    1. You can play m3u8 link directly in most players (mplayer, smplayer, vlc, wmp), or with browser plugins like vlc-plugin, or download it with ffmpeg, etc. So, as stated in description, this is direct link to the video, not to video file.
    2. m3u8 is not a location of some single file. It is playlist. In most cases it contains list of links to small pieces of video.

    You can do this with ffmpeg.
    E.g.
    $ ffmpeg -i [url to m3u8] -c copy [local file name]
