And so we’re here at the second weekend of Tomorrowland 2017, and of course we have 4 stages streaming, and we want to help you out and have you watch all 4 stages simultaneously on our page here.
Why write about Tomorrowland 2017? well, simply because it creates a myriad of amazing livesets, which all can be recorded and saved for the future. Plus all those interviews, beautiful people, all chock full of molly.. It’s an amazing time!
Also this creates a unique opportunity to finally write about recording live streaming video. I’ve been doing it for the past 5-6 years, and I’ve noticed that very very few people can actually record live streams.
Tools for Recording Live Streams
Well, for the first reason, – none of the websites and browser plugins can record live streaming video. One of the caveats being that video is live and noone knows when it ends.. So websites cannot do live. There is also that thing called live playlist, and very few really know what it is.
And for the second reason, most software cannot do live stream ripping either. The 2 that can rip live video streams are Youtube-DL and Livestreamer (i haven’t touched on the latter yet here on SaveTube).
But these 2 can do the work right. If you’re interested on how to do it, – simply scroll down below all the video embeds and read on!

The events will have their own performances, which will be streamed, as well as partly streaming from main event in Belgium. So watch out, this stream starts Saturday afternoon, maybe something interesting will come out of it.. If you’re interested, check out Tomorrowland Facebook Page events to see more.
How to record Tomorrowland 2017 live stream
Well, this is an easy cake. All you need to do is discover the playlist URLs for the embeds I’m using above to show live stream on my website. And then feed those playlists to youtube-dl. To discover the playlist, click play on any of the top 4 videos and then press CTRL+SHIFT+I (in chrome, you can also do RIght-Click and then click Inspect). And in there switch to NETWORK tab and add filter “m3u8” and now see if any links are shown.
Mine is http://tomorrowland-live.secure.footprint.net/hls-live/Tomorrowland-main/_definst_/live/stream7.m3u8 – which i will copy and paste to cmd.exe where i have youtube-dl all ready for me:
This will record Channel 1 for me, it its highest HD quality of almost 5.5mbps. it will look something like this on the screen:
frame= 107 fps= 42 q=-1.0 size= 3167kB time=00:00:04.99 bitrate=5196.4kbits/s speed=1.76x frame= 128 fps= 39 q=-1.0 Lsize= 3730kB time=00:00:05.78 bitrate=5285.1kbits/s speed=1.76x
to start ripping channel 2, simply do these steps or easier – replace word “main” in the m3u8 file URL with word “freedom”. Now for channel 3 – do same but with “channel3” and same for channel4 – use replacement with “channel4” instead of “main”. So easy – can’t even imagine why thousands of people aren’t doing it.. Well, good lick!
