Hope everyone had a Happy New Year!
I've been trying to figure out how to recording streaming video from
My TV >> CNBC-TV18 LIVE streaming >> TV on Demand
since a family friend was in a contest that has been broadcast on this station.
Below are the steps taken
1. Download Firefox browser
2. Install Video DownloadHelper at
3. At 7:30 AM go to My TV >> CNBC-TV18 LIVE streaming >> TV on Demand
4. Start recording the video by saving it to Desktop. However, the Downloads pop-up only says "Starting"
5. At 8:00 AM when the program is finished, shut down the Firefox browser. Now the Download says it will take 9 hours to download something that is 1 GB (around 20 KB per second). However my usual download speed 7 MB per second.
6. While in the middle of download I am able to open the .flv file using VLC media player (VideoLAN - VLC media player for Mac OS X)
7. When I open the .flv file, it shows broadcast from 8:02 AM, rather than 7:30 AM
What am I doing wrong? I have been attempting to download the streaming media of this show yesterday morning, and today morning. I only have two more chances left, as the show will repeat again next Saturday and Sunday.
Will appreciate any guidance.
