mimms - mms (e.g. mms://) stream downloader
mimms [options] <url> [filename]
mimms is a program designed to allow you to download streams using the MMS protocol and save them to your computer, as opposed to watching them live. Similar functionality is available in full media player suites such as Xine, MPlayer, and VLC, but mimms is quick and easy to use and, for the time being, remains a useful program.
--version show program's version number and exit -h, --help show this help message and exit -c, --clobber automatically overwrite an existing file -r, --resume attempt to resume a partially downloaded stream -b BANDWIDTH, --bandwidth=BANDWIDTH the desired bandwidth for stream selection in BANDWIDTH bytes/s -t TIME, --time=TIME stop downloading after TIME minutes -v, --verbose print verbose debug messages to stderr -q, --quiet don't print progress messages to stdout
mimms supports only URLs that are supported by libmms, e.g. mms://, mmsh://, mmst://. Previous versions tried to do fancy things with http:// URLs and .asx files, but this version does not (yet?) support that.
