Official Streams

There are several official streams in a lot of different formats:

H.264

RTMP

The first link leads to the flash player on FEM Webpage.

How to download the streams?

I would recommend waiting for the final release, but if you are really impatient here a short guide how to download (dump) the streams.
I'm assuming that you are using Linux/Mac.

WMV

Install mimms:

Mac: sudo port install mimms
Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install mimms

Go for it: mimms mmsh://wmv.29c3.fem-net.de/hallX hallX.wmv

Note that mimms can sometimes create crap wmv files and it will mess up timecodes completely, cause you're dumping a live stream.
An alternative would be mplayer: mplayer -dumpstream mmsh://wmv.29c3.fem-net.de/saalX -dumpfile SaalX.wmv

RTMP (H.264)

Install rtmpdump:

Mac: sudo port install rtmpdump
Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install rtmpdump

Go for it: rtmpdump -r "rtmp://h264.29c3.fem-net.de:1935/rtmp/saalX_hq"
