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 iGetMovies.app but that no longer works with 10.4.)
