10.4: Another Safari/QuickTime save movie tip
Authored by: turnerm5 on Jun 02, '05 04:50:32PM
It's possible to get the links for the ITMS videos as well by using a tool such as tcpflow. I just run this command right before I download the video
 sudo /usr/local/bin/tcpflow -c -i en1 port 80 | grep -oE '\<GET *.*\.mov.*HTTP/1.1 *\>|Host: *.*' 
The address for the video on Apple's servers pops up. This gets around all the qtch issues you get when saving from the ITMS. Hope this helps. Just remember to get tcpflow. http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/welcome.html

Just a note to newbies that your ethernet port might be en0 and not en1 as in the example above. To find out your ethernet port (or if you have multiple ports, which one is the primary internet connection) just type ifconfig at the command line.

Also, as an other note, tcpflow is available via Fink. Just make the obvious change to /sw/bin/tcpflow in the example.

This might be too obvious to mention? I'll mention it anyway:

tcpflow from entropy.ch lists compatibility with 10.3. It installed fine for me in 10.4 with no modifications on my part, and no errors.

Another useful modification is to substitute "wmv" for "mov" in the above command if it's a Windows Media file (and not a quicktime movie) that you're trying to save.

In either event, curl -o 'urlfilename_from_tcpdump' should save the "revealed" file.
