I want to download a video which is streaming from mms protocol and has a *.wmv format.
I tried using VLC, Net Transport & many other programs to do it, but it didn't help and didn't work out.
for example i have a video link like this mms://media.iransima.ir/tv3/tv3_13901101_004.wmv
when i click this link in browser, it opens Windows Media Player and starts buffering and playing.
Anyone can help me, how to download this streaming video?
Thanks in Advance

The first thing that you should know is:
The stream located at mms://media.iransima.ir/tv3/........ has a special format. Microsoft defines this format as "playlist". The "playlist" format contains multiple streams which all have the same URL therefore they cannot be downloaded individually. One stream needs to be finished playing (or downloading) in order to access the next. The "playlist" format is rarely used.
2nd, You could download it with NetTransport. Take a look!!
The downloaded file information:
Format : VC-1
Format profile : MP@HL
Codec ID : WMV3
Codec ID/Info : Windows Media Video 9
Codec ID/Hint : WMV3
Description of the codec : Windows Media Video 9 - Professional

VLC was able to download that wmv file.
Media -> Convert/Save
Network tab, enter mms:url, press Convert/Save
Enter file name for local file
Press the little tool button next toe the Settings/Profile.
Select ASF/WMV as the Encapsulation
Go to the Video Codec tab and select Keep Original Video Track
Go to the Audio Codec tab and select Keep Oringal Audio Track
Actually i did try to download with Net Transport, but all those Green logs (as in your image) was Red for me, which mentioned that Net Transport couldn't download the file.
I just ran Net Transport (as administrator) and it did connect to server and downloaded file .
just locate the asx file
and use the SDP Downloader to download.
Just joined the forum!
Thanks to dear Bahman for the solution! just wanted to suggest a little trick in NetTransport to take in account:
when adding new download, click "other settings" at right down corner, go to Streaming tab, under MMS section,set user agent toCode:
check the screenshot to confirm.
Normally, if you dont do this trick, the download process loops at downloading of "Ads" with size of 1,29 MB.
Hope this helps!
Enjoy fast download
What a useful trick!! Thank you!!
