    Hey guys i've been trying to save a web page for offline use the web page has like 7 videos embedded, it's part of a training i purchased.

    This is where i'm stuck at I use chrome, I click the menu icon in the top right corner, scroll down to More tools then click save page as.... Then i save it in a folder on the desktop as Webpage, Complete.

    From watching youtube videos they just went to the file explorer clicked an icon which seemed to contain all the content for said webpage then it opened with :///files.http://www.domainname.com

    I have this folder with all these files, the youtube video didn't have this but i followed everything they did in the video how can i view my webpage offline.

    Thanks for your help.

    You may need to click the preview (or "play") image on the video before it is pulled and starts loading.

    Check your "Network" tab in Developer Tools. You'll see the video loading once you do this. Right click on the path, and "copy link address". You can then load it into your browser and save it.

    In chrome you can view the source of the website, you can copy that and try to view it offline in a webserver. You can make screenshots from the website as well, that way you know for sure you have everything but I understand that it is less elegant.

    You would save the page normally first ("Webpage, Complete"). Then, use the "Network" tab to determine the video URLs and manually save them.

    As suggested above, you can try HTTrack as well.

    Feel free to share the page here and we can give you a more definitive solution that works with certainty.
