    Description

    A CLI tool to scrape video streams off of an Ifvod thread, it

    • saves video streams as mp4 video files
    • groups video files from the same thread into a sub-folder
    • remembers downloaded video streams
    • provides the option to filter video streams by date, and removes downloaded video files that are out of date

    Prerequisites

    This tool utilizes ffmpeg to fetch and save hls video streams. Make sure ffmpeg is installed and it:

    • supports https

    $ ffmpeg -protocols 2>/dev/null | grep https

    • supports x.264

    $ ffmpeg -codecs 2>/dev/null | grep 264

    Usually, a homebrew install would have these covered. If you're compiling ffmpeg yourself, on the Raspberry Pi for example, please read: compile-and-install-ffmpeg.md

    Also, make sure the system clock is showing the correct date and time

    $ date
