The .wax file is a kickstarter for your media player. It's a secure server and the only way to get it is by phreaking and if I am not mistaken, it is against the Neowin rules. You can save the stream though. That's the only somewhat legal way of getting it.

Thanks to everyone trying :) I have no idea why something so simple is trying to hide itself.

Secure server? What?

I just managed to get it down; with HiDownload Pro http://www.hidownloa...load-trial.htm.

You do need to set the stream to "Windows Media Streaming" when adding the URL.

File is 2.78MB

What URL did you add?

Have you tried streaming and recording it on VLC? I'm on my way to bed now but try that and see if it'll work.

Ive tried; This just gives the wax file.

Maybe I can try my old Windows Vista WMP method of downloading from a stream. This laptop i'm using in bed has 7 so I can't do it here, and i'm about to go to sleep.

Took me bloody ages, mainly because I refused to look at a guide but eventually caved, I managed to stream and save it via VLC and then convert it to a MP3.

The other reason I want to download the original is because I just put one mp3 but there are others and the second one is LONG so saving it in VLC/Goldwave/etc is taking ages as I have to sit thru the whole ****ing MP3....

The third one is even LONGER than the first two....

I was able to get the files by pulling them out of the temp internet files and renaming the dat to mp3, but it's distorted for some reason, maybe someone else can work from that, I'm tired.

Here's the mp3.

https://rapidshare.com/files/2353477449/Padre Nuestro.mp3

(copy entire line and paste, if the link doesn't show up properly in my post)

It appears to be a two minute clip by the Basque National Orchestra.

Lorenzo Ondarra (artist?) Padre Nuestro (name of clip?)

I think it's from a work by Johannes Brahms. Opus 73.

Link doesn't work. :(

h**ps://rapidshare.com/files/2353477449/Padre Nuestro.mp3

Try the above, putting https in place of h**ps.

The first and third links by the original poster appear to be the same.

I tried the second link (that someone said was a long audio piece) but it's currently down.

Yup, same thing happened here. Distorted....

The links I put are all the same; Just as soon as I can get one to work, I can get all to download.

I think the reason why it is so difficult is because although it is hosted on say

http://83.45.23.54/somefile.mp3
it is actually hosted on a VPN connection that is
http://10.16.10.4/somefile.mp3

and obviously only the server knows how to get their because it is a VPN client. Is it possible?

? What the **** is Neowin doing with MP3 links?

Re: ? What the **** is Neowin doing with MP3 links?

The links are only to freely offered clips meant to advertise an upcoming concert, not to any complete material. So, I think it should be all right.

Maybe a moderator can step up and give us some guidance here.

I'll have a look into this a bit later but i gather it's to do with the headers you need to tell it you're a player of some sort e.g. "User-Agent: NSPlayer/12.0.7600.16385"

here is a sniffed request

The problem is I dont know if this is a network issue or if its a software issue. Sorry about that!

I too would be interested in knowing how it was done, was it a direct copy, a re-encode? etc?

Teach a man to fish and all that jazz.
