    Hey,

    I want to save a .WMA file to my computer so I can listen to it without having to open the webpage. I've tried tons of different programs like SDP, Nettransport, getASFstream and a lot of others, but it just wont work. SDP actualy said:

    > Initialising streaming protocol, waiting for reply...
    > HTTP: Media is simple progressive http downloading...
    > - Receiving HTTP protocol streams -
    > - ** DOWNLOAD COMPLETED ** -

    But when I opened the file, it was 4kb(The download took 1 sec >.<), and when I click on play in Winamp nothing happens.

    Here's the link of the song: http://cgi.omroep.nl/cgi-bin/streams?/bnn/zoeyzo/Rihanna-Umbrella.wma

    It actualy works perfectly if I open the link in Firefox.
    I also don't think it would be against the rules to post this, because everyone can just listen to it from that link, without any restrictions. (In the rules it says: Category 1 Offenses : P2P Instructions (This obviously isn't P2P))
    (Circumventing Copy Protection - I aren't trying/going to copy something)

    Does anyone know how I could get the song on my computer?

    Greets, Max

    I'll try, although it isn't a video, it's only music.

    Edit: Didn't work.
    When I click on the video icon in the right-bottom corner, a popup comes and says:

    Error: Not a valid URL. Visit our web to know in detail what video sites are supported.

    That happenned on the URL I was talking about in the first post. Might be because the site is unsupported, because it isn't a well known site, and they don't list it.
