    downloading a .rm file to hard disk

    How do you locally download an .rm file? The only thing I know how to do is to right click on the link and go to "Save Target As...", but then you get a .ram file. Could someone give me an example, say using the page http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/pr...business.shtml and the link marked "Listen to Global Business" near the top of the page?


    Thanks.
    Mark

    That's part of the most basic protection mechanism: to thwart attempts at ripping off media files :D

    That link is not accessible - so the file does not exist NOW. Where you may have got it from and whether it ever existed, only you and the Almighty know :D

    However you might be interested in knowing that the directory where that file is purported as being located (i.e http://www.kicc.org.uk/smil/ ) requires special persmission to access which neither of us has.

    So this is one more layer of protection against unauthorized means of obtaining a file. If you go in through the proper path, then you may be able to stream the audio (assuming it actually exists and you don't have an old link which is now dead). All other ways will block you.

    So if you are able to stream the audio going through the proper path on that web site, then you can use dMC Auxiliary Input to capture the audio to wav or another format as per http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=5362

    Disaster? I call hurricane Frances a disaster. Inability to download a file to which you probably have no right does not qualify as a disaster :(

    When you want to download a file from a cgi script, it doesn't work. Explorer saves a meta file for the url.

    That's because this is what is being served, not because it's a cgi script.
    Open the meta file using Notepad and take the actual url from there, copy it and paste it into the browser's address bar and see if you can access it that way. Paste it here in a forum post and then right click on it as you are previewing the post, and save as whatever it should be.

    If it comes from a streaming server you'll never get it though.

    Re: downloading a .rm file to hard disk

    I record streaming media all the time,i don't know about the states,but after some googling,i guess it is illegal in Finland, search through the comments.How on earth they could find out,i.e. tell
    the difference from their server logs wether it's going to media player or downloader is beyond me.

    Personally,i use url snooper to find the actuall links and Net Transport to download,if you look around you can find the last freeware version.

    I also use HiDownload to download hard to get flash files and .mov files.

    If sometime your downloader kicks out a small .rm .ram or .wax file open that
    file up with a text editor and the stream link should be inside.

    And more info
