Select media streams
Each media source has at least one stream available. The quvi project refers to this stream as the “default” media stream.
$ quvi dump MEDIA_URL ;# Dump the properties for the default media stream $ quvi get MEDIA_URL ;# Copy the default media stream
Some media sources have additional streams available.
$ quvi dump -S ;# Print the properties of the found media streams $ quvi get -S ;# Print the found media stream IDs $ quvi dump -s STREAM_ID ;# Print the properties of the matching media stream $ quvi get -s STREAM_ID ;# Copy the matched stream to a file
You can also specify a comma-separated list of regex patterns to match against the found media stream IDs.
$ quvi get -s i44_480p,\\w+_480p MEDIA_URL
The option value may also any of the following reserved keywords:
best – Choose the best available quality whenever possible, otherwise go with the default
croak – Exit with an error when the keyword is reached
$ quvi get -s foo,baz,best MEDIA_URL ;# Get best quality if nothing else matched $ quvi get -s foo,baz,croak MEDIA_URL ;# Exit with an error if nothing matched $ quvi get -s foo,baz MEDIA_URL ;# Get default stream if nothing matched
