VLC Media Player
If you have a mms-link just copy it or open the video link your webbrowser and right click in the windows media window and select Properties and copy the location URL.
Select File->Open Network Stream
Select HTTP/HTTPS/FTP/MMS and paste the URL/Link
Select Stream/Save under Advanced Options and click on Settings
Select Outputs and Play locally and File
Select ASF as Encapsulationd Method
OK and VLC should start play and also capture the video to the file.
You can now play the ASF file with WMP or convert it to other formats using for example SUPER, VirtualdubMPEG2 or Windows Movie Maker.

Nice one, Baldrick
In most cases you can download the actual streamed RM or ASF file using NetTransport by loading either the initial link file or direct link gotten from it, with multiple connections to the host and resuming paused downloads. If the webcast is live, you can also record it to file (real-time in this case).
P.S. Sorry, slightly out of topic.
Is there a way to start stream capture when needed only? What I mean is, say I'm watching a streaming video using WMP and then I want to capture only section of the stream while watching and stop capture whenever I want.... looks like this method will capture the whole stream and then I have to edit.....
Thanks a ton
For me method works with Firefox 188.8.131.52, not with my IE 6
I followed your instructions to capture this clip:
When I tried to open the ASF file in Windows Media Player it says:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.
The clip uses Windows Media Video 9 and Windows Media Audio 9.1 as codecs. I am using Windows Media Player 11 and do not have any problems to play the file insert its URL into "Open URL". I also have successfully downloaded the wmv-file replacing "http" by mms" in the files URL using SDP Multimedia as suggested by Baldrick as an alternative to VLC as I somehow was not able to download the file using vlc.

Wordpad you will find the following URL for the wmv-video-file itself which then
you can download.
I'm trying to download this file:
http://wms.stream.aol.com/turner/gl/hbo/sopranos/season6/sopranos_ep_86_spoiler_wm_384.wmv using SDP.
It get's to 99% and then it stops. Do you have any suggestions?
I tried this method which the gent at the top suggested but i'm only geting audio after i've finished recording the stream
Anyone help would be much greatly apreicated

Thanks Baldrick for the great guidance, including the highlighted screen captures.
- What does "Dump Raw Input" next to "file" do?
- In the "Encapsulation Method" (e.g. file-type), what would be the best to save in? What are the advantages/disadvantages? There's many to choose from - MPEG TS, MPEG PS, MPEG 1, Ogg, ASF, MP4, MOV, WAV, Raw. I assume that WAV would be sound only w/o video.
- What about Transcoding Options here? It would be cool if subtitles could also be recorded.
- I'm unfamiliar with these other video conversion software -- SUPER, VirtualdubMPEG2 & Windows Movie Maker. Which do you recommend? Are any Freeware? What about video dubbing software? I'm currently recording with VideoLAN VLC and would like to cut out the first 5 minutes or so. It's too bad that VideoLAN VLC can't do it itself -- it seems to be the best video playing software out there and can do so many other things well.
BTW, where'd you get that great Avatar? I know a guy who makes a face like that, looks almost exactly like him, glasses and all!
I'm trying to use this method to download/save this file & getting errors
Error: Unable to open 'ASF http://lang.stanford.edu/courses/ee380/080604/080604-ee380-300.wmv'
It's listed in WMP's properties as:
*Windows Media Audio 9.1
20 kbps, 22 kHz, mono (A/V) 1-pass CBR
*Windows Media Video 9
*Under "Media Usage Rights" in the WMP properties it says "This file is not protected."
I saved it & opened it with notepad and tried http://lang.stanford.edu/courses/ee380/080604/080604-ee380-300.wmv
then i saved the http://lang.stanford.edu/courses/ee380/080604/080604-ee380-300.wmv & looked at it in notepad:
so i tried http://lang.stanford.edu/courses/ee380/080604/080604-ee380-300.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf
[Reference] Ref1=http://lang.stanford.edu/courses/ee380/080604/080604-ee380-300.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf Ref2=http://192.168.10.101:80/courses/ee380/080604/080604-ee380-300.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf
none of them seem to work.
Does anybody know the proper method to save this file?
I also encounter this problem. However, I found a method to get the asf file correctly.
Method : you can use copy and paste function on the asf file during encoding the streaming video for the last five seconds. You will get the playable asf file as a copy of the orginal file.
I've installed the latest VLC version 0.9.9 and I've been trying to rip mms live stream with it and have stumbled into this thread that deals with an older version of VLC, but doesn't inform which one - I'm guessing it's the 0.8.5, from Dec/06?
I don't mind installing an older version of this app, as long as it captures/indexes/plays mms live stream and does it well. It's been impossible and complicated with the latest version, and the dialog windows are different from the ones posted here. Please help.
Thx - Denise
Have tried VLC and various other software, with no luck.
Anyone who knows how to download this stream?

That might be rmtp-e files and they can't be downloaded. You should simply use a screen capturing software, it captures the videos streaming right over. Well, the one I'm using for some time is Tunebite, this new version can capture those kind of formats and also converts the videos to any formats you need.
