Streamlink is a command-line utility that pipes video streams from various
services into a video player, such as VLC. The main purpose of Streamlink is to
allow the user to avoid buggy and CPU heavy flash plugins but still be able to
enjoy various streamed content. There is also an API available for developers
who want access to the video stream data. This project was forked from
Livestreamer, which is no longer maintained.
