Copy rtmpdump.exe to the same folder as rtmpexplorer.exe

How to use RTMPExplorer:
Start rtmpExplorer.
Type the URL address of the video site into rtmpExplorer, instead of typing it into your normal browser.
Click the 'Go' button in rtmpExplorer.
The download may appear to keep restarting, but actually this seems to be an automatic RESUME function. This adds to the partially downloaded file, it does not overwrite it.

Copy rtmpsuck.exe to the same folder as rtmpexplorer.exe
Run RTMPexplorer.
Close rtmpsrv by pressing the Q key and the Enter or close the console window.

Firstly just want to say that maybe there's something going on with Chug a Bug's setup or system that is causing the problem rather than the software itself because this app blew me away when it did what I wanted! So please don't take the off-the-cuff comment "Sorry, can't recommend" as gospel.

I tried the suggested KSV-compiled RTMPDump and I was surprised at how easily & quickly this app went where no other has gone before! As a test I tried other (some commercial) media download software to try and download a protected stream of a current local TV program on a local "On Demand" site. ALL the other software wouldn't allow the download giving an error message that it was protected. Jaksta also recommended using Reply Video Capture as an option which I tried - the result was a really crap quality out-of-synch screen capture despite using high settings on a new grunty pc.

RTMPExplorer using the latest KSV-compiled RTMPDump connected to the site AND downloaded the entire episode minus ads VERY QUICKLY. The resulting .flv was very good quality (1500k @ 260MB) and I converted it quickly to an x264 mp4 using Handbrake just to compare it alongside other proper episode caps. For a webrip at approx the same filesize & spec it compared very well indeed & better than some webrips I've seen done by others!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Tried using the example given below of the 40D programme, but it doesn't see it at all. Flash refuses to do anything I just get a blank window. I managed to get it to open some old TimeTeam broadcasts and they do play in the window, but the tool only manages to download the 4 adverts before the main programme and completely ignores the main show!

Sorry, can't recommend.

https://github.com/downloads/K-S-V/Scripts/rtmpdump-2.4.zip

Much like abandonware StreamTransport, RTMPExplorer renders its GUI out of borrowed bits and pieces of Internet Explorer--if IE is not installed on your system, RTMPExplorer will be unable to load the required modules.

Double-clicking rtmpexplorer.exe misleadingly opens a command-line RTMPDump window on top of the GUI. The user selects and initiates the desired stream through the stub browser GUI, which in turn passes data to the command-line downloader--the user never interacts directly with RTMPDump.

The GUI reduces the burden to even the experienced user: (1) visit web page; (2) start video. Visible dialog between the command line window and the video server indicates that RTMPDump has been handed enough information to save the stream to local file. Once streaming has been initiated, the user should close the browser window (or navigate it to a new page) lest its Flash plugin negotiate a duplicate stream for display on-screen.

If it sounds easy, it is. Some tips in lieu of FAQ:

RTMPExplorer loads portions of Internet Explorer. IE must be available, with Flash ActiveX Control installed.
Ostensibly, the older the Flash plug-in, the less intrinsic security to overcome; for that reason some streaming servers refuse connection to Flash 9 or earlier. This Flash 10.3 offline installer is widely useful.
Workaround for issues with credentialed access to content: visit site in IE with cookies and Java enabled; sign in and confirm functioning stream before returning to RTMPExplorer.
Successful initiation of video stream should immediately populate the command-line window with negotiation dialog. Failure is not necessarily an indicator of hardened security; however, restarting the program is rarely sufficient--reboot and try again.
RTMPExplorer requires .NET 4.0. If you have no intention of installing .NET then don't even bother downloading RTMPExplorer.
Extract the archive rtmpexplorer.zip to the folder where you intend to save your Flash video files. The GUI provides no directory settings.
The extracted archive is portable--you can copy it to any directory you like; your Flash file will be saved to the folder containing the copy of rtmpexplorer.exe used to request the stream.

If you are having trouble downloading certain streams with RTMPExplorer, it is utterly senseless to blame the GUI. Update RTMPDump by downloading the 2.5 build compiled by KSV (https://github.com/K-S-V/Scripts/downloads); unzip the contents and copy rtmpdump.exe, rtmpsrv.exe, rtmpsuck.exe, and rtmpgw.exe to RTMPExplorer folder, overwriting existing executables.

I can confirm these swaps allow the user to download streams from Channel 4 On Demand; it still returns a handshake mismatch but it no longer ends in download failure. Initiating the video stream at the URL http://www.channel4.com/programmes/noel-fieldings-luxury-comedy/4od#3307842 generates the following results:

Easiest way to use rtmpdump. Just past the url of the page where the video is displayed, and it does the job on its own! It fills out all the information, including swf verification.
To me, it's the ultimate tool to download rtmp/rtmpe video streams.
