Hello!

I have been using an add-on to download certain live broadcasted video. It did this by downloading the audio and the video as separate files, that I then put together outside of Firefox. I don't know if this is the right place to ask but since I can't get any further than the first step this time I thought I'd start here.

The add-on no longer works so I thought I'd open the "Inspect Element" page, go to "Network" and leave it open with the live video playing. There were lots of small files loading in, ending in .m4a and .m4v. Too many sort and download manually so I tried right clicking and hit "Save All As Har"

So now I got a .har file of around 100 MB and I wonder if this has those small pieces that I can do something with? Thanks

.har aslo known as http archive format is a file format used by several HTTP session tools to export the captured data. these are basically JSON objects that contains sensitive data from http session tools. i don't think converting those files to .mp4 is possible. instead of using that I recommend to use another video download platform.

refer this if you want to know more about .har: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAR_(file_format)
