8. Random Fun > Record a Streaming Video

Record a Streaming Video

VCRs and PVRs have enabled us to record live video content. Using an application called VLC, you can do the same with streaming video.

You can’t always sit and watch a streaming video from beginning to end. When the stream is live, this becomes a problem, because you can’t pause the stream and have it start where you left off. Using VLC (http://www.videolan.org; free, open source) you can save the stream and watch it at your convenience.

Finding a Stream

Every streaming video has an Internet address associated with it. In order for VLC to locate the streaming video, you need the entire address. This address often begins with either rtp or rtsp and is formatted much like a web URL.
