rtsp is a protocol (real time streaming protocol) and not a filetype, so you can't download it.
mms is what exactly? I found some mms-files on google, but didn't find out after a quick look at it what it should be.
But if it is that file with ending .mms, what problem do you have downloading it?

And btw, what has this question to do with linux software?

hi,

Not sure about mms but i too am looking for something to download files using the rtsp protocol.

In windows HiDownload or FlashGet will download real audio/video streams and save them to disk.

I use this to download listen again shows from radio1 to listen to at work (chris moyles!!)

I am trying to move over to linux but have not yet found a download manager that supports the rtsp protocol, only http and ftp.

any help please?

p.s i'm fairly new to linux.. i can just about compile things as long as it doesn't involve the kernel or too many libraries i dont have!

thanks
james.

personally i thought mms and rtsp, where, as their name states, streaming protocols, so "downloading" doesn't really make sense. if you wish to capture a stream from one of these sources, i'd suggest using mplayer compiled with the LIVE.COM codecs.

mplayer mms://wm4.abacast.com/talksport -dumpaudio -dumpfile talksport.mms

thanks, i'll give that a go!

shame there doesn't seem to be a download manager available supporting rtsp like there is in windows. HiDownload does multi-part downloads so a 3hr show only takes about 20mins to 'download', whereas with mplayer i assume it will take as long as it takes to play to save to disk!!

oh well, once i'm a little more familiar with linux it'll be a nice project to try and code a plug-in for something or other to do the job!

cheers,
james.

No, it won't. MPlayer does not actually play the stream when you use -dumpstream, therefore timing is irrelevant (unless the stream is live, in which case nothing short of a time machine will get the stream faster). This is what I use to get mpegs from dvds (mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream). It takes about 15 minutes to copy an entire dvd.

Check out this website and download mmsclient. I haven't tried this utility yet, but it seems to be quite good.

mplayer works for rtsp most of the time. What needs to be done is support for rtsp password protected .rm streams, like realplayer has.

I was wanting to do the same thing on Debian and found I could

Code:
aptitude install mimms
which does exactly that... :-)

once you've installed it it's as simple as:

Code:
mimms mms://server.to.download.from/path/file.wma
