I believe these are too asx files:

I can post more but I don't want to spam the bug report :)

http://raincloud.warnerbros.com/wbmovies/watchmen/videojournals/journal3_large.asx works (at least at the moment). Link taken from this blog post about the upcoming Watchmen movie:


There are several links to .asx files there.

If someone can provide some http://.asx URLs, it would help me to get this feature back in. To be useful, the URLs need to:

1) Be working. Many old .asx URLs I have don't actually work anymore.

2) Actually contain mms:// URLs. Many working .asx URLs I find don't contain mms:// URLs inside them--instead, they just point directly to an http://.mp3 or something like that.

This feature was removed from mimms 3.0, but may be readded in the future, especially if someone sends a patch. =)

This is supported in MiMMS 2.0.0. Let me know if you have trouble.

It would be very nice if MiMMS could also download & parse .asx files and extract MMS URLs from them. The parser wouldn't have to be very intelligent, IMO. Even a simple strstr() search for "mms://" should suffice very well.
