    Hi, sorry if this is a repost, I was just wondering if there was a good app to save QT streams (URLs I guess) to fully independent QT videos?
    I know of StreamRipperX that does this for audio streams, but I don't know of a video equivalent?
    Any ideas?

    it is much easier to grab audio.. video is harder. good luck, such a thing does not exist to my knowledge. depending on how you do it you may be able to have mplayer dump the video to a file.. but who knows beyond that.

    you would think there would be an app to take a stream of data and stack it into a file!? :confused:

    not all files are created equal. you understand that as a movie is streamed it is skipping and dropping frames left and right ... right? it's not easy to just start grabbing data from a stream and saving it.. any other file, sure.. but not a streaming file.

    There are a bunch of apps that will do this for audio, and a bunch of different types of audio stream too, so why not video? All you have to do is handshake (and verify) the data that is streamed into the Mac, which shouldn't be too bad and streamed data already has a lot of handshaking protocol built in.

    Yeah, I'd like to save the keynote, too. I have QuickTime Pro, by the way.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'd say that program would work, but the video wouldn't be nearly as good of quality as it could be. Maybe we'll be able to just download it sometime soon in decent quality? Who knows?

    Another request......



    No, I think we're missing something here. How did you download and save the streaming video?

    okay, i know how to save a regular rtsp:// stream... using the command line VLC method (also there's the command line Mplayer method).

    but now the trick is to find out how to save a H.264 rtsp:// stream... ;) because i think that VLC and Mplayer can't play H.264 so therefore can't save the stream as usual.

    so if anyone know's how to do it...

    and come on iGary - be a good sport. :)
