UrlSnooper / Re: what happened to the ascii packet window?
« on: December 03, 2013, 02:37 PM »
an extra option would be fine. thanks! :)

that raw packet realtime view is crazy if you have any kind of download going in the background.
i guess i multitask too much for it to be useful for me.

i mean, when you click on a url that urlsnooper found, in the old pre-february version, you would see that raw packet.

but in newest version, and march version, if the sniffer is running, the raw capture box updates, even when clicking on url results.

now with view raw packet contents feature, its impossible to view raw packets of urls while the sniffer is on.

have to pause or stop sniffing. kind of annoying.

hi i used your software and i like it

but i think you can eliminate the double click to edit properties part. just make all of the options editable. and have a button to 'undo' any mistakes.

thank you.

I take as example a typical, "hard to handle" web page with video content:

Using URL Snooper (even following "compn" suggestions or filling the "Manually Scan a URL" field) you won't get anything useful to feed your player.

Opening the page Source with a browser you'll find some lines in the player script (,streams: [{"url": 'mp4:FL532501.f4v',"duration": 4037}],netConnectionUrl: 'rtmp://') so you should get the working URL (rtmp://

Sadly, this link systematically crashes VLC and even other flv players are unable to handle it.

you created the wrong url.
is the correct url, and works with rtmpdump.

UrlSnooper / Re: Viewing Downloads?

url snooper is just a sniffer. it does not download files.

you can use a download manager or stream recorder to save those files to your harddrive for offline viewing.

the programs to download the streams are ranked/rated here:

UrlSnooper / Re: snooping RTMP content
« on: June 15, 2009, 03:38 PM »
but you said:

works for me in rtmpdump1.6
-boarders paradise (June 15, 2009, 03:22 PM)

'works' meaning that the 'url works' aka its the correct url.
i didnt download the entire video, only a portion of it to test.

sorry for the confusion.

With the --resume switch I can continue the capturing, but only with errors ....
And then it stops again... So I had to manually resume the capturing about 10-15 times, resulting in corrupt stream data, where the download sessions begin and end.
VLCplayer can still play the output file, but with audio/video artefacts every few seconds ....

rtmpdump isnt the best program for this stream. i suggest you try it in Orbit Downloader.

hm ... but for my unexperienced eyes, this seems pretty hard to guess ....

Is there no way to find the string "rtmp://" in the raw dump or could URLsnooper be used to find/assemble this string automatically ?
-boarders paradise (June 15, 2009, 03:01 PM)

there is no way to find that string in the packet dump. most sites dont work like that. some sites use xml playlists which work well with urlsnooper...  it wasnt made for flash streaming (RTMP). you'd have to ask mouser if he plans to do it.

PS: Can you post a link for rtmpdump 1.6 windows binaries ? I found mostly linux stuff and older versions for windows ... :(
-boarders paradise (June 15, 2009, 01:45 PM)

is where i got my copy.

as you can see above, you must put things in the 'ALSO SEARCH FOR' box..
i put an arrow there to show you :)

UrlSnooper / Re: snooping RTMP content
« on: June 15, 2009, 01:24 PM »
urlsnooper can pick up some of the stream by adding rtmp;netstream;playing to the 'also search for' box

you get some results like:
tcUrl... rtmp://

and play... paris_hipotelbellville

put them together:


works for me in rtmpdump1.6

Thanks 4wd! One more question:
How would I know the IP of the server PC?

tell the other computer person to go to:

General Software Discussion / Re: photo duplicate scanner
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:24 PM »
I have been using Image Comparer for a year or so, and I like it a lot, and believe it fulfils ALL of the requested features.

thanks for the tip. the more programs to choose from, the better!

it looks like this program has trouble with an enormous amount of files too.
from the forum:

