well, FWIW, I played a sample video on there with Firefox on Windows
XP, it says it -requires- windows media player (which of course, I
have), and hwen the video played, the video streaming URL was...
html/js source, without much luck, but Firefox tells me the video was
delivered with mimetype: application/x-mplayer2
ah, and that asx file delivered from the above URL itself contains...
<asx version = "3.0">
(after I deleted a WHOLE lotta whitespace)
and, that dinnen.cannabis.granny.cnn.ws.wmv file itself is in fact...
but, none of these are getting me the actual video file, I'm probably
so, I'm guessing you need a video player that can interpret ASX XML
headers, and then stream whatever they are pointing at.
