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 -)
