I want to see the content of a .m3u8 file without downloading it. I remember reading this trick somewhere, but I can't remember exactly where.
What I do remember, is that it involves adding special keywords at the beginning of the URL (eg. the file is located at
http://example.com/yyy.m3u8 so the link you paste into address bar is
something-http://example.com/yyy.m3u8). After this the file content shows in browser window.
This doesn't change the MIME or content type, it just does this temporarily. I can't find the trick anywhere because all the tutorials I can find are about teaching you how to change this in the Firefox file type option, or changing the MIME type files in your profiles folder.
