Extracts streams from various services and pipes them into a video player of choice.

# To attempt to extract streams from the URL specified, and if it's successful, print out a list of available streams to choose from:
streamlink <>

# To open a stream with the specified quality:
streamlink <> <720p60>

# To select the highest or lowest available quality:
streamlink <> <best|worst>

# To specify which player to use to feed stream data to (VLC is used by default if found):
streamlink --player=<mpv> <> <best>

# To specify the amount of time to skip from the beginning of the stream. For live streams, this is a negative offset from the end of the stream (rewind):
streamlink --hls-start-offset <[HH:]MM:SS> <> <best>

# To skip to the beginning of a live stream, or as far back as possible:
streamlink --hls-live-restart <> <best>

# To write stream data to a file instead of playing it:
streamlink --output <path/to/file.ts> <> <best>

# To open the stream in the player, while at the same time writing it to a file:
streamlink --record <path/to/file.ts> <> <best>
