Hello folks,

I have encountered a real challenge here.

I am having no success in copying a particular audio/video stream which is based upon Adobe connect and served from Adobe's secure server.

I have thus far tried all the Applian suite of programs and none of them (Replay AV, Replay media catcher) see the stream. As far as I know, these tools represent the best of this type of software.

Here is the location:

Anyone know how to capture this stream?

actually it is not a video stream.

we can say that it is session playing back realtime, which uses ADOBE secured services to display session contents, voice overs, mouse movements etc in a sync using some secured playback engine.

Hence, it is not possible to capture this stream from server.

but alternatively you can use some screen capture tool to capture playback of the session as local video file..
for example:

Aneesh, are you certain the example I gave is not a single flash video? The reason I ask is that it seems it would be more efficient to record the webinar as a flash video than to recombine all those elements each time a viewer launches the archived webinar.

I own Camtasia Studio and I think your suggestion (thanks btw) is similar in that respect.

Thank you

Yes, I assure that it is not a single Flash Video,
One strong reason for my believe is, I have checked the download/upload activities while playback of this presentation.
in case of this screen video, download/upload should have been atleast 100kb, but it remains hardly 6-10 kb which is only because of continue audio streaming only..

Thank you Aneesh!

I must have been sleeping that day. It was obvious it was not a video stream. I should have noticed that the text was coming across as copyable text, rather than a video stream.  DOH!

Thanks for your timely response.  

Best regards.
