I am trying to capture a stream using
mplayer using the
mplayer -dumpstream mms://<url> -dumpfile out.wmv
But I'm always getting this error after several tens of megabytes:
nop_streaming_read error : Resource temporarily unavailable
I'm connected by wireless, but I still think it's reasonable to expect to be able to capture a whole stream...
The general advice on the internet for this problem is to retry the capture. However, I have been retrying automatically using a script, and it's been running more than three days now, always restarting due to this error.
Another thing I tried is checking out mplayer from svn, changing
to = 10 * 1000 to
to = 600 * 1000 in
stream/tcp.c, compiling and using this
mplayer. It should have increased the timeout to 10 minutes, I think. However, I still see this problem.
