Problems with PNM

I want to download some older streams from
http://www.br-online.de/alpha/centauri/archiv.shtml
(by the way, a very interesting site, but you`ll need to understand German!)
This files using the pnm:-protocol, for example:
pnm://ravi.br-online.de/ravi/alpha/centauri/v/980927.rm
The stream exists and can be played with an external RealPlayer, but when I try to download it with OE Pro 3.6.1950 SR1, only the length is shown (879 seconds), but no data is transferred!?! Any ideas?

btw.: I`ll tried all the tricks, i.e. substituting pnm: with rtsp: or http: and/or using different ports, but nothing worked

I am sorry, but some newer servers do not allow download of PNM files. There is no solution to this yet. We plan to work on this in future.

Very sad, but that`s what I feared!

Thank you very much, Oleg. It would be awesome, if you could solve this problem in the near future!

Best regards,

I would be really glad myself to have it improved.

Thank you for your kind words!
