Full Description

livestreamer

Run livestreamer inside a Docker container.
Exposes a HTTP stream pointing to original content in port 8080.

Usage

Simple usage

docker run --rm --net=host blackxored/livestreamer twitch.tv/ultra best

Explicit port mapping

Container exposes streaming server at port 8080.

docker run --rm -p 8080:8080 blackxored/livestreamer twitch.tv/ultra

Advanced usage with config

For logging in and setting extra configuration options, you may mount
a file as a directory inside the container.

docker run --rm -p 8080:8080 -v ~/.livestreamerrc:/root/.livestreamerrc blackxored/livestreamer twitch.tv/ultra best

You can easily leverage this by creating a shell alias:

alias livestreamer="docker run -rm -p 8080:8080 -v ~/.livestreamerrc:/root/.livestreamerrc blackxored/livestreamer"

And then use it like:

livestreamer twitch.tv/ultra best

Connecting the video player

Depending on your OS, you need to point your player to either localhost, or the IP
of your Docker Linux VM. Ex: http://192.168.99.100:8080
