Full Description


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


Simple usage

docker run --rm --net=host blackxored/livestreamer best

Explicit port mapping

Container exposes streaming server at port 8080.

docker run --rm -p 8080:8080 blackxored/livestreamer

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 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 best
