Written by M. Zinoune (Zinovsky) @

If you are a fun of Aljazeera News channel, this is a nice command that allow you to watch Al Jazeera live in your Linux desktop. I tested the command and is working like a charm.


First check if you have rtmpdump installed, if not install it using the command :

sudo apt-get install rtmpdump

Now to start watching Aljazeera live, open terminal and enter the following command

$ rtmpdump -v -r rtmp:// -y "aljazeera_en_veryhigh" -a "aljazeeraflashlive-live" -o -| mplayer -
