I discovered rtmpdump tonight and it seems to be the exact tool i need 
to retrieve a rtmp dump on a website.

I try to download a stream with rtmpdump 2.3, but i had the following 
error :

rtmpdump --verbose --debug -r 
-W "http://www.wat.tv/images/v40/PlayerWat.swf?revision=4.0.4"
WARNING: HandShake: Type mismatch: client sent 6, server answered 9
DEBUG: HandShake: Server Uptime : 566467773
DEBUG: HandShake: FMS Version   :
WARNING: HandShake: Server not genuine Adobe!
ERROR: RTMP_Connect1, handshake failed.
DEBUG: Closing connection.

Then i read that only the rtmpdump 2.4 handle the rtmpe, so i downloaded 
it from the git master branch and launched it again :

rtmpdump --verbose --debug -r 
-W "http://www.wat.tv/images/v40/PlayerWat.swf?revision=4.0.4"

Segmentation fault

I tried with rtmp:// rtmpe://, with or without the -W parameter, but it 
segfaults everytime with the 2.4 version.

I think this might happen because the stream is protected with DRM, or 
maybe i downloaded an unstable branch from the git server.
But i would like to know if it is possible at all to download it :-)

Thank you for your replies.
