Anyway to capture QuickTime on-demand video stream broadcast to local harddrive?
Quicktime Pro, I think ...
No, Quicktime Pro doesn't do it either.
Oh nuts ... thought it did ... I was going to 'go Pro', but I might have needed such a function, so it looks as though I won't.
Thanks for saving me the extra bucks.
Quicktime Pro does let you save a lot of stuff (movie trailers, for example) but streaming broadcasts (and a few dollars) are not among them.
I am a bit annoyed about not capturing streaming. And I am more annoyed that I'll be buying Tiger and my pro money will vanish since we all get the same thing. I am happy the extra cost is going but I am annoyed I bought pro expecting more functionality than it gave. Obviously you can capture streams with other software which makes it even more disappointing.
In which applications can you capture streaming video? Real? WMP? I'm not aware of single one that permits this; in fact, video is streamed in part to prevent it from being captured.
There's a Windows app (VPC compatible) called StreamBox VCR that lets you capture Real streams. I don't know of anything for QuickTime though.
Check out Snapz Pro X. Maybe it'll help.
Yeah but that doesn't download the streaming file - so if your connection isn't performing at its peak, you end up with dropped frames, etc.
And its not cheap...
mplayer will get streams...
Yeah, but it doesn't record streams.
I dunno, papersushi, I checked VersionTracker, and except for Snapz Pro, you may be out of luck.
Snapz Pro basically is a screencapture software doesn't really do direct video stream capture. Take too much system resources and quality is going to be horrible and of course drop frames is unavoidable. Huh, looks like there is nothing that is out there can do quicktime video stream capturing huh.
