save streaming content to local resources

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm looking for a .Net/COM component which would allow a .Net programmer
with no streaming experience to be able to save online streams to local
resources (files or to DB).

I know that if I read this post I would surely think - pick up a manual and
start reading, however we have no time for this since this is one of several
demands a customer added on the last minute of a projecct.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks,
Daniel

Hi Michael,

Our customer will supply us with links to microsoft media streaming links
(mms://...) and we are supposed to save those links to local files (or DB)
and allow access to them on the company portal (anybody said proxy?). The
reason they are doing so is that they only allow access from their internal
network to a white list of sites.

Hello Daniel,

It's not too easy task. You need to use WMFSDK. I recomend to ask/google
into microsoft.public.windowsmedia.sdk group. There were several threads
releting to your question

Daniel,
This is not a trivial task as the mms:// protocol is a custom media
streaming protocol. At least, I have not seen any .NET class libraries that
can do this, and the only freely available program I know that can capture
and save MMS streams is a program called "SDP Downloader". However, it is not
a class library.
Best of luck in your challenge.
Peter
