    I wondered whether you can use WMP to record streaming video. I get seminars online occasionally that come in on WMP. Is there a way for WMP to record something like that? I could change WMP files to go to another player like WinAmp, but I like the looks of the way the video comes in. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

    No recording with Windows Media Player, but...
    If your looking to get streaming video off the internet, first check the site to see if the site offers a download of the video content in question.
    Another method I have used to capture streaming video content off the internet is to go into the browser's cache and look for it there. It works about 70-80% of the time. Capturing internet content in Silverlight, I havn't quite figured out yet.

    Try using Firefox with the Download Helper addon - it is able to capture and download all of the videos that I have tried this with, including webinars.

    Thanks for the responses. I kind of thought WNP couldn't, but since that is what was used to send the video on, I thought I would consider. I will check on the cache after the next one. Thanks.

    Clear out the browser's cache just before going to the site or running the streaming video. This will make it easier to
    find. You may also want to use a multicodec player like VCL for playback.
