Author Topic: Problem with Peculiar Stream (Tried View-Source, URL Snoop)  (Read 7614 times)

I am trying to record the audio stream embedded at this site "www.divaradio.com/live.htm".
I have used the view-source method to find the proper Stream URL from the site's source code. The stream URL that I found is:
83.235.170.148:8085/

With that URL I have tried downloading it via NetTransport but it did not work. Here is the log from NetTransport:
-Connecting to 83.235.170.148:8085
-Connected
-GET / 1
-Host: 83.235.170.148:8085
-Accept: */*
-User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.00; Windows 98)
-Connection: Keep-Alive
-0 400 Bad Request
-Server: Rex/9.0.0.2980
-Cache-Control: no-cache
-Pragma: no-cache
-Pragma: client-id=963225250
-Httpserver error

I have also tried using the URL Snooper to obtain the URL but I have not had any success. I first launched the URL Snooper program and clicking on 'Sniff Network' and then I hit the play button on the embedded media player.
Is this the correct way to obtain the URL from URL Snooper? How can I record this peculiar audio stream?

hi dj,

i remember your post from streaming media recording forum
which is still the best place to get help finding particular streams, since we have some real experts there
who know this stuff much better than me.
i tried sniffing for the url like you, snooper gave me that sameaddress you have, it's not very useful is it..
i think we will probably have to wait for one of those streamin media experts on the other forum to help us figure it out,
it's some kind of windows media player streaming trick. if your thread on that forum starts to move off page ill bump it back up until we find the solution.

i was actually thinking of moving the forums from there to here so its all in one place.. still considering..

yes; just make sure you have selected the right network adapter in the options; you should see a count of packets being scanned on the bottom left.  in this case there are no multimedia urls so you won't see any in the results list until you change the Protocol Filter to something like "show all" in which case you get some links similar to the one you posted.

if you never see any packets being counted as it scans, it means you haven't selected the right network adapter, or that possibly you are on dialup and need to do the special workaound to get url snooper to work with dial-up.

i just tried http://www.wmrecorder.com
and it finds the exact same url that we found
BUT
it IS able to record it!!

unforunately wm recorder is not free, but
the fact that it can record it probably means that another free tool,
and maybe do a better job.

but i just verified that wm recorder can record it.
