hi all!

i'm working with a nursing home on a totally unrelated technical project
and got asked if there were a way to record a stream at this URL
and burn it to DVD.

i have very little experience doing this sort of thing. none really. is
there a how-to or good Youtube video somebody can point me to on how to
do this if it's too long to post? i tried looking at some video sites.
and doing some google-fu. but all the advice i've seen is either an ad
for a specific piece of comercial software or has a heavy emphasis on
'free' at the expense of reliability and convenience. it's ok if i need
to purchase software to do this easily. but i don't have the time to
start a science faire project right now. or spend a lot of time on it. i
suppose it would be easier just to say 'no' to the person who asked. but
this is for elderly shut-ins. so i can't just brush the question off.

are there any media geeks out there that can help me with this?

UrlSnooper found a url of

but i couldn't get any further than that, and couldn't figure out how to get Net Transport to record it.

And then i tried some experimenting, combining some other url stuff shown by UrlSnooper, and came up with this, which appears to be a valid rtmp video stream of the live stream:

And NetTransport *WAS* able to download and record that, *HOWEVER* I could not get an audio from the recorded stream of that.. not sure why, maybe someone else can assist with that..

The relevant code is:

Formatted for HTML with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. <!--
  2. By use of this code snippet, I agree to the Brightcove Publisher T and C
  3. found at https://accounts.brightcove.com/en/terms-and-conditions/.
  4. -->
  6. <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script>
  8. <object id="myExperience1721600232001" class="BrightcoveExperience">
  9.  <param name="bgcolor" value="#494949" />
  10.  <param name="width" value="255" />
  11.  <param name="height" value="210" />
  12.  <param name="playerID" value="2112648932001" />
  13.  <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAABhgfpx9k~,oDdvuOi2gc9Jb6SCcsBzNSXoXbJgHyBg" />
  14.  <param name="isVid" value="true" />
  15.  <param name="isUI" value="true" />
  16.  <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" />
  18.  <param name="@videoPlayer" value="1721600232001" />
  20. <!--
  21. This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon
  22. as the line is read by the browser. If you wish to have the player instantiated only after
  23. the rest of the HTML is processed and the page load is complete, remove the line.
  24. -->
  25. <script type="text/javascript">brightcove.createExperiences();</script>
  27. <!-- End of Brightcove Player -->
  28. </div>

So the relevant parts are:


And the IDs there.

The JS is far too long to post here.

I don't have time to go through that now (and I'm not totally sober...), but perhaps this will trigger something that someone else knows.

"Brightcove" is key there.

These things are generally straight forward in tracking down the proper URL and sending the right cookies if they're that sophisticated.
