    Try first to right click on the video link and select save target/link as. If it wont work try record / save the stream using / saving the streaming media :

    Google, youtube or other flash flv video
    Use http://keepvid.com/ or or http://www.keepv.com/ or http://videodownloader.net to download.
    Or
    Install the Firefox browser http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ then install the
    DownloadHelper https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3006/
    or VideoDownloader plugin https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2390/ or
    Unplug plugin https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2254/ or
    Ook? Video Ook! plugin https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2584/

    If that wont help try Replay Media Catcher, http://applian.com/replay-media-catcher/ , it supports all new flash flv streaming protocols (RTMP, HTTP).


    ASF, WMV, ASX
    WM Recorder


    RM,RAM
    RM Recorder


    MOV, Quicktime
    Quicktime Pro, right click on the movie and select save source.
    or
    http://home.sol.se/michael/qtguide/


    Streaming Recording tools
    CoCSoft Stream Down
    Net Transport
    WM Recorder
    RM Recorder
    HiDownload
    mplayer, command line tool and you use it like mplayer -playlist 'http://www.video.com/video.asf' -dumpstream -dumpfile video.asf
    VLC Media Player, see http://www.videohelp.com/guides.php?guideid=957#957

  2. Thanks. I have always wondered as to how to save a Quicktime movie without Quicktime Pro. The link http://home.sol.se/michael/qtguide/ was quite useful. Thanks for the info.

    Offline Explorer can record streaming Windows and Real video. I like this better than WM & RM recorder. The WM & RM recorder continues recording even if it has to rebuffer the streaming video. This results in gaps in the video. As far as I know Offline Explorer simply pieces the video together as it recieves the data.[/url]

    First post...wheeeee! :P

    UrlSnooper (a google search will bring up several websites for download) is extremely useful for discovering the true URL for streaming media. It acts as a proxy and logs all incoming and outgoing traffic when active. The logs can be a bit daunting to wade through, but basically you want to look for any URL that ends in the non-streaming extension for the media you're trying to download...e.g. .wmx instead of .wmx or .asf instead of .asx, etc. Copy and paste the URL in your favorite streaming downloader.

    Hope this helps...my little contribution back for all the great help I've received on this site!

    For the life of me I cannot figure out how to save to disk the following Real Media file:

    URLSnooper says the file is at:
    rtsp://rm1.tv-tokyo.co.jp:554/real1/minisuka/movie/008b.rm

    I couldn't get RMRecorder 10.2 to record it. I also tried Fresh Download and HiDownload. Maybe it's because I don't have them set up right, but I've tried it on 3 different computer setups and can't get any of them to work.

    Can anyone help?


    On edit: Oh yes, the clip source is at:

    http://rm1.tv-tokyo.co.jp:8080/viewsource/template.html?nuyhtggaysz6wazerfsvwDafil160h...qeAnav68m8l6wf

    Success! I was able to do it using MPlayer (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/dload.html), a command-line "player". I used URLSnooper to get the exact URL of the file(s) I wanted. Then I launched a Command Prompt window and ran MPlayer using this command:

    mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile [outputfilename.rm] -cache 4096 [URL of actual location of file]

    For this one it was:

    mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile 008b.rm -cache 4096 rtsp://rm1.tv-tokyo.co.jp:554/real1/minisuka/movie/008b.rm

    You need to get the codecs at http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/codecs.html and put them in the codecs folder (created when you unpack the app).

    For google I just use the google player, which downloads to a folder and keeps them. ConvertXtoDVD does a pretty good job of converting gvp files to DVD as well.

    For those pesky Flash things like ABC TV shows, I connect the laptops Video and Audio out to my Hauppauge PVR USB2 and record. Then I crop and letterbox in Virtual Dub Mod.

    Is there any way that I can capture multiple videos from a single streaming playlist?
    WM Recorder used to do it automatically but then it suddenly stopped doing it, and I also switched to offline explorer since it doesn't mess the video up if it has to rebuffer. If there are multiple files on a single stream however, it only captures the first one. Help?

    Had a look at CBS, but be damned if I'll install real player on a perfectly good PC just to watch. Sorry.

    It works with WM too. Real Alternative didn't work, however (until I upgraded it. It actually looks a lot better than WMP 9...)

    I got the same results today with SnagIt8. Just a black screen but the audio was intact.

    Then I tried WM Recorder v11 but the interface isn't as slick or as easy to use. That worked fine but only lets you record a limited size file. I got some memory errors whenever I closed it, so I uninstalled it for now.

    Anything else that's free and works?

    Still works for me. Should work with most capture cards.

    Ok, SnagIt's Web site says a blank screen can be a result of your video card's hardware acceleration. Check out this FAQ page to disable hardware acceleration:

    http://techsmith.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/techsmith.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=27

    After I disabled it on my system, I was able to capture video ok. The status window said it was only capturing at 15fps though...I'm still trying to figure out how to change that to 30fps.

    Another FF extension that's worked well enough for me is Ook? Video Ook!. There's a handful of others, including DownloadHelper, but I haven't really tried most of them beyond Amazing Media Browser, KeepVid/Video Downloader, Unplug and Ook? Video Ook!.

  24. I am a sixties music video collector but only have a dial-up connection (sad, I know).
    There are tons of video blogs and sites like YOUTUBE with videos I'd like to convert to DVD.
    If anyone here would like to work with me on these videos, please let me know.

    Here is an an example; I'd love to get this onto a DVD:

    I was just turned on to the Firefox FLV download extension recently and it makes life so much easier! Now I can save files for later or offline viewing. This really comes in handy when there are no wireless net connections around and you are bored out of your mind but have your laptop! Right now I'm just saving the FLV files and using a FLV player but I will probably try one of the FLV converters. Any suggestions on which FLV converter is the best, or suggestions on what you convert to (Divx, Xvid, mpg, etc.)?

    Thanks,
    Sal.
