Your 'change source HTML' tip works...

...but it might be taking a few steps too many. Once you've got the source HTML before your eyes, there's no need to re-make the page with a different KIOSKMODE setting... just wget (or curl -O if you don't have wget installed) the URL for the .mov file you see in the source.

I have tried this method before, or at least one oddly similar to it (curl http://movie.site.com/ -o "movie.mov") in the CLI, and I get the little movie that says that you need QT 5. I think it's because the CLI doesn't have any QT plugins, or player options, the computer doesn't recognize it. So when you try to recieve the movie file, it redirects you to the "get QT 5" movie instead. I might be drawing to conclusions too fast, but I would say that I am an intermediate *nix user, but part of being that is knowing that there are always 10 different ways to do the same thing, and just because it doesn''t work on my box, doesn't mean that it doesn't work every where else. :-) happy camping, and thanks for the original hint. ( I didn't know that was possible) Long Live OmniWeb
