i just tried
and it finds the exact same url that we found
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.

some nice music on there by the way;
if you find a way to record it please post and share :)

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..

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?

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.

Living Room / New charter members - please read in

By default after one registers at this forum, you will see when you post and in your profile you are marked as a "visitor."

When i get notified of a new signup at the forum i check forum profile against people who have donated, and i move your
status to "Charter Member" if it matches an email i have on file.

If you find that you are still maked as a "visitor" after a day, it probably means i missed it or you used a different email; just send me an email on personal message through the forum, and i'll make sure to correct it so that you are properly identified as a charter membet.

ProcessTamer / Re: ideas for process tamer

that problem is probably due to the fact the process tamer is single threaded and goes to sleep and only wakes up once per second to check on things and process clicks.  so if you double click you have to wait a second for it to "take."  ill bet that is the issue, rather than having to click it multiple times - just seems that way because their is a delay it in responding.

i'll fix this in the next release - which should be available next week.

« on: March 17, 2005, 07:24 PM »
now that is an interesting idea..
as you say, i've heard of programs that jump the mouse cursor to the box, but not ones that do what you say, which does seem like it might be kinda cool and less disorienting.

i do already have code to efficiently enumerate windows written in process tamer,
maybe i will do some more investigating into possible window operations that might be useful, in addition to moving certain dialogs to the position under the mouse.  i'm not sure it would be worth the effort just for that, but maybe if there were a bunch of things, like auto pushing certain buttons, that altogether it would be worth doing..
the only reservation i have is that it seems like the best solution would be to have one of these existing programs that already do much of this to add this one feature, rather than me writing a whole new thing.  but it is intriguing..
i will def. give some thoughts to this since process tamer is already a good skeleton for such things.

i just bumped you to a charter member so you may not have had permission to set it before then.
just click on your name to show some info about your nick,
then click on Forum Profile Information from left hand bar,
then you should get a list of avatars or be able to upload your own.

our idea is when we pick a category, we will first try to find the very best software in that category.
if that program is a free or open source program, then we will just review that program, and of course note that it is the best and is free.

however if the best program in a category is shareware, then we will often try to also find the next best program that is free or open source, and present awards to both, and describe clearly what we liked about each.

this way, those who prefer open source or free software, or think that the commercial app does not justify its price will still have a clear choice about best free program.

i should have been clearer-

the only thing i was talking about was making it possible for visitors to the web site to be able to browse the help files online *without* ever installing the program.  so it would just be a way for people to glance through the manual without having to actually install the program.
for people who already have it installed it would be of no value, you'd always have the normal help files in the program when you install it.

don't forget we will post a new software review/award every saturday.

actually this week we plan to do our first of hopefully many combo awards, where we will present two award, one for best app overall, and one for best open source / free alternative.

a very very warm welcome to all of you who found us through bob's fantastic ShellCity.Net site or Infopackets newsletter.

shell city has been one of my fav sites listing software for a long time - bob always finds new cool utilities that you never hear about anywhere else, and his archive is a treasure trove.

welcome welcome, make yourself at home.

and for our visitors here who don't know about the shell city site, or bob's infopackets newsletter, what are you waiting for?! start clicking!

great to hear that - i've been discussing some possible new features with other new members..
if anyone has some feature requests please post!
i may be able to do an update next week.

two features in consideration for adding are optional reading of windows' internal list of programs run and adding them to history for faster search and easier location of recently run programs outside of f&r, and the ability to search for folders.

i'm open to any other feature requests!

Just a link to the old mircryption forum on sourceforge:


further discussions about mircryption should take place here.

of course mircryption is still open source and always will be - it's just that as wonderful as sourceforge is, the forums their are truely the worlds worst  ;)

Living Room / Re: BIO
« on: March 17, 2005, 01:00 AM »
i was thinking about putting up a little bio.
i'm one of those people who are kind of private but i realize people like to know who they are dealing with; we put a real snail mail address up on the contact page for people who want a real person to contact about registering, but it might be helpful if i put up some info about myself so people can feel like they are interacting with a real human being :)

i was actually thinking about making a blog for developer's with their software here (so far i'm the only author here but i think we will have more once i figure out the best way to do it).  might be interesting for people to hear about whether this approach is going to work or not..

i tried in the past offering my software and just making a passing reference to donations and no one ever donates, so i'm trying to do a more pro-active approach this time, while still keeping with the core idea that the software remain free for all, but just trying to offer some incentives for donating, and making it more of a community thing.

i have to admit i've not explored the icon extractors - i've been meaning too but havent yet;
maybe something to investigate and then review..

i just found some random ones:
Icon Scanner -
Icon Catcher - http://www.helexis.c...products/find_icons/

i'm sure there must be some good free ones too..
seems to me one feature that would be nice would be dupe checking.

I'm wondering how valuable people think it would be to make the help files for my programs browsable online?

it's a good idea but its been done a lot; there are tons of apps that do this and do it well :)

  tried blue but it seemed too close to table borders.

ProcessTamer / Re: ideas for process tamer
« on: March 15, 2005, 11:26 AM »
im definitely going to move to a more full config file instead of the applicationovverides file;
the config file will allow settings parameters like high and low thresholds cpu usage triggering.

and i will add gui config file.

would a gui config file do away with the need to use wildcards?
though you do have that nice wildcard library you wrote i could use for that :)
i should also probably make the filename matching case insensitive.

switching rulesets is def. something im considering;
it would involve some extra work, but it would allow some extra functionality that i used to have in another program i made,
such that if i added ability to specify processes to start and stop with a rule set,
then you could use a rule set to start up or shut down a whole set of processes.

ie you could select from tray to start your web server config, and it would launch (if not already running) your web server and helper tools, and set up your cpu thresholds, etc.  then you could switch "off" that ruleset and it would shut down those programs.

almost sounds like a different program though..
