aka NetTransport aka Xi Net-Xfer
shareware program from Xi Software in China that lets you download files by various
streaming protocols such as MMS (Microsoft Media Server) and RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol),
RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol), RTMPT, Flash, BitTorrent, eMule, RN5 authentication,
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and SSH (Secure Shell)
encryption. The current version is v2.96f.686Last revised/verified:2013-07-07.
It understands Russian dolls such as .asx, .smi to acquire real URLs (Uniform Resource Locators).
This is useful for example if you want a permanent copy of a video presentation,
rather than just view it online. This is a very technical program. The documentation
will sail over the head of most people wanting to use it. The menus are deeply nested
like a rabbit warren. You can do fancy things like load a file with several threads
at once to speed the download.
Somebody needs to write a step-by-step tutorial for people who don’t
understand and perhaps don’t want to understand the technology behind it.
The author is very co-operative. Even before I registered the program, I sent him
the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of a file I was having trouble downloading, and asked
if the fault was mine or the program’s. He sent me back the magic settings
within hours. It turned out all I needed to download a mms: video was, was click download ⇒
properties ⇒ other settings ⇒ streaming ⇒ via
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
