Downloading from a link

Recommended Posts

Okay so I have this : mms://202.231.221.5/ve/v/v-02388.wmv

It leads to a video, but no matter how i try to click on it or access it, it always prompts me to open windows media player instead of opening the download box.

So, is there any program I can open it with? Or, can I take the physical file from windows media player somehow? Or will i have to do some digging in the temp folder? (its live streaming)

Have you tried changing mms to http? The mms:// protocol will always open the file in Windows Media Player. Depending on your browser settings if you use http it may come up with a download dialog, or it could load and play in your browser.

Alternatively you could use the http version and create an html file on your desktop with a simple link to the file so that you can download it.

Yes, the size of the file indicates to me that the file is pointing to itself, as there is no video information contained in it. After downloading, I could successfully open the file using VLC, but it just points to the mms link.

Take your original mms link and open it in vlc player. To open the mms link click "file", then "open file", you will see four tabs. Click on the network tab and then select http/mms option and copy your mms link inside the box. Below you see "advanced options". Select the Stream save option and click on settings. For output, click on "file" Then click "browse" on the right side and save your file anywhere and name it. On the right hand side of "browse" select the option of "dump raw input" and you are set. Just play the file. It might be the case that when you are playing the file you just see the video cursor bar moving but no audio or video, but don't worry about it. After the video is done playing you should have the saved streamed file fully downloaded. Just change your file extension to .wmv.
