To answer my own question: No, it will not interrupt you. Even if you go over the time limit, you can watch the entire movie as long as you start before the 24 hour mark. Apparently this is no longer true, and the movie will stop playing as soon as it expires.

Here's my Windows batch script that supports all latest Periscope updates, plus has an option to download multiple replays, record live streams, convert .ts to .mp4 and rotate it, if necessary. Uses console tools curl, aria2, jq, ffmpeg and two bat scripts by Dave Benham - getTimestamp and JREPL (big thanks for them). Download (16 mb): https://drive....

Most probably there's no way to do that. Here's what they say on their site: TED uses an HLS-based player (as opposed to Flash) that’s built in-house. The video player is designed to automatically adjust video quality based on your internet bandwidth. If you find that the video quality is poor or that the video pauses too often, try downloading the ...

I have stuttering issues with Silverlight 5 in Netflix, especially after Silverlight updates. I figured out that it is a combination of settings and the video card driver being used. Silverlight does not play nice with HD or 3dp video card drivers. Try these steps if your video in Silverlight seems choppy, stutters, audio gets off, or the image looks like it ...

After further searching, I've found plug-ins for both Firefox and Chrome that handle both the Flash and HTML5 attempts to auto-play videos on CNN. It appears that CNN is now trying up to six times to auto-play a video, and these plug-ins catch them all! https://www.technologyhint.com/stop-video-autoplay-chrome-firefox/

You’ll need a Google+ Account for that. According to the Google blog post, users can broadcast their live hangout to their Google+ stream, but also to their YouTube channel or their website. It’s those last two items, and primarily the option to broadcast live to YouTube/live as well as Google+ that makes the general availability of Hangouts On Air so ...

Yes. Since you are downloading the video either way, it would use the same bandwidth. A streaming video is in a format that you can watch AS you download, when combined with buffering. Buffering, as you may know is the downloading of a small portion before the video actually starts. It works when you are using an internet connection that will allow you ...

That depends in what quality your are downloading and streaming it, but if they are the same the downloaded data will be equivalent. If of course you will watch till the end.

Uninstall Silverlight and watch using Adobe Flash player instead. First delete these files: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/Silverlight.plugin /Library/Receipts/Silverlight.pkg /Library/Receipts/Silverlight_W2_MIX.pkg /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/WPFe.plugin /Library/Receipts/WPFe.pkg After you uninstall Silverlight, load the video page and click the Or watch ...

Maybe your connection is not good enough for HD streaming. If that is the case, on the video page (example page for Under the Dome), click on "Also available in Standard Definition" to switch to standard definition and it should play smoothly.

It is most likely an issue specific to your graphics card. Please file a bug at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Core then choose the video/audio component. Paste in the information from about:support and the right people will get notified and will jump onto it immediately.

I haven't tested this hypothesis enough to confirm it: but there was at least one time when I resumed a rental which had more than an hour left on it with the ticker telling me I had 20 minutes or so left, and yet I was able to finish the movie uninterrupted. Based on that info, I think the way it works is that the ticker is measuring how much time you have ...

Depending on the video streaming site the data is most likely automatically being stored in your browsers cache. Usually this data is not easily accessible nor is it easy to piece together. I highly suggest taking a look at a program such as JDownloader which will find the video sources on pages and allow you to download them in various qualities. Therefore ...

I know this won't be a popular answer but I was having the same problems watching Amazon videos in the Chrome browser. Since I was using a Windows machine, I just started watching in Internet Explorer and it worked just fine. It would appear that Silverlight is optimized for Explorer.

If the user is using the "stream now"-feature, you can simply access it via youtube.com/channelURLhere/live, and recording a stream can be done via any screen recording tool really, there ought to be a couple in your repo – if in doubt VLC or OBS should do the job. That said, YouTube automatically saves all live streams up to 12 hours, though the streamer ...

Found answer at Stack Overflow (the only difference was *.vtt instead of *.srt): To get any file downloaded by an swf loaded with by a html page, you can use your browser developer tool and look on the Network log ( chrome in my case ):

I think what you are referring to is hosting. To host a channel you can either use a chat command in your chat (/host channelname) or you can go to that channel and click the host button on the bottom right. You can also manage your autohosts in twitch settings under your account (channels & videos)

You can access captions through the Vimeo API. The Text Track endpoints allow you to retrieve direct links to the caption files.

youtube-dl supports downloading from periscope.tv. I've tried it with live streaming and past events, and it works for both.

From my test I found the following: During a live broadcast, on average the last 15-20 live chunk files are still available. A chunk is usually 3 seconds, so that means you can retrospectively go back about a minute in the past before they are deleted from the CDN. This is not always the case and some times you will not be able to go back that far. Also ...

There are two option available to play the youtube video and you need to select one (i) Always choose the best quality for my connection and player size (ii) I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video This can be seen in the setting page by going to settings -> playback and it is applicable for globally. If you have chosen the 1st ...

Unfortunately Google deprecated this feature August 2016. Or rather its available only in Google Cloud platform plan, no longer a feature of Google drive. As they want to focus on their core user experience.

%3Frel%3D0 is just the URL encoded version of ?rel=0 You can check it here. And can read more about URL encoding here. Why this happens only sometimes and not some other times, I don’t know, but is exactly the same thing. And I think the fmt parameter is deprecated, which means most likely it will not work.

Unfortunately, no. There is currently no way to do a private stream on Twitch. As an alternative, you could use YouTube to host your private livestream.

Do you mean by using Google Hangout? Then the answer is yes. It is similar to embedding a YouTube video. Once you have started airing your video, Hangout generates a YouTube link and the embed code which can be used to display it live on any website. See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdXogKQTVbE It is for WordPress but you can do similar ...

The stats are visible on videos when you watch them on the site. There are no user engagement metrics clearly available from this view, but it is not clear if these stats are the "Advanced Statistics" from the marketing blurb, or if there may be engagement metrics in a different view/area of the site.

Short answer Now Youtube offers more options for live streaming. You could still use Hangouts on Air but also could use the Stream Now [BETA], but if you still want to use Hangouts on Air, you will require a Google+ profile or Google+ page. Extended answer Hangouts on Air requires a Google+ profile or Google+ page connected to a Youtube Channel. It's ...

You can try youtube-dl - a python-script. http://youtube-dl.org/ If you use a little script-magic, you can easily make it download a list of videos or all the videos in a channel. EDIT: No need for script-magic. There are options allowing you to specify a file with video-URLs. And if given the URL of a playlist or a channel, it'll download all the ...
