Help with Net Transport

    I am using the streaming program called NetTransport. I have tried to download radio shows but the downloaded file turns out to be a MS-Dos Application. Is there anyway of either changing it to an audio file or is there anything i should go to in Net Transport to change this.

    The URL adress i am using is mms://204.174.223.100/sportsbyline.com

    Any help would be grateful.

    Open the file you downloaded in notepad.
    Copy and paste the REAL url, hidden inside that file, into Nettransport. Just leave off the last char, that looks like a little box.

    When you say real url do you mean anything that represents an address because i can't see anything.

    In this case, you can't save the audio.

    That's a good one. But not correct.

    The file you downloaded was the audio file, but just had the wrong extension. Rename to change .com to .wma or .asf.

    Record like this to get the correct extension.

    Copy stream URL.
    mms://204.174.223.100/sportsbyline.com
    Net Transport
    New
    Rename > sportsbyline.wma
    Click OK to start recording.
    Click Pause to stop recording.

    I would also recommend GetASFStream for downloading this.
    http://test.s30.xrea.com/getasfstream2109b.exe
    It will actually read the file information from the stream header and name the file correctly from that. It will also automatically index the file for seeking. Net Transport can also index, but it is a manual function that you have to perform after the file is downloaded.

    The most and best information about streaming media recording at the link below. Start with the FAQ.
