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.

Originally, mimms was forked directly from the last known version of mmsclient, which was for years unmaintained. mimms was started with the following goals:

* Keep a working copy of “mmsclient” (now “mimms”) well maintained
* Fix lots of the bugs that were in mmsclient
* Extend the functionality of the program in useful ways

Mimms is a command line tool, you can easily get it from Ubuntu repository by this command in terminal:

sudo apt-get install mimms


mimms [options] <url> [filename]

To get options, run :

mimms --help
