Downloading itmss iTunes programs


I want to download this free program to watch on my TV. When I click on them in Firefox though I get
Quote:
Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (itmss) isn't associated with any program.
This Ubuntu help page says about how to listen to Music, but these are Videos. How do I download them to watch on Raspbmc?

Thanks

Look at the source for the page. I was able to play the first two with
Code:
mplayer http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/LlewTube/~5/ip_zxoje1IU/Llewtubevideo-CoryDoctorowCarpool682.m4v
Code:
mplayer http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/LlewTube/~5/PdsvcQPVHIw/Llewtubevideo-UpdateCarpool202.m4v
Code:
<tr parental-rating="1" rating-podcast="1" kind="movie" rating-riaa="500" role="row" metrics-loc="Track_" preview-album="Robert Llewellyn's CarPool" preview-artist="Robert Llewellyn" video-preview-width="680" preview-title="Cory Doctorow | carpool" preview-duration="1610000" video-preview-url="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/LlewTube/~5/ip_zxoje1IU/Llewtubevideo-CoryDoctorowCarpool682.m4v" adam-id="106720442" row-number="0" video-preview-height="480" class="podcast-episode video">
I'm don't think that the Mods will particularly like like this thread. The video's are listed as free though, but they want you to use itunes to view them.

I'm not trying to avoid the DRM, or infringe any Copyright, do anyone out of any money.

It's purely that I genuinely had no idea how to stream these files. I now do.

Thanks

I understand your sentiment. I feel the same way. If it's free to look at then I'll look at it the way I want to.
But, I've been told that reading a web pages source for an address so that one can use a media player of choice might be considered hacking, because you bypass all of the ads that they want you to look at, and web sites get money for ad views.
So I try to tread lightly when answering such questions.

Apple are welcome to create a version of iTunes and have it uploaded to the repositories like anyone else.
