I have set up Burp proxy to intercept requests of an Android app. I am able to intercept app API calls except for live video streams. I am not aware of how the video stream is implemented but assuming there should be WebSocket or HTTP requests made to stream video.

Please help me how can I intercept live streaming. My aim is to stream video on a laptop.

    The video is likely streamed via Websocket. Burp treats these differently than regular HTTP requests.

  • also burp didn't handle data streams very well even over http, not sure it's changed now.

  • How do you know it's not over a completely different protocol? May 27, 2020 at 14:46
  • @multithr3at3d not at all sure. How can I find that? May 27, 2020 at 14:52
  • @ShashwatKumar by using tcpdump from the device itself or from a device that sees all of its traffic May 27, 2020 at 15:53
