Doesn't work for me...
Authored by: daveschroeder on Jan 07, '04 02:15:56PM

FYI, this hint doesn't seem to work. I just tried it with vlc 0.7.0 (both within the app and in Terminal) final on the MWSF 2004 keynote stream, and it fails (I'm not behind any firewalls or personal routers):

Authored by: pilbery on Jan 08, '04 08:04:37AM

This almost works for me...for some reason the MPEG4_audio packetizer runs. but not the video.
Do I need to change some preferences?

Perfect solution found!
Authored by: mfritze on Jan 11, '04 04:07:54AM

Hi!

I found the perfect solution: find out the rtsp://.../ url and replace the server with http://a772.g.akamai.net/ - via this server you can simply download the movie via HTTP in Safari, etc. No need for rtsp tricks :-) BTW: works fine for other keynotes, too (like WWDC 2003, etc)

Well, most current streams works with that, but using that for the Paris keynote I get a "Access Denied" error :-(
Too bad, would like to have a collection with all those keynotes around. Sadly the older ones seem to be completely removed from the server

I downloaded at least the MWSF2004 keynote and the WWDC2003 keynote without a problem.

Yep, the same did I :-) But sadly the Paris keynote doesn't work, and VLC is also only with audio and no video... too bad :-/

Do you still have a url for the wwdc2003 presentation ? I managed to get to http://www.apple.com/hotnews/articles/2003/06/wwdc and that has a link to the keynote on the page, but that link is dead.
thx

managed to get some of the other ones archived; in part for myself, but my brother and sister both live out in the boondocks, ie < 56k modem xfer, and they have probs pulling it;

Thanks, worked very well for me (for an mms stream)! :)
This way I can use curl or safari, who both support to resume the download. (For curl, use: curl http://source.wmv -o output.wmv --continue-at -)
