This Site.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/index.shtml

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/ace/wrapper.smi

Should download both the .rp and .rt files.

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/ace/acepics.rp
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/ace/acetext.rt

Offline Explorer Pro will online download the .rp file.

Same Site. the .smi and .rp files download but the .rt file doesn`t.

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/alpha/wrapper.smi
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/alpha/pics.rp
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/alpha/text.rt

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/antimony/wrapper.smi
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/antimony/pics.rp

I just downloaded these URLs and .rt files were loaded. Please check File Filters in the Project Properties to see if they are enabled for download.

I am still not getting the .rt file please explain more.
Properties. All file filters are checked.
In each file filter. Load all file types listed below is selected and all file types are checked. Load all file sizes is selected.

If I put in the URL.
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/alpha/text.rt
It will download the .rt file
But if you start with the URL.
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk:554/cult/doctorwho/death/databank/alpha/wrapper.smi
It should download the .smi file and see that it need to download a .rp and a .rt file to go along with that. It`s not doing that. It just loads the .rp file
veblin 03/29/2006 07:00 am
When OEP analyzes .smi files it should find the .ra, .rp, .rm, .rt files that go with the .smi file. It works for .ra, .rp, .rm. It doesn`t work for .rt. The only way I can get the .rt file is to look at the .smi file text and then manually download the .rt file.

I tested all links that you gave me. They all work well and all files are loaded automatically.

Please do the following - select the Project which doesn`t load .rt files, click Copy button, then run Notepad, paste the Project there, save it to some text file and sent that file to us to:
support@metaproducts.com

I will see what`s wrong that.

Thank you.

Was able to get the .rt and .rp streans in the link specified above by veblion.

But I cannot get the .rt streams from this link - http://www.abc.net.au/broadbandnews/ram/news.ram

(this is a dynamic link to a .smil file)

Also, there is an image file referred to in the .smil file, it is ....head.gif?bitrate=500 it is downloaded OK, but the bitrate=500 is included in the file name extension so the local image file does not have a recognized file extension. (the data are there ..just edit the file name to remove the bitrate=...)

I have found and fixed another problem there - Menu.rt file was requested from a wrong directory. Please download the updated oe.exe file here:
http://www.metaproducts.com/download/betas/oep943.zip

Regarding GIF filename - simply try to Export the Project (File | Export) and use Standard extensions there.
