YouTube Live

Post by CuF » Thu May 15, 2014 8:12 pm

I'm aware that live content, especially from YouTube can be a problem since the video is sent segmented.
The thing is, at least with the videos I've seen, YouTube provides the entire stream from the beginning if you want to back up and see what you've missed.

I would think, and have no reason to believe it's true, that the non-live portion might be a continuous file.
That is, could FlashGot recognize the beginning and download from there instead of the current time and I suppose stay behind the actual live portion until the stream ends?

I know that's not very coherent, and to be fair, I don't know what I'm talking about.

I guess where I'm going is if the 'old' data in a live stream is more capture-able than the new data and can that be worked with?

Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=eeVDk6g1PM8
That is today's stream, but IndyCar currently has a live stream daily from noon to 6pm EST leading up to the Indy 500.

Maybe something here, How to download flash video RTMP/RTMPE streams using free software.
(Is it rtmp or just "chunks"?)

Honestly, I have no idea. It IS youtube and when I select FlashGot, it shows several small pieces available but no large file.