I have a gallery with a large number of pictures in it (> 60K) and if I try to do a compare within the gallery the remaining time indicator runs out in about an hour into to compare with only 5% of the files compared. If I let the program run all day, the compare slows down (after 20 hrs) until it is taking several minutes to do one compare. I then have to stop the program as it would take a week to finish the job at the rate it was going. Sub folder comparisons (10K) of the same pictures do not have this problem.

my grandmother bought one of these and asked me to hook it up.
it says "Windows and Apple Mac" supported on the package.
yet it fails to say Intel Mac ONLY (until you get to the website).

remember kids, there are two types of processors in apple computers, ppc and x86 (aka intel-mac). always be sure to label or support both properly.

doublekiller is pretty good. double killer pro is faster
visipics is great but slow.

most of the duplicate file programs i've used get choked up when dealing with huge amounts of files (e.g. 40gb folder with millions of images).

most (all?) do not have the ability to save a database of hashes. so you can save time in the future.

many have options to select multiple dup files, but the filters can be confusing or not as specific as you need them to be.

i guess what i'm saying is... we need a 'comparison of duplicate file finders'

filter results by directory
filter results by size/type/name/lackofname (select numberd filenames only)
filter results by drive/folder

selective hashing (scan first and last 10 bytes of a file)
same size sorting for faster scan

side by side compare
delete to recycle bin
move dupes to selected folder
good status/progress indicators

selecting manually was also not working when all three connections were enabled.

i should mention that all three nic were showing up with the same name
"3com Etherlink PCI"

maybe add a number or use the mac addy or some way to differentiate them ?

i installed urlsnooper on a new pc and it was having problems detecting the network adapter.

i have a few NIC's installed , and thought that maybe that was causing the problem.

disabling the non-connected LAN's allowed urlsnooper to find the (only remaining) network and work properly.

hope this helps!

if there is a torrent of the original file, you could join the torrent and select your bad hash file as a partial file. then the torrent program would scan your file and redownload the bad chunks...  (and since you have three files, you would load up all of them , perhapse in three different clients or pc's? ,and then join the torrent, it might be that you have a complete file out of your three downloads)

this also would work on the edonkey p2p network , i think...

also there is a freeware program called 'zidrav'. so if you know of someone else that downloaded the file, you both run zidrav and you send him the checksum and he sends you a 'patch' :)

ZIDRAV is a file corruption detection and repair program. It's designed to provide a way to fix file damage without having to redownload the entire (potentially large) file over a (potentially slow) connection.

-- i bet this program could be advanced with a nice gui and perhapse some internet support/automation, if any programmers want to take a crack at it--

but yeah, interesting problem and good luck!

use, open source, runs on win/linux/mac
for latest win32 binaries...

mplayer -vo gif89a:fps=15:output=test.gif -fixed-vo *.gif
should work for gif files

mplayer mf://*.jpg -vo gif89a:fps=15:output=test.gif
for jpeg, also png should work...

add -vf scale=320:240 or whatever res you want, if you want to change the gif size

mplayer is a media player (and mencoder is a media encoder) which can play all video files .... ever known. also boasts to be the fastest player as well.

My favorite typing game is "Typing of the Dead". It also offers a typing school and drill section. It's not the best program to learn typing, but probably the most entertaining/motivating one... (if you don't mind the graphics and gameplay). http://en.wikipedia....e_Typing_of_the_Dead

agree 100% , this game is great, and i wish i had it when i was learning to type.

first, am i understanding that the "also search for"  options only apply to what has already been filtered by keywords?

no, 'also search for' searches all packets for the words you put in there.
the 'also search for' is useful to find packets without url's in them.

the other box only filters what is in urlsnoopers list already.

UrlSnooper / incomplete urls on
« on: September 15, 2006, 02:47 PM »
urlsnooper gives me the mms url for the video
from the site, but it stops before the full url

any ideas? its an incredibly long url. url snooper seems to stop at that hyphen..

mms://[email protected]&genre=MUSIC%20-%20Pop&

is where url snooper will cut the url, but the packet window shows the whole thing
