Just use ASF Recorder to "grab" it

Like others, I am getting the following error once the file is saved to disk:

"Windows Media Player cannot find the file. The server name, shared directory name, or file name may be incorrect.

Check the file name and path for any misspellings or discrepancies. If this error message persists, contact your content provider for the correct location of the file you want to play."

What it sounds like to me is that ASXRecorder isn't removing the URL reference from the file. So, when you play it, the first thing it does is go look for the file on the internet.

Has anyone got this working yet?

yeah, that was my conclusion also. however, since i'm still connected to the net, why doesn't it find it? <shrug> no luck yet.

Yeah...haven't figured it out yet. It's all there (27.5 mb)....it's just getting screwed up in the header somewhere.
i open the file with quickview and viewed it in hex mode. i know nothing about what an wmv should look like, but the file is more than 90% zeros. very different from the other wmv has significantly fewer big chunks of zeroes. i think the program is buggy..

The readme file states that the program only works with Media Player 6.4, NOT with version 7. Apparently the old version stays on your machine when you upgrade, so you just have to find the other executable.

But mine still didn't work... :(

After some extensive research, I found the following link on some Japanese site: http://www12.tok2.com/home/EJ20K/nur_time-wm8-500.wmv. Sure enough, it's the same 27.6 MB video, in a file, and completely viewable (no asxrecorder required!). The file is on a fairly slow server. I'd host it myself, but RoadRunner only lets me put 5 MB on my "personal" page, plus it's metered. :(

Sweet! That was awesome!! God i love track racing. Thats where my sti will be most of the time. I can't understand the fascination so many people have with drag racing. Driving a car in a straight line is so boring to me. I almost never drag race. Only if i need a 1/4 mile time for my cars. Then its all track after that. :D
