How To Download m3u8 videos from Twitter

How To Download m3u8 videos from Twitter
By Chongchen Saelee

If you’re browsing websites like Twitter or Facebook, you may notice videos may not be accessible for download. Back in the day, it was quite easy because the actual video file is embedded right into the page. These days, with privacy concerns (and copyright issues), Internet videos are becoming harder to “save for offline viewing”. But with a little know-how, you could successfully save these videos for offline viewing. After all, the data has to be sent to your computer anyway.

So particularly for m3u8 file format, which is just a plain text file that includes a playlist of urls to source videos (and sometimes other playlists), what you’re looking for are ts video source urls. Of course, you have to track down the url of the m3u8 file first. In Google Chrome, there is the very helplful “inspect” tool in the Developer Tools menu. Or, if it hasn’t been obfuscated, you can right-click on the part of the webpage wear the video will render and click on “Inspect” if that option is enabled. Then you want to track down that url for the m3u8 file. Download the m3u8 file and open it with a plain text editor like Notepad. (more…)

You don’t give a rat’s testicle how glitzy the graphical user interface is, or what additional plugins are available. You just want it fast and secure. Up until now, Google has spied and copied many features from their users and competitors and have created a very competent browser. However, it’s getting to be a real pain having to constantly wait for the shite to upgrade itself either before use or running in the background. Google’s Skynet methodology reminds me of the big M aka Micro$oft. But like most service/customer relationships, either party can choose to continue or move on. Is it time for me to choose another browser over Chrome? (more…)

My favorite Google Chrome themes

To date, I’ve witnessed the speed of Google Chrome and it surpasses the other two titans, Firefox and IE, just enough. However, I still won’t be as comfortable using Chrome for security issue like I would with IE, but once Google gets Chrome as secure, then I might convert. Google’s got a bunch of gimmicks, one being themes for the browser. Here are some of my favorites:
