Download an MP4 file in Safari

This was a new one to me, thanks.

I usually use the Terminal and curl which is available on all recent Mac OS X installations.

curl -o outputfilename address_to_download

For people not used to the terminal it might be a bit daunting at first, but it is rather simple. I have gotten non-geeks at work to find the terminal appealing after showing them how to do it. The advantage with curl is that it can handle almost any kind of download.

or even easier tell curl to use the file's name on the server:

curl -O url_to_file
