save streaming video

November 28, 2004 / Linux Unix QNX

so how do you save streaming video on linux?

The question came to me when I wanted to show Murat a commercial of Katamari Damashi (a great game!).
Murat’s IE is messed up and he can’t play streaming video. :(

I knew that on windows I could use StreamBox to save video serving on mms:// protocol. What about on Linux???

After searching for a bit I found this:

after “./configure && make” I was able to grab the commercial and send the actual video to Murat :D

good stuff! that’s one more dependency on Windows gone!

I mirrored THE FILE on my own server just because it’s convenient for myself.
