    I believe you need QT Pro in order to get the abiltiy to just save a QuickTime movie from using the extended menu, but if the address of the movie ends with a .mov extention then just save it and you will get the file

    if it's not streaming, which i'm pretty sure this one isn't, the easiest way would be to open the Activities window (Window-->Activity) and find the .mov file that is loading... it'll even show you the file size... then just option-double click it, and it will start downloading straight to your hd...

    it is a bit annoying, however, that even if you loaded the whole thing in your browser, you have to dl it again, but.. oh well...

    Just downloaded it straight to my desktop from your "right here" link to it - thanks! :cool: In case you haven't figured it out yet, just control click and save it - piece of cake!
