You are reading the documentation for the in-development version of Streamlink.
You can use the
--http-proxy option to change the proxy server
that Streamlink will use for HTTP and HTTPS requests.
the proxy for all HTTP and HTTPS requests, including WebSocket connections.
If separate proxies for each protocol are required, they can be set using environment variables - see the Requests Proxies Documentation.
Both HTTP and SOCKS proxies are supported, as well as authentication in each of them.
When using a SOCKS proxy, the
socks5 schemes mean that DNS lookups are done
locally, rather than on the proxy server. To have the proxy server perform the DNS lookups, the
socks5h schemes should be used instead.
$ streamlink --http-proxy "http://address:port" $ streamlink --http-proxy "https://address:port" $ streamlink --http-proxy "socks4a://address:port" $ streamlink --http-proxy "socks5h://address:port"
