Download anything... :O

Hey there
Just an idea I got. If you for example want to download a Keynote, as expowiki.org is down, you can stream it, press Cmd+I, and copy the link to the .mov file.

Now since I am no good at writing HTML, I would like someone to write a simple site in HTML with nothing but a link to a given file, and then anyone in possession of the file would be able to right click the link, and save the file as a .mov file on their HDD.

For example, the link to the MWSF 2007 Keynote is:
rtsp://a2047.v1411b.c1411.g.vq.akamaistream.net/5/2047/1411/2_h264_650/1a1a1ae454c430950065de4cbb2f94c226950
c7ae655b61a48a91475e243acda3dac194879adde0f/8848125_2_650.mov

Perhaps you could include a short detailed guide as how to edit the link yourself, and thereby easily download tons of stuff. My brother for instance wants to download a .swf file, but everytime he goes into activity monitor in Safari, and doubleclicks the file, it just opens in a new window. He could instead copy the link to the file, insert it in the HTML file, which you wrote, and the download it. Yes?

I'm sorry, but I can't seem to find the proper action in Automator. If anybody could be of any assistance, please do assist.(Not that you didn't help TBi, but I need it dumbed down )

I'm sorry, I don't get what you are trying to do. But if you want a simple html site with a link this is what it looks like:


Code:
<html>

	<body>
		<p><a href="rtsp://a2047.v1411b.c1411.g.vq.akamaistream.net/5/2047/1411/2_h264_650/1a1a1ae454c430950065de4cbb2f94c226950 c7ae655b61a48a91475e243acda3dac194879adde0f/8848125_2_650.mov">Apple Keynote MWSF 2007</a></p>
	</body>

</html>

I was just looking to do this today...that is, download the full keynote (1:56:52.76, not the 1:45:25 version on iTunes). The address of the stream is:

rtsp://a2047.v1411b.c1411.g.vq.akamaistream.net/5/2047/1411/2_h264_650/1a1a1ae454c430950065de4cbb2f94c226950c7ae655b61a48a91475e243acda3dac194879adde0f/8848125_2_650.mov

I've tried downloading it through Safari, but it actually just brings up RealPlayer (which to my surprise actually played it). How does one go about actually getting the full file, not simply streaming it?
