In my case firefox has a player installed for wmv files and starts to
play this stream in the browser. All I see is the tail end of a bbc
weather forcast. Just the bbc weather logo and about 5 seconds of
sound. Then nothing.
wget doesn't get much.
Can anyone up the ante with a better URL or an alternate method to
view/download Click? (ubuntu 7.04 FF)
