I wonder if it's possible to download videos with wget. I know there some applications and websites to download from periscope, but can I download replay videos from periscope with wget, using only command line?


Yes, it is completely possible to download videos using wget command. All you need to do is type the video url as the parameter for wget:

wget http://website.com/videos.mp4


To download replay videos from Periscope, one will need youtube-dl, a tool to download videos from YouTube and few more sites, including Periscope.tv which supported by this tool.

To install youtube-dl, run following command:

sudo wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

Then, copy your desired replay videos link, for example I'll use random videos:

youtube-dl -v https://www.periscope.tv/w/1OyKAoBnBmDJb
