saving media player movies that are embeded in webpages?

by liam182 / January 20, 2006 12:13 AM PST

does anyone know how to do it so I can view the movies offline?
rather than just saving the link and having to go on the internet each time to view.

Thanks in advance.

think ive worked out how to do it. Go to properties on the file in the web page copy the URL then open it in internet explorer directly. Now media player opens just click save as..

This the correct and easiest way to do it?

Temp Internet files

The way i do usually works but application enhancements are targetting this method because of the security issue and piracy of their content it creats.

Go to the page and wait for the clip to finish playing, this way you will know it has finished streaming, then go to tools > internet options. Go to settings (under temp interne files on the first tab) then to view files. go to view then arrange by type. reduce the window size and DRAG AND DROP all media files to a folder on your desktop. I do this for flash movies and it always works (swf files) but video clips might be different, after doing that all you have to do is filter through what you have in desktop folder.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
