i tried to download the following mms file:

mms://winmedia.freeclip.aebn.net/FreeClip_v2/free_amateur_0063-225.wmv

and all i got was about 5 million 4kb garbage files, and a 4kb wmv file that doesnt play... any suggestions?

I tried to open the URL with MS Media Player, but it looks like the URL is invalid. This is why Offline Explorer can`t load it either. It only loads so-called Refernce files that point to different locations on the same server, but they all do not work.

This is a OEP problem because that is a valid URL and is recordable with other software.

GetASFStream, Net Transport, SDP Multimedia, StreamBox VCR, Stream Down, WM Recorder, Web Stream Recorder could download it using MMS(HTTP) Protocol.

Net Transport, Stream Down, WM Recorder could also download it with RTSP Protocol.

HiDownload could only download it with RTSP Protocol.

OEP could not download it with any protocol.

Thank you! Offline Explorer Pro incorrectly detected the MMS protocol and switched to HTTP. I juxt fixed the problem.
