When I choose to download the .asx file for windows media player or VLC media player it will work fine for a few days then stop working. It won't load the stream. If I re-download the file then it will work again. I'm guessing this is because the links or whatever are changed every few days.

This is really dumb as the whole point of downloading the file is so I can have it on my desktop to launch the stream when I want.
is this just how it works or is there something I can do?

I believe RR randomizes feed links every few days to prevent non-API clients from utilizing their streams without permission. This will affect ASX files as well.
