This is the current streaming url: https://p-events-delivery.akamaized.net/17oiubaewrvouhboiuba...

It works fine with mpv [1] and probably vlc. If it breaks, you can check the payload of the `*/js_files/event/url.json` request and point your media player to that.

[1] https://mpv.io/

On Mac, QuickTime Player also works for that URL. VLC does work, but it's really wonky and stutters every 10 seconds.

Hmm, vlc not working here. What server is the url.json file hosted on?

Currently, the full url is https://p-events-delivery.akamaized.net/17oiubaewrvouhboiuba...

Just open devtools on https://www.apple.com/apple-events/september-2017/ and filter for `url.json`.

Well, guess this doesn't work on Chrome.

Well, looks like my browser just can not do HLS. If only they made JavaScript libraries to do that.

Does not work in IE, Firefox, or Chrome. Fuck you, too, Apple.

It works on Edge, on Windows 10.
