10.4: Another Safari/QuickTime save movie tip
Authored by: romzburg on Jun 02, '05 11:40:20AM

[this is also in the other movie-saving thread]

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.)

If you type the URL directly into the address bar of Safari and then hit Option + Enter it will download the file to your default download folder. No need to go through the html intermediate then.

The easy way is to copy the url from the source and paste it into safari's download window.

Why do people have such a hard time with the terminal.

Find the address like you just did copy it

just type

curl (command-V,paste)

it will download normally to your home folder. I leave a iTerm window open all the time set at 70x8 display, with 90% transparency. I barely know it's there, but a quick download it just a few seconds away.

Suggest using either the "-O" or the "-o _myfile_" command-line option of curl, for it to save the file.
