Protected ASX to DivX. Is it possible?

#1

I have some sport videos downloaded from my subscription to a sports site. The files are .ASX and can only be played in Windows Media Player. I remember that at the beginning of the subscription I had to download a licence to Media Player for they to work. Now I like to burn these ones on some cds to play them in my stand alone player. I use Dr DivX 6 to convert almost all my material without problems but these files are protected and until now I have not found a way to do anything with them.
How can I do this? There has to be a way arround this situation. I have payed for this content.
Thank you.

Hi,

asx is a streaming format. There are some converters available but off hand don’t recall(Google for them). You will find either free/paid stuff(mostly paid) to do the job that you are asking for. But this as anything else you want will take time. The ones I found(all paid - dont know whether they do specifically what you asked for - please check up on your own - reason asx is a rarely used format and most pages dont specify whether the software supports it, but usually if they support asf they should also support asx):

Thanks, but it looks like none of these can handle protected ASX. Some say that ASX are just text links but my files are the videos themselves with several MB each.
I am going to have to record this from the screen output then, any good utyl that can record videos from the screen? Thanks!
