Video file downloads twice - how to avoid?

Trying to download video. It downloads twice and ends up with a name that I need to rename manually in order to play back. How to automate more with OE??? Thanks

Site: http://www.c-span.org/
Link I`m downloading: javascript:playClip(clip15282)
--- this translates to http://video.c-span.org:8080/ramgen/odrive/15days/wj101403_cobb.rm
--- I`m manually looking up the link because the JavaScript isn`t processed by OE -- I read earlier discussions mentioning that this will be implemented in a later version. Is there any timeframe yet for implementing this type of lookup in OE?

I see the clip being downloaded in OE in two different streams.

an example from the other day:
I downloaded http://video.c-span.org:8080/ramgen/gdrive/15days/e101003_cheney.rm
When I exported the project, I got 3 files:
e101003_cheney.rm
e101003_cheney0.rm@cloakport=8080,554,7070
e101003_cheney.rm@cloakport=8080,554,7070

Thanks.

Hello,

I just fixed loading such links with non-standard extension. If you want the updated version now, please let me know (and specify whether you are using Pro or Enterprise edition).


Regarding Java script links - they can be easily loaded already. I would only recommend you to open the Project Properties dialog | File Filters | Video and select "Load from any site" in the Location box. Click OK button to save changes and you can download the Project again with all links.

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply. The site has been flaky the last couple of days, so I wasn`t able to retest until this morning.

- I can hold off on the updated version for now -- I have to do some other post-processing after the export and can include this part in the code until the next version is released.

- Thanks for the "Load from any site" tip -- I had that selected in one project, but not the other and that change fixed it.

Thanks again!
