Greetings! Welcome to my page! I'm Major MMS
On this page you find tools and a xine plugin down download and watch internet streams using Microsoft's MMS protocol.
Finding MMS:// style urls
To use the software below, you need to dig out mms://-type urls out of web pages. These streams are originally designed to be watched using Microsoft's internet explorer, but using this cool software, this stuff is accessible from Linux!!
Here's how to do it:
The xine plugin
tar xfvz xine-mms-0.0.3.tar.gz cd xine-mms-0.0.3 ./configure make make install
Now enjoy watching Microsoft Media! :-)
The download utility
You have found a stream you'd like to store on your harddrive?
to use it, simply type
mmsclient mms://...don't let yourself confuse by the verbose output, once it's finished, you'll find the stream asf file in the current directory.
This software would never have been possible without the help from http://get.to/sdp
