WebVideoCap now captures Silverlight video streams

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

While watching a video in Microsoft Web site, I accidently discovered that my WebVideoCap tool cannot capture the video.
I don't remember that I received any complaint about this problem, but this is somewhat make sense - because Microsoft is probably one of very few Web sites that uses Silverlight to play a video.
After looking into it with a sniffer, I found out that Silverlight streams are very similar to MMS that WebVideoCap already supports, so with a very small change in the code, I managed to make it work.
In the bottom line, starting from version 1.33, WebVideoCap can also capture the Silverlight videos in Microsoft Web site.

CurrPorts – address and port in the same column

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Starting from version 1.50 of CurrPorts utility, there is a new option: "Display Port In Address".
If you turn on this option, the local/remote addresses columns will also display the port number,in address:port format.

If you turn on this option, the port columns are not needed anymore, so you can go to 'Column Settings' and remove them.

If you want to use this feature, download the latest version of Volumouse, and in the 'Indicator Type' option, choose 'On Screen Display'.
