10.4: Yet another Safari/QuickTime save movie tip
Authored by: romzburg on Jun 02, '05 11:38:01AM

Here's a clunky non-terminal way to get at those non-savable movie files too:

Do a "view source" and find the movie (avi, wmv, mov, whatever) file that is being streamed and copy it's full URL.

Make yourself an html document that has that URL as a hyperlink.

Launch that html document and CTRL-click, or right-click your hyperlink and save the file. It will now save since your html document is not restricting the movie to just stream.

I have a "download.html" document on my desktop for just such emergencies, and have used it for all kinds of streamed content.

(I used to use but that no longer works with 10.4.)

I'm always right and I never lie.
