Features
--------

Livestreamer is built upon a plugin system which allows support for new services
to be easily added.

Currently most of the big streaming services are supported, e.g.
`Dailymotion <http://dailymotion.com/live/>`_,
`Livestream <http://livestream.com>`_,
`Justin.tv <http://justin.tv>`_,
`Twitch <http://twitch.tv/>`_,
`UStream <http://ustream.tv>`_ and
`YouTube Live <http://youtube.com/live/>`_.

Installing
----------

The latest stable version is available to install using `pip <http://www.pip-installer.org/>`_:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ pip install livestreamer

or installing from a source directory:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python setup.py install

`The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python <http://docs.python-guide.org/>`_ has guides
helping you install Python + pip on the most common operating systems.


Usage
-----

The default behaviour of Livestreamer is to transport a stream to your player
software (default is VLC).
