When a clip is found-before watching it-I clear out temp internet files, then watch clip-at its completion-leave it up ( maybe even repeating) open tools again-internet options-settings-view files and look for the media type ( I set folder view to details-that way I can sometimes tell by file size) right click > Copy > and paste to somewhere ( Video folder in "My Documents), if it's not there-or the file size isn't significantly large (depending on format-maybe 3mb per minute) you can't have it!!!
I am using windows xp home edition. and I have tried to save video clips from various websites but am unable to do so by clicking on "save target as" while the mouse curser is positioned over the clip or link name. Is there a temporary file that is created when I view the clip that I can maybe rename and save??? I've looked but can not find any....can anyone help?
