How to watch Toonami/Adultswim shows in mpv?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I was wondering if anyone knew how to watch shows and streams from Adultswim website in mpv? Apparently there is a way to do so using youtube-dl but I cant figure it out. I'm just trynna watch in mpv rather than using the web player and adobe flash. Any help is appreciated. 

 

For example, if i want to watch a Twitch livestream, all i have to do is open command prompt and write "mpv [twitch website link]" and youtube-dl handles the rest.

 

Is there any way to accomplish the same with Adultswim streams?

Adult Swim uses .m3u8 for their videos.

If mpv plays .m3u8s, then you should be able to use a raw link

Example:

 

 

Yeaup i can play that link in mpv. How do i obtain the the .m3u8 link for any show?

Not sure if that would be possible.

 

I don't personally delve in playing streams through video player (plus I don't use MPV) but I tried with VLC.

 

Unlocked episode played fine but locked did not, the seekbar (or whatever you call it) just infinitely bounces back and forth.

 

The cable-locked episodes (since you mentioned adobe flash, indicating the cable locked ones) are protected streams.

 

Would need some way of having the player authenticate, I assume. Does whatever you're watching not have any releases week to week?

Streaming may not be possible but then how are people ripping anime that airs on Toonami from AdultSwim website? Using youtube-dl?  

 

They are cable-locked episodes but people still seem to be grabbing them just fine.

Not sure how that interconnects... using a tool to download a protected stream versus putting a protected stream into your video player.

 

I was just essentially saying, go with the webrip releases to simplify things. (Which why I asked is there any releases for whatever show you're wanting to watch) Pretty sure I've seen just about every show covered in some form or fashion. (WebRIP, Sync to CR Video, etc)

For toonami (livestrem): I use a US VPN and my m3u8.

ffmpeg -i "http://video_url.com/adress_to_toonami_m3u8" -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc "toonami.mp4"


Then ffmpeg start his nice magic. Which results in: https://pastebin.com/1HHkEiWf (This paste was for the livestream)

When its finished or you stop it with pushing "q", then ur a haxx000r.

Which ends in a nice nice looking mp4: output.mp4

And some mediainfos:

Well, I guess that would work if you catch the live stream. (They have a live stream to watch the channel from the site if you don't want wait the few hours for it to get posted to the show page)

 

In terms of the episodes on the show page (cable locked), which is what TC is interested in, that doesn't work on though. Protected streams.

 

https://pastebin.com/55ZZvLiU

 

Didn't know could snag livestreams though, I had tried it awhile back but I couldn't get like the full episode. Only could snag from where I had jumped into the stream. So would be missing out.

 

Think I also remember the audio bitrate being a little lower, so I just stopped bothering with it.

Dude... everything in my post was about the livestream. :D

Yes it works. For now, its ok for me. And the TC asks how he can see it, I answered him. ;)
