its possible that the swf player changes vi > tv ?. just one more
obfuscation? you can see that rmc used the vi app too. maybe it shows
up correctly in the memory dump of your browser?

more info:
Step 1. Use PMDump to dump your browser memory to your hard disk when you are watching the video you want to rip (you can pause it to avoid the lag)
Step 2. Use a hex editor to open the memory dump file,I use HxD Editor,its free and portable
Step 3. Press Ctrl + F to search keywords such as "rtmpe://" "mp4:" "stream start" "connect to",there you can find the url you want


rtmp subtitle memory dump howto using ollydbg:

i was unable to play the video, possibly because of a bad proxy.

your url works for me, good job!
