mimms(1)		    General Commands Manual		      mimms(1)

NAME
       mimms - mms (e.g. mms://) stream	downloader

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.
