    What exactly do you mean a video?

    Is it a flash video, if so you can try:
    Code:
    mediaconverter.org
    If it's a video file (ex. avi, mpeg, etc.) then you can try this:
    Code:
    http://www.cnet.com.au/software/internet/0,239029524,240091346,00.htm

    And remember, try this to:
    Code:

    Get Orbit Downloader....or if you use firefox there's an addon called downloadhelper. Both work well.

    Doesn't work for some flash movies unfortunately, but everything else works fine...

    Hope this helps.

    Do a screen capture using Camtasia and place your mic to your speakers if all else fails. That will not, even if encrypted.

    A manual way that this can be done is to:

    1) Right click on the page that has the video on it and choose "View Source"

    2) Use the "Find" button to locate either an "FLV" file or an "SWF" file.

    3) Highlight the url of the video file and choose "Copy".

    4) Open notepad and paste the url in it

    5) Now we will make the url clickable.
    Example:
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.thevideourl.com/thevideofileyouwant.swf"</a>
    6) Now name the file and save as ALL FILES and write the extention "html" at the end of the the file.

    7) Now save and close the html file.

    8) Now double-click on the html file and right-mouse click on the link and choose save as.

    Now you are downloading the video to your hard drive.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    download realplayer i think its version 11 not sure on that though
    then go to the video you want you will notice on the uper right hand side
    a tab will show saying download click it and it will dl to a file you chose on your HD
    it downloads all videos in flv so you might need a converter

    hope this helps
