protocol may be rtmp or rtmpe (encrypted)

./rtmpdump_x86 -o /home/philipp/Desktop/output.mp4 --host ondemand.flash.zdf.newmedia.nacamar.net --port 1935 --protocol rtmp --playpath mp4:zdf/data-sec/quicktime/geoloc_zdf-de/09/07/090727_die_bombe_1_dok_vh.mp4 --swfUrl http://www.zdf.de/ZDFmediathek/flash/player.swf --tcUrl rtmp://ondemand.flash.zdf.newmedia.nacamar.net/zdf --pageUrl http://www.zdf.de/ZDFmediathek/7tagerueckblick?inPopup=true --app zdf --flashVer WIN 10,0,22,87

to grab other/more videos just change the playpath and everything is fine!

Only these three parameters are sufficient: -o, -r and -playpath. -r is the complete rtmp path fould by URL Snooper:

-o "c:\zdf.mp4" -r rtmp://ondemand.flash.zdf.newmedia.nacamar.net/zdf/mp4:zdf/data/quicktime/zdf/09/07/090703_neubauer_h19_vh.mp4 –playpath mp4:zdf/data/quicktime/zdf/09/07/090703_neubauer_h19_vh.mp4

Another possibility, with 4 parameters: -o, -host, -playpath and -app:

-o "c:\zdf.mp4" –host ondemand.flash.zdf.newmedia.nacamar.net –playpath mp4:zdf/data/quicktime/zdf/09/07/090703_neubauer_h19_vh.mp4 –app zdf
