Most of the time video clips on the internet opens in a small Media Player within the web page and there is no link where one can Right Click and Save Target As...
Does anyone know, in these cases, how to “download” this movie clip to your hard drive ?
When I right click on the little Media Player after the movie played through, the “Save As” option is greyed out.
I’ve tried to see whether the movie is downloaded to some Temporary Internet folder, but cannot find anything.
go there, download the program and you can save your file with this utility. It allows you to record virtually any file viewable (movies, trailers, video files basically). It also allows you to to take screenshots from the video.
Scroll to the bottom and there’s an application that should work.
You can also try seaching for “Streaming video recorders” or a similar phrase.
Ok, here we go.
Download the internet browser opera (google it) then play the video all the way through. then navigate to c:\Documents and Settings\[your windows user name]\Application Data\Opera\Opera\profile\cache4\ In there you will find a whole bunch if files. Sort them by size and the odds are that the biggest will be the video you want. Copy it to your desktop or wherever you want to put it and that’s it.
It should be noted that application data is a hidden folder. You’ll either have to make invisible files & folders visible in folder options or you can open application data folder directly by opening Start>Run and typing %appdata% in there.
this tells you how to do it. the firefox extension works on everything and actually downloads the video file instead of recording your screen. I dunno how fraps is, but it doesn’t work for mac
I was able to copy some old family video’s off a distant relative’s facebook that was set by the poster as “not to share” with the Save Video Plugin free trail. Worked great and saved video in same HQ as the original. Amazing program with no hassles. www.savevideoplugin.com
