This package belongs to a PPA: GetDeb Apps

Name: python-livestreamer


CLI for piping video streams to video players
Livestreamer is a Command Line Interface that pipes video
streams from various services into a video player,
such as VLC.
The main purpose of Livestreamer is to allow the user to
avoid buggy and CPU heavy flash plugins but still be able
to enjoy various streamed content.
Livestreamer is built upon a plugin system which allows
support for new services to be easily added.

Currently most of the big streaming services are
supported, e.g. Dailymotion, Livestream, Twitch,
Justin.tv, YouTube Live and Ustream.
For more in-depth usage see the full documentation
available at http://livestreamer.tanuki.se/.
