  1. So I'm trying to download videos from a website that requires a username and password login. It uses a flash-based JWPlayer. When I do an inspection on the network traffic for the page I find a .smil file (XML) that contains what seems to be the information I need to do a direct download, it looks like this:
    Code:
    <smil>
      <head>
        <meta base="rtmps://*********.streamlock.net:1935/thewebsite/_definst_" />
      </head>
      <body>
        <switch>
          <video src="mp4:5/7/5/2/a/***********file" height="1080" system-bitrate="4000000" width="1920" />
          <video src="mp4:5/7/5/2/a/***********file" height="480" system-bitrate="900000" width="852" />
        </switch>
      </body>
    </smil>

    So I tried using rtmpdump to download the video:
    Code:
    ./rtmpdump.exe -v -r "rtmps://********.streamlock.net:1935/thewebsite/_definst_" -y "mp4:5/7/5/2/a/***************file" -f "WIN 30,0,0,134" -W "http://www.thewebsite.com/members/xxxx/jwplayer.flash.swf" -p "http://www.thewebsite.com/members/video/videopage.html" -o test.mp4
    However when I run this, I get the error:
    Code:
    Connecting ...
    INFO: Connected...
    ERROR: Closing connection: NetStream.Play.Failed
    I tried looking up the error, but I couldn't find anything. I've also tried RTMPDumpHelper, RTMPExplorer, GetFLV, TubeDigger, ANT Downloader, IDM, and probably some other ones I can't remember, but no luck so far. I'm trying to avoid just capturing the screen, but I may end up having to do that anyway.
    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
