Help with this url please
« on: April 09, 2006, 08:13:51 AM »
Hi

I'm trying to identify the actual location of a streamed media file, but having no luck at all.

Any help anyone could give to find the url that I could input to Streambox VCR would be greatly appreciated.

http://play1.wm.icem...450.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf

Thanks in advance

 A very hard nut to crack,i downloaded the wmv file,(sidenote-if the file is like 1kb open it with notepad,sometimes their is usefull info there) this is what i found inside...
Ref1=http://play1.wm.icemedia.servecast.net/icemedia/secure/protected/ppv/ppv0604081600_450.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf
Ref2=http://213.19.180.79:80/icemedia/secure/protected/ppv/ppv0604081600_450.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf


I tried to punch these into Net Transport which also downloads streams and came up with nothing,it
connects and kicks off.I do see the word "protected" in the url,so the server is probably using some
login feature.Sorry maybe try these apps


SDP-only downloads  Windows Media
http://sdp.ppona.com/

Net Transport-Downloads just about everything except Quictime-shareware
http://www.net-xfer.com/default.htm

Basically a clone of Net Transport but freeware-never used it but i here good things

There has just been a remarkable interview broadcast on BBC News, and I would love to download the video so that I can watch it again - the stream is up, but that's inconvenient for re-viewing, because I want to be able to show it to others and I don't have a wireless-anywhere-in-the-house connection...  I can't figure out the URL from URLSnooper - could anyone lend a hand?  The interview is here: http://news.bbc.co.u...hardtalk/4924244.stm

that's an easy one, url snooper found it as (5.8mb):

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/news/olmedia/n5ctrl/progs/06/hardtalk/nicholson13apr.rm

you really shouldn't have had any trouble getting the url from urlsnooper unless you've got something misconfigured - it should be picked up as soon as you start viewing the video, and it's the only url it should find if you have "multimedia urls" selected as the protocol in url snooper.

Actually, I did get that, but because Firefox couldn't download it, I thought it must be incorrect - so how do I download?

ahh i see your problem.

you need a program that can record real media streams.
search for: Streambox Vcr or Net Transport (those are the 2 i know but there are others as well).  StreamboxVcr is abandonware but works well.

See this post for some good resources links: http://www.donationc.../index.php?topic=7.0
