    Downloading a streaming realplayer clip....

    Hi all,

    One of the teachers here wants a video clip downloaded off t'interweb for use in an assembly, however the video clip is streamed using Realplayer and it doesnt save the video in Temporary Internet Settings, so we are unable to play it locally on the machine.

    The video clip is located here:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/charity/...vehelped.shtml and it is the one entitled "Daniel's Story"

    She needs is reasonably quickly as well, so any help/ideas would be appreciated.

    Cam Studio, it takes a little messing with to make sure you are capturing the audio but works well enough. It captures any part of the screen to a avi file. Quality is good enough, especially when put through movie maker afterwards to shrink the file size a bit.

    Oh and its free woohoo!

    well, in resources packs to the teacher, they say you can use the clips in assemblies to the students, so surely we should be able to use them.

    Plus, they can't expect us to have a fully functioning network in our gym (where assemblies take place!)

    I use a brillient freeware program called orbit downloader. http://www.orbitdownloader.com/

    It captures virtually all streaming meda invluding RM, WMV and Flash files with no problems.

    Just realised, I captured the same video myself a few days ago for use in assemblies next week!

    No problem, I think that bit of software deserves a place on the wiki, as it's a question that comes up fairly frequently, and Orbit really is the best piece of software I've ever come across for doing it!

    Mike,

    Yes it does a brilliant job - I've been off all over the web tonight grabbing all sorts for use at my school. Thanks again for the tip.

    Darrell.
