SDP Downloader gives error 10060 when downloading Windows Media (WMV, ASX...). Playback on Windows Media Player works fine.

share|improve this question

Error code 10060 means timeout. If the stream works correctly in Windows Media Player, it's likely the server doesn't support the selected protocol.

Try changing the protocol:

  1. In SDP Downloader, go to Setup | Setup Options.
  2. Switch to the Protocol tab.
  3. Try one of the other protocols. HTTP is your preferred option (unless HTTP is the option that failed), then TCP, then UDP as a last resort.
