Saving Streaming Windows Media

leave a comment »

Many times (or always?) the videos (especially wmv) streaming over internet are not downloadable as Windows Media Player disables the save menu. Windows Media files are usually served through an .asx metafile. ASX is a simple XML format which stores the path to media file(s) to play. e.g.

<ASX version="3.0">
        <ref href="mms://*/ibmpdc/pdc/open

Now, the media files are served over mms protocol, which cannot be saved directly. Here comes the saviour FlashGet. Just put this mms url in FlashGet’s ‘URL’ field and save the file. Done!
