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


       mimms [options] <url> [filename]


       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.

       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
