    Hi,

    I am new to this software. I wonder if anyone can help me with this. I have successfully download rm video steam from the KCRW radio website, however, for their audio steam, I can't. I wonder why. One thing I notice is that the URL link and file type are somewhat different... it's something like ram_wrap.cgi.ram. Is that something to do with cgi script?? It would be really appreicated if someone can give a clue. The link I wanted to download is:

    http://www.kcrw.com/cgi-bin/smil_wrap.cgi?/mb/mb050331Beck

    Thank you.
    Ben

    Thanks a whole lot. It works.

    Just curious. Is there some typical tricks I can do to look for the real URL for this kind of link? I did read your other threat about URL Snooper and viewing source code... would the URL Snooper see the real URL?

    The URL you gave is the redirector.

    You can download the redirector and open it with a text editor to see the source code and stream URL.
    You can use several different methods to just directly on-line view the source code and stream URL.
    You can use a URL Snooper or packet sniffer to get the stream URL.

    Thanks for starting this thread! It is very informative, and KCRW morning becomes eclectic rocks.

    I still haven't been able to figure out how to view the stream info. when i save the cgi-bin link, all i get in that file is the same http address (i.e. http://www.kcrw.com/cgi-bin/smil_wrap.cgi?/mb/mb050331Beck). how/what do i need to do so that i can actually see the stream code?

    thanks!

    For this link: http://www.kcrw.com/cgi-bin/smil_wrap.cgi?/mb/mb050331Beck

    you can right-mouse-click and press "save link as" onto your desktop, and then open it with a word editor (WordPad or something like that), you will be able to see the true URL link which is near the bottom:
    rtsp://go.rbn.com/livecon/kcrw/g2demand//mb/mb050331Beck.rm

    Anyway, I have been using the shortcut method for the other kcrw show I wanted to download, it is to use the link listed above and just change the file name. For instance, another archive show I found of Beck featuring the Flaming Lips on Dec 2002:
    rtsp://go.rbn.com/livecon/kcrw/g2demand//mb/mb021224Beck_and_The_Flaming.rm

    Try that first.

    P.S.: I am still trying to find a more complete method to look at those URL link, especially flash and javascript webpages. Do share if you find out anything.
