SYNOPSIS

mimms [options] <url> [filename]

DESCRIPTION

mimms is a program designed to allow you to download streams using the MMS protocol and save them to your computer, as opposed to watching them live. Similar functionality is available in full media player suites such as Xine, MPlayer, and VLC, but mimms is quick and easy to use and, for the time being, remains a useful program.

OPTIONS

--version
  show program’s version number and exit
-h, --help
  show this help message and exit
-c, --clobber
  automatically overwrite an existing file
-r, --resume
  attempt to resume a partially downloaded stream
-b BANDWIDTH, --bandwidth=BANDWIDTH
  the desired bandwidth for stream selection in BANDWIDTH bytes/s
-t TIME, --time=TIME
  stop downloading after TIME minutes
-v, --verbose
  print verbose debug messages to stderr
-q, --quiet
  don’t print progress messages to stdout

URLS

mimms supports only URLs that are supported by libmms, e.g. mms://, mmsh://, mmst://. Previous versions tried to do fancy things with http:// URLs and .asx files, but this version does not (yet?) support that.
