Does a video stream get tucked away anywhere?

    In OS X, if you play a streamed video in Safari, does it tuck itself anywhere inside a folder like iTunes does because I really want to be able to watch the new Lindsay Lohan video full screen, but since it is a stream, that is impossible. Is there any map to get into a special folder where streamed videos are kept?

    Grab http://www/formymac.com/MR/iTMSMovieGrabber.zip.

    Unzip it to your desktop (it's an AppleScript app).

    Go to iTMS, find the video you want, right-click (or control-click) on the icon and select "Copy iTunes Music Store URL". If the video has multiple sizes, click on the icon, then right-click on the size you want. Basically, get to where you'd normally click to begin watching the video and right-click instead.

    Then, once that URL is in your Clipboard, double-click on iTMSMovieGrabber. It'll open a Safari window, get some info, then use wget in a Terminal window to fetch the video to wherever you want. You will need to install wget (if you don't have it already), which can be found with a quick Google search.

    It's not in iTunes...it is an AOL Music stream.

    So it isn't "Over"? It's a newer one?

    If it's a true stream, you're SOL.

    True... but I'm guessing a $70 app is a bit much for one video.

    Yep, "show source" in AOL's little movie player window and search for .mov, for anyone wondering where that link came from.

    Save link as... ought to work on the above URL too.

    (By the way, wasn't Lindsay Lohan the kid with red hair and freckles? When did she turn into a Britney Simpson clone?)
