    just think with the ASF recorder you could create your own virtual movie collection and with the right media even a real library

    ASFrecorder is great ... when your at work and have a nice FAT bandwith pipe , download webcasts etc, put them on CD then watch them on the way home on the laptop :)

    Plus you dont get the buffering etc either which makes a better watching pleasure


    URL Snooper :
    It finds the urls of hidden streams, solving the problem of capturing media streams. It checks your temp folder, automatically opens files, looks for the proper urls, and collects them into a separate window. It then allows you to drag the url links into Streambox VCR. This is an excellent Streambox VCR "add-on" for finding those media streams that are elusive!

    Note : not compatible with XP :(

    save the stream

    anyone know how actually to save the stream they are showing?because I can't capture it, and I can not find it in my internet temp files? How did you save your stream?
    cheers

    streambox

    I have streambox vcr loaded and have the MIME function under the capture tab enabled. It will not catch the click on the movie start. The url that gives the bandwidth and catalog number for the video will not work as a cut and paste.
    Asf recorder won't record a real media format, and url snoop wont work in XP. So, how are you capturing the stream?
    Need to know, badly!

    real video

    I have streambox, and 2 or 3 tutorials. They all indicate either getting the url, or using the interceptor capture function. I have messed about for a couple of hours trying to find a good url for the movie I rented. I finally used my laptop (win2k) to url snoop it, find a good file name/url, and run steambox on it. No go. I think it movie88 has something new protecting the log in.
    Zman stated that he downloaded a stream. I would like to know how he did it. With streambox, it certainly isn't straight forward.
    I have a retail version of real producer. I may have to load it up and try it. Does anyone else have any ideas?

    I did exactly the same with URL snooper , but it wont work on the movie we just rented ..

    They may have changed something when they saw the News Story on the front page here, as it was very easy the other night ..

    Im looking for more tools at the moment .

    :(

    rm URL

    I have also been trying to get a hold of the .rm URLS. Today I tried it at my office which uses a firewall which partly blocks realone player.

    So when requesting a movie I was hoping to get the URL as error message. So far so good.

    I tried to get the URLS of two different movies to compare them:

    Species II: http://210.59.224.72/~movie3~/rbHmm37CqwRIYmcm300.rm
    and free movie
    http://210.59.224.72/~movie3~/rbHmm37CqwRIYmcm300.rm

    (The "300" in the URL stands for the chosen bandwith - I checked that with trying to download a 100K streaming movie)

    Well as you can see the are both the same :( It looks like some sort of encryption. I have not yet tried to download them with streambox, but I suspect that it will not work and that the URL will be the same one as ROBOWANG found :(

    There must be some authentication scheme in place so I think you will only be able to download the movie URL when your are logged in to the site/ To that extend the URL only does not seem hopefull......

    I'm a bit dry on Idears now and good not find any info on the web Someone else maybe?
