Just for "the google", you can already do that yourself with the pipe:// handler as described here: Custom_MPEG-TS_Input :)

I'm also interested in this feature. Will also have a look at Hanspeters' solution. Thanks

The code is not much tested and I hope that I didn't break the standard streaming. Anyway, only the first stream is used, others are ignored. v4.1-610-g9f21e59

@perexg .m3u8 is usually used for HLS playlist files so I'm not sure this support is that useful for that use case.

#8 Updated by Jaroslav Kysela over 1 year ago

HLS playlist seems to have multiple streams with some attributes. It should work if streams are MPEG-TS (first is selected at the moment). Of course, I would expect that users want to add some "fine" filter to select stream based on bandwidth or any other descriptor - language etc.). But, many sites uses .m3u just for the redirection.
