oh yes i was entering it into safari.
the part where you look at the source, then copy and paste the address that plays the .mov file into a new window. before looking at the activity window and option-clicking it to download.

JMG,

perhaps you could verify this by going through the steps and seeing if you hit the wall i'm talking about? I'm surprisedd AOL put up something around it's videos database that restricts it in the way i'm facing.
SOory, I'm not on mac so I can't test it out. :(

perhaps it was only one video.
Try Blink 182's Not Now video.

When you get the pop up screen, there's the QT loge as if it's gonna stream, then this ? appears over the QT logo for some odd reason.

Viewing the source code and probing the URL gets you a Authorization Required page.

Yeah this way is a little more sketchy. Mine is a sure shot.
lerkaile is on Mac dude. My method is for both windows and mac, but currently lerkaile is having problems with the mac version. I don't know why you are having problems with the windows. I just downloaded a buch of songs no problem.

Btw Synergy37, i've the latest version from 9down. it doesn't prompt me for any registration so i guess it's fine. The wmv quality is kinda lower, no?

I'm confused, couldn't you just use IE and find the streamed video in temporary internet files??

try it and get back to us. I found this way easier than trying to wade through my files because my cache is huge. .mov are usually better quality anyways, wmv has to be one of the worst formats around next to rm.

sorry have to spend my time wrestling with my cd collection and re-ripping everything. i'll take your word for it though. stupid that no one else suggested that, what seems to me to be a simple option.

I remember a few years ago I was able to get movies that way as well, but just looking through my cache, but I also noticed that the new streaming technologies didn't actually save the entire file in your cache, and that even if it did there was a reference file and the date file, two separate files that couldn't be played normally. That's why the method of using net transporter is used. Besides, it only SOUNDS or LOOKS difficult. I actually find it much easier to use this methor rather than looking through my cache. Those files would STILL have to be converted with VLC (to eliminate the steaming protection) and Vidora.

Your internet browser is trying to open the file in your browser. That's why in my directions I said to "right click, save as". That way you will try to save the file to disk rather than opening it up right in your browser. DO NOT CLICK THE LINK.. RIGHT CLICK AND SAVE AS.

Why do you need to convert it again if VLC turns it into mp4? I put it in itunes after VLC and it worked fine.
