    saving streaming video.

    I found a free streaming nightwish concert, , and I was wondering if there is any way to save the streaming media so i could watch it later?

    If the format is supported by mplayer, you could try running mplayer with the -dumpstream option and see if that works. I successfully saved a stream in .wmv format this way once.

    i havnt gotten it to work in mplayer yet, but i think if i tried hard enough, i could.

    the format is for windows media player, if that helps?

    Yep, I think it should work then, as long as you have the win32 codecs installed.

    Ok, I just saved a chuck of that concert and it works. I used the gxine plugin to get the address of the video. GXine will start playing the video, and if you click Playlist, it will show the address (an mms:// address).

    Then, use GMMS to download it.
