has massive customisation through CLI options (or config file).
Provides a very stable route to watch streams, and supports authentication to some major services common to a lot of users.
Whilst you can achieve some of the same things via say ffmpeg, the level of options in streamlink gives you ability to adjust on a per-site basis how you want to process things, timeouts, etc.
Brilliant app, and if you have the knowledge you can extend via your own plugins.

Best way to experience livestreams (youtube/twitch and many others)

Get rid of those shitty unoptimized flash/html5 players!

Plus, allows you to download (some) streams, so you can watch them later
