.asx files (and their counterpart .wmx files) are simply shortcuts to the actual Windows Media file (extension .wmv or .asf). Most of the time they can simply be read with notepad. You might be able to paste the link into your browser and save them, but it won’t work if they link to a streaming server. Those were designed so the video can’t be saved, but can only be streamed. In that case you can use asfrecorder, windows media recorder (version 9 is pay, but you might find the free version 8 still lying around on the net), StreamBox VCR, or HiDownload.
I should append: in some cases idiots name their .wmv or .asf files .asx. The file’s there (you can tell if it’s more than a few bytes long), and all you have to do is just rename it. reply

i find an explaination for asx format:An asx file is used to store information on servers and media files for streaming video and audio over the Internet. You could view an ASX file in a text editor to find out the name of the file and server address of the streaming content. ASX stands for Advanced Stream Redirector.
hope it help:) reply

This should help. It’s a guide that shows how to load the .asx file into VLC media player, then use VLC to get the original .wmv. It works; I’ve done it myself!

Because it’s a RTSP server. Streaming servers. reply

I tried this VLC method but the video doesn’t play in VLC!

Much appreciated for any advice. reply

Many files with the .asx extension are really just misnamed .wmv files, so look at the file size. If it is over 1MB, it is probably .wmv, and all you need to do is rename it - change the extension to .wmv - I just did this on a group of files that would not load into WMM, and once I did it they loaded fine. reply

Seriously, I was testing and I found out that say you had an 'mms://' at the start of your asx file (Open with Notepad, find the link), replace it with 'http://' and it downloads instantly (Google Chrome is the one I used). reply

ASX is not an actual video or audio format, but just an xml file, that points to an ASF video file or WMA audio file.

Just google search Step by Step Guide on How to Convert ASX to WMV, AVI, MP4, MP3, WMA

You will find as many software and step by step guide how to convert asx files to wmv

I´ve not completed the setup as I am not quite sure it won´t install the babylon crap which is a pain in the ass to uninstall further.
Serious companies should not have any businesses with Babylon. reply

I know a very nice ASF Converter that can convert ASF files to almost all the video and audio formats like WMV, MP4, MP3 and more. You can find it by typing “ASF Converter” in Google. reply

To convert ASX to the more popular MP3, a professional ASX to MP3 converter is needed. Avdshare Audio Converter is just the most professional ASX to MP3 converter we are talking about. reply
