I have a Quicktime stream that I would like to save to a local file. (I want to convert it into a sane file format, because the device I want to watch it on doesn't play mov files.)
When looking at the
mov link for the stream and saving the file in the browser, the
.mov file is only 1700 bytes large and when looking at it, it does (among binary garbage) contain
rtsp://www.the-server.com/media/filename.mp4 -- which I assume is the data actually streamed by the Quicktime plugin.
Looking at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Time_Streaming_Protocol doesn't exactly raise my hopes of getting at the data, but maybe someone has an idea?
