seems overly complicated

I just type wget (or if that is not available, simply ftp will do just fine, as well) in and paste the URL of the movie. I can then just double-click the resulting file while it's being downloaded. Presto! (Alternatively a open -a vlc PATH_TO_FILE in another Terminal window will achieve the same without needing to resort to the mouse)

I wanted to add that the 'Be quiet' and 'Interface interaction' feature mentioned in the original hint are really sweet! Thanks!
