Playing with Worcester's City Council video downloads and live stream

If you're using Windows, you should be able to click here and watch the Government Channel with Media Player. (Here's the City's page with the live stream.) Looks like the stream is ASF, with WMA2 audio and WMV3 video. The resolution is 320x240, half of standard TV broadcast. The audio is 16bit, 22050 Hz, 16kbps. With VLC, I can watch the stream at this address: http://view.liveindexer.com/ASXGenerator.aspx?mediaSKU=gX0%2bQho2Oh4btw%2fhUV%2fdVw%3d%3d VLC translates this to: mms://worcester.ecstreams.com/WorcesterLive/?MSWMExt=.asf This also works: mms://worcester.ecstreams.com/WorcesterLive/ VLC complains about this URL but gets it to work: http://worcester.ecstreams.com/WorcesterLive/

Downloads

Kevin Ksen notes:
I was able to record stream using the freeware program, Orbit Downloader http://www.orbitdownloader.com and this stream mms://worcester.ecstreams.com/WorcesterLive/?MSWMExt=.asf on Windows XP
Much like Barry Marshall dosing himself with ulcer bacteria to prove they were the cause of stomach ulcers, I've installed Microsoft Silverlight on my computer and agreed to install Microsoft Media Pack. I can now view the City Council archive pages. The doggone pages have no video download link! URLs like this will let you stream, but not download easily: http://worcester.ecstreams.com/WorcesterOD/\City Council\2009\20090106.wmv
