How to download a rtmp video stream on Linux?

You can use mplayer to dump the rtmp stream like:

mplayer -dumpstream rtmp://example.com/path/to/stream.mp4

It will generate ./stream.dump and you can rename it to the file with the extension you need like stream.mp4.

The rtmp link usually can be found from the HTML or JavaScript source code of the webpage if you just have a web url.
