Play .mms streaming radio in iTunes
Authored by: Keef on Sep 06, '08 11:08:46PM

No luck with this tip - Quicktime Pro will play the mms stream but the 'save' stays greyed out. I tried the following with VLC and Quicktime Pro and seemed to work OK:

1. Open VLC and select File > Open Network
2. Click on HTTP/FTP/MMS/RTSP and fill in the mms URL e.g. mms://81.20.48.50:80/PlanetRock?MSWMExt=.asf
3. Click on OK - note: ignore any error screens
4. Next, File > Save Playlist (format: Extended m3u), save the file and close VLC
5. Now, open the m3u file in Quicktime - it should play after buffering
6. Save the file as a .mov and that file will play/stream in iTunes

Note: VLC 0.8.6c, Quicktime Pro 7.5, iTunes 7.7.1

For anyone arriving here trying to do this on Snow Leopard you'll need Quicktime 7 which is either on your SL install disk, or if like me you've not got that to hand from this KB Article
