Trying to use rtmpdump to download a video from my city council's website but not sure how to proceed from here.

The video in question is the mayor's budget address, linked here.

I looked at the source of this page and came up with this URL for the video:


I don't understand how to use rtmpdump to download this video, or, any other tool for that matter. Can you help me?

The RTMP protocol is for streaming media. RTMPDump can capture the content of a RTMP stream and save it to disk.

Best answer: Try using Stream Transport instead.
I was able to capture a stream with it, but I'm not sure if it's the one you want.

^-- That is, I pasted your first link into stream transport, and it showed available streams to download, but, I'm not sure if the stream it found is the specific one you want or not.

Response by poster: Thanks! Stream transport worked beautifully. I was aware of RTMPdump but didn't really understand how to use the command line options to download the entire video. Thanks!
