  1. I recommend “Video Web”. The last update allows you to download m3u8 (streaming file), mp4, mkv, flv, m4v… and all popular video formats. It can also convert any video file (like movpkg, m3u8, ts) to mp4 and save to camera roll or watch on a TV with Chromecast.

  2. I highly recommend Allavsoft to downlod M3U8 files to MP4, AVI, MKV, FLV, MOV and more other popular video formats.
