Hi,

I tried to find out the video URL of https://media.uaf.edu/media/t/1_8hqu0z93 in advanced mode but can’t see any traffic if Protocol Filter is set to “Multimedia URLs”. What’s the problem?

There is the distinct possibility that the site you link to uses a streaming technology not recognized as a 'MultiMedia URL' by the software you use. At least, that would be my first guess.

Protocols have a way of coming up and dying down. Because trying to improve an already existing protocol is more often than not a lot harder than making something new. That and the technical debt that comes with already existing software of any kind, sure makes it an easy decision to make something anew.
