they have revamped the site after I posted...

Earlier they had two players, one which was regularly stopping or clipping the
wrong video section etc with the stream url:

and the other working much better had the stream url:

But now as you say both players refer to the same stream which I *can* extract.

This 2:nd URL I could only find by using Firefox in F12 mode when playing, so it
was completely manual. Not good when it changes often..

I wanted a way to script the extraction of the m3u8 URL and none I testsd
worked, they always returned the same url for the first player.

The extraction is needed because the number in the URL changes from time to time
breaking automation. But I *can* read it in the script.

But since the other stream now has disappeared there is not much more to do...
