How can I download streaming for flv on VLC?

Hello All,

Can anyone teach me how to download flv streaming to VLC software?

Example: I know how to download streaming for HLS with this pattern “” but I don’t know how to download streaming with http-flv pattern.

Thank you in advance for your help.

If you’re playing a file called myStream.flv the path would be something like this:


In Wowza Streaming Engine, the default prefix is now “mp4:” to play a .flv file you must add the “flv:” prefix to the stream name.

If you need more help, type flv streams in the search above for forum posts as there are many discussions on this. Hope that helps

You could also consider converting your flv files to mp4 with something like ffmpeg and have access to more players.

Thank you very much. I will try to follow your instruction and keep you updated.
