Recording Real Media, Real Video and Real Audio streams: Download Real Player streaming media (Real One Player)(record rm, rmvb, ra, ram, rpm, smil) [RTSP, PNM, HTTP protocols]
Real Media Recorders allow to download RM, RMVB, RA, RAM, SMIL streams.
Some of them also allow to postprocess content of the following metafiles: SMIL, RAM, RPM.
Metafiles are just simple text files which are used mainly to redirect you to an actual stream. If your Real Media Recorder doesn't support metafile postprocessing you can get the URL of a media stream following our instructions.
Some Stream Recorders allow to save only Streaming Real Media. Other Streaming Video Recording Software allows you to download not only Real Media, Real Video and Real Audio, but also Flash video, Windows Media, QuickTime video, Shoutcast/Icecast radio streams. After saving Real Media, Real Video or Real Audio streams to your hard drive as files, they can be played by RealPlayer or Real Alternative.
RTSP, HTTP, and PNM protocols are used for Streaming Real Media, Real Video and Real Audio.
PNM protocol is rather old and not supported by the majority of the newest stream recorders. Mass Downloader is the best recorder of PNM streams.
For non PNM streams we suggest you to try WM Recorder, Mass Downloader, HiDownload and Net Transport.
As for Real7ime Converter (r7c), we suggest not to use it until you try alternative software mentioned above.
