Strange URL defect or not?
« on: December 30, 2006, 11:13:19 AM »
Firstly thanks for this great application.
Now, I ran into trouble with the following url>

Trailer databse and clip for the Mephisto/Mefisto (1981) oscar movie:
http://videodetectiv...asp?PublishedID=1795

Mephisto trailer clip URL:
mms://38.98.192.5/097135/asf/300/038/001610.asf

Utilizing Streambox VCR and it won't download while other clips from this very site
in similar link format for .asf streams work nicely.. Thanks for any suggestion.

I haven't used Streambox VCR in a while,it might be getting old.

I used Net Transport and got it
http://www.net-xfer.com/

None the less,if your still having problems i uploaded it here,it's under 2 mbytes...

Thank you very much for your kind and prompt help. However, both these links are different from the source online version. They seem to be uncomplete/corrupt, running only 20sec or so. The file is probably broken, that only explains why StreamBox fails completely and your programs can't download it fully..

I'm confused,i used this,the link you provided as the source.

Mephisto trailer clip URL:
mms://38.98.192.5/097135/asf/300/038/001610.asf
....
 and got this
http://absurdvideo.g...pages.com/001610.asf

Converted it
http://absurdvideo.g...ges.com/Mephisto.wmv

I watched it,it's the complete trailer,are you saying it wasn't suppose to be the trailer but a clip from the movie?

No, I'm saying that at least on my setup this is the full trailer version cca 47sec (when watched as live stream online)
mms://38.98.192.5/097135/asf/300/038/001610.asf

while these two are running only 20sec or so and are not complete:
http://absurdvideo.g...pages.com/001610.asf
http://absurdvideo.g...ges.com/Mephisto.wmv

The file is probably somehow compromised, nevermind. Thanks for your help.
