Hi,

I want to create a program that is able to save a (unprotected) video file from a mms-server.

I tried different ways to get the stream and write it to the harddisk but I failed each time. Is there a way in C# to do this

Thanks in advance.

I was thinking...

I am now running the video using the Media Player object. But to get the data to view the video, Media Player has opened a connection with the server and is interacting with it.

Is it possible to get the connection stream that Media Player is using, intercept the data send by that stream and safe it to a file while the video is playing

I would also like to know this. Though I do believe there is a featurein windows media player to save the viewed file . file>save > in the full version.

Yes there is, but not for saving 'streaming' files from a wmv streaming server called MMS://

I found an open source program (http://www.videolan.org) who is able to record live streaming video files.

This proves that their have to be away to create such a program. Any idea's to do it in C# or to import the DLL of this program.
