LiveStream API: password protected channel tricks

Keywords: MissingPasswordTokenError, Please provide a password token.

This is how you specify password token if you need to access some information about password protected channel on LiveStream.

Let’s say you need to have all details about a video.
This is what you can call for a public video:
api.new.livestream.com/accounts/7777777/events/4444444/videos/111111111/

And this is how you get video details for a password protected channel:
api.new.livestream.com/accounts/7777777/events/4444444:pt:e921991xxxx51e511fa5032f83c74dac4bbb-1452462600000/videos/111111111/

To get this pt:… part you can check your browser requests while playing this video in browser.

The only thing is: videos in password protected channels are streamed.
This means that it is more difficult to download them (if possible at all — I did not went there).
Whereas public videos usually have mp4 links for direct download.
