what agent are you using?MattPaintballer said:I'm using a PC with Firefox. When I go to the streaming media I only get a .asx not the .mov. Yes I am using the User Agent Switcher.
Usually I just replace it with the standard address format. Change it to http://fedagent said:just wanna say thanks for providing this guide.
however i have encountered a one problem.
with some of AOL's videos the link starts with "rtsp". with these videos i am not able to convert, neither am i able to even watch them. any ideas on how to fix this?
What video is it? I'll try to download it.fedagent said:hmmm. that didnt work man. i changed it to http and was able to download the file but when i double clicked the .mov file an error came up saying that it was not a movie file.
any other ideas????
You're telling people it's a waste of time to pull videos off AOL, but your alternative doesn't seem to be working out. All i get is WMP opening up and streaming the video?Sexy350zstud03 said:copy the .asx file (everything in quotes not the quotes) and then download it thats all. It will bring up like 3 quick 2 second downloads for some reason and then the fourth will be the download
Someone mentioned pcplanets in this thread but left very little detail as to how to download.fedagent said:hey JMG, theres a few but just to give you an example....beyonce - crazy in love
also are there any other sites other than AOL where we can take videos. i am only aware of yahoo music but this method of taking the videos doesnt work
okay i figured it out... takes kinda long. I don't know how the original poster of the pcplanets did it, but for some reason his explanation didn't work for me. Here's how I figured to do it, but I hope there is an easier way.lerkaile said:Someone mentioned pcplanets in this thread but left very little detail as to how to download.
They've got good quality videos (i've yet to compare with AOL's), but there's no proper way to download the stream. All you get is a .asx file that fires up Windows Media Player.
Perhaps there's a way to 'intercept' the stream that runs into WMP? *calling for help frm JMG*
that's way too tedious! There's so many steps to get the video, and more to convert it.JMG said:okay i figured it out... takes kinda long.

In PCPLANETS once you choose a vidoe there should be a box labeled "Insert media player directly into your web page"
In that window there is text and a link that points to an asx file.
Copy the link and use NetTransport to download the file. You will end up with an asx file and the medialog.asp file.
Open the medialog.asp file with any text editor and you will see a very long site url. It will be the ONLY text in the file. COpy and download with NetTransport.
YOu will end up with a "makeplaylist.dll" file. Again open with a text editor and copy the link in there. Again it is the only text in there.
Use NetTransporter AGAIN on that link and finally it will download the actual .wmv file.
That's alot of steps so if someone knows a shortcut let me know.
oh yes i was entering it into safari.JMG said:your not entering it into safari.. but nettransport
