im not familiar with streamlink, but i expect there should be an option for streamlink to just return the m3u8 url?

with a similar tool called youtube-dl the command would look like this

$ ffmpeg -i "`youtube-dl -f best -g https://twitch.tv/mytwitch`" -c copy -f flv rtmp://

the complete console output would make things easier =]

can you use the same command but instead save to a local file? 

for example, does this work?
