WebVideoCap now captures Silverlight video streams

While watching a video in Microsoft Web site, I accidently discovered that my WebVideoCap tool cannot capture the video.
I don't remember that I received any complaint about this problem, but this is somewhat make sense - because Microsoft is probably one of very few Web sites that uses Silverlight to play a video.
After looking into it with a sniffer, I found out that Silverlight streams are very similar to MMS that WebVideoCap already supports, so with a very small change in the code, I managed to make it work.
In the bottom line, starting from version 1.33, WebVideoCap can also capture the Silverlight videos in Microsoft Web site.

WebVideo Cap WAS able to capture Silverlight Video. Now it can't. I wish they'd fix that.
