       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.

       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.
