actualy offline explorer doen`t really get the correct file information or something.

Net Transporter(WM stream recorder) get a size of over 300MB and OE just around 60MB

Thank you for letting us know!

I think, this bug is already corrected. I just loaded it with the latest version of Offline Explorer Pro and it worked well. Please update your oe.exe file to the latest version:

Does it work?

I just started downloading this link, waited for about 14 seconds, right-clicked the file that is being downloaded and chose "Finalize". This saved the partially loaded file. Then I clicked Browse and I was able to view the beginning of the video well.

Can you please try that?

OK I tried with the new file 3.7.1964

I downloaded the whole thing.
This time OE gets a filesize of 134.957.712 bytes
I am not able to see any video. I tried WMP, Gabest MPC, VLC(plays sound in a bad quality)
This products gets a filesize of 357.977.736 bytes. This is the only recorder of 4 that records the stream perfectly. I am even able to jump to a specific poition in the videofile. Other recorders did not allow that.

I even tried to recorded 30 seconds, then finalized the whole thing...but same outcome.

I just want to add that all of the players but VCL did not show a picture or gave back any sound. Only the VCL player gave back the audioa part, but with a very bad quality.

Can you please try to load these links but with mmst:// prefix instead of mms:// ? Anyway, in my case both mms:// and mmst:// protocols gave the same files.

Ok i tried with mmst:

That`s what I get after 60 sec, then finalized. Same like mms:
