Extract web streams and pipe them into video player of choice
Livestreamer is a Command Line Interface that pipes video streams from various services into a video player, such as VLC. The main purpose of Livestreamer is to allow the user to avoid buggy and CPU heavy flash plugins but still be able to enjoy various streamed content.
Livestreamer is built upon a plugin system which allows support for new services to be easily added. Currently most of the big streaming services are supported, such as Dailymotion Livestream Twitch/Justin.tv YouTube Live UStream
