Getting VirtualDubMod source code from sourceforge

    I just gone through some idiotic experience with Sourceforge.net and
    VirtualDubMod. Obviously they can make it easier for newbies like me to
    get source code, but they don't.

    So here I am. Hoping that someone out there know how to get the source
    code.

    This is what I have done.

    1. I have been to this web site
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualdubmod. And have click Browse
    CVS link somewhere in that side. And Sourceforge.net show me the source
    code via ViewVC web interface. Using this interface I can download or
    view a file but how to download a folder? or at least collection of
    files? It is not usefull if I can't do that.

    2. I have tried to use TortoiseCVS using the following entry

    :pserver::/cvsroot/virtualdubmod

    with anonymous user.

    Even this is something I just madeup since there is no such information
    in sourceforge.net that clearly tell me how to access VirtualDubMod CVS
    repository using Tortoise. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I don't mind
    to be wrong. I just want the damn source code ;)

    This is the error that I get from Tortoise

    connect to cvs.sourceforge.net:2401 failed: A socket operation was
    attempted to an unreachable host.
    Success, CVS operation completed

    Obviously, it will be much better if the source code is available
    somewhere else. I am getting tired with this sourceforge.net fiasco.

    Cheers!
