Detect and Download M3U8 HLS Streams (HTTP Live Stream) in multiple threads to your local disk
This extension detects M3U8 streaming formats and offers to download this segmented streaming format as a single file to the user's local disk. The extension offers to select between different qualities and uses InDexedDB to store segments. It also merges all segments automatically when the file is fully fetched.
This extension uses multiple threads to download the HLS stream to increase the downloading speed and stability. Also, it supports resuming the download process when there is a network failure.
How to use it:
1. Go to a streaming website like https://videojs.com/
2. Wait until the toolbar color changes
3. Click on the toolbar button once to select a quality
4. Wait until the download is over. You can see the progress as a badge text.
To abort the active downloading job either refresh the tab or close the tab or press the toolbar button one.
