I tryed to use Git but it seems that i am behind a firewall that block me and let me get below error


C:\ffmpeg-SVN>c:\cygwin\bin\git clone git://git.videolan.org/x264.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /cygdrive/c/ffmpeg-SVN/x264/.git/
git.videolan.org[0:]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)


i googled and other says this should be a firewall blocking you, and i also recognized that there is daily snapshots for the code.

i used this URL "ftp://ftp.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/" but i can not find any snapshoot for the version you mentioned "1.1"

Please could you tell me another way to get this version? or could you send (tarred) it to me, using my e-mail ? or could you help me to work around my firewall?
