    The URL's your are using are to RAM redirector metafiles.
    Those are small text files with a .ram extension that contain the actual stream URL.

    I suggested that you can use the redirector URL even though I don't recommend that. I did it for your ease of use. The best way to record a stream is by using the stream URL.

    The problem you are having is that sometimes after it redirects, even though it get's the correct stream URL, it does not download using the correct protocol.

    When you start downloading with these RAM redirectors, it will redirect. You will see the the File name extension changes and the Location URL also changes.
    If it does not download, in this case it is trying the wrong protocol. Right click on the download and select Properties, and in this case change the protocol from PNM(HTTP) Protocol to HTTP Protocol. It should then download.

    If you had gone to the site I suggested and did some or more reading you would have known this. You would have also known how to get the stream URL from the redirector URL. In this case with the stream URL, you would not have had to chage the protocol.

    Redirector URL.

    Stream URL.
    http://www.davidphelps.com/real/videos/glory.rm

    All that information and more at the link below. Be prepared to do some reading. Start with the FAQ and then continue on.

    There should be no problem downloading.
    http://www.davidphelps.com/real/videos/glory.rm
    This is just a standard http download.
    Right click on this link and select Save Target As...
    Windows will want to save it as glory.ram but you can change it to glory.rm.
    Then click the Save button.

    That is a http download.
    Windows can download that with a link.
    Any download manager can download that. 100+ available.
    StreamBox VCR is a download manager
