Oh, and one more thing... The RPM is just a text file containing an  
address to the RM file you need. So, when you click a link and it  
saves an RPM file either to your desktop (or to a temporary location)  
just read it from a shell or a text editor and get the "rtsp://"  
address. You can then feed that to a stream dumper (though some  
dumpers can 'follow' the link themselves anyway).

Using these techniques there has yet to be a single file on the  
Internet that I haven't managed to grab in some way :)
