oleg,

i downloaded the "http://media.cbc.ca:8080/ramgen/cbc.ca/national/real/thenational.rm" by offline explorer but the file will not be able to play.

after download i have three [3] folders,

1/ "media.cbc.ca_3A8080" folder
2/ "rtsp@159.33.6.50" folder
3/ "rtsp@159.33.6.50_3A7070" folder

there are three [3] video files in the folder.

file 1 media.cbc.ca_3A8080\ramgen\cbc.ca\national\real\thenational.rm
file 2 rtsp@159.33.6.50\cbc.ca\national\real\thenational.rm@cloakport=8080,554,7070
file 3 rtsp@159.33.6.50_3A7070\cbc.ca\national\real\thenational.rm@cloakport=8080,554,7070

there is also a file "Descr.WD3" in all three folders

i could not play "thenational.rm" and "thenational.rm@cloakport=8080,554,7070"

Sorry, but did you redownload the RealMedia file? You can try to Finalize the file when it loads for a minute or so, to see if the downloaded piece works well. If so, you can then continue to load the rest.

Right-click on the RTSP... line with the file which is downloading and choose Finalize. This will end the file download and save what was loaded.

What if you try to download the following URL:

rtsp://159.33.6.50/cbc.ca/national/real/thenational.rm

?

Oleg,

the file downloaded from this address "rtsp://159.33.6.50/cbc.ca/national/real/thenational.rm" works ok.

but how did you end up with this address, please explain.

thanks,

I simply took the RTSP URL that was trying to download and remove everything after the .rm extension.
