I know there's a command that we write on a terminal to download a streaming RealPlayer (*.rm) video. Can someone tell me what it is? Thank you!...

    Do you have mplayer installed? If so, all you need do is type:
    mplayer -dumpstream rtsp://www.site.com/directory/filename.rm

    When it is done recording there will be a file saved, in what ever directory your bash shell happens to be in, named stream.dump (I think, or something like that). Rename it to anynameyouwant.rm

    Here is a reference for streaming media for watching online streams with Linux:
