    Hi,

    I wanna save the video on this page onto my hard drive
    http://cms.tornadonetworks.net/cnaid/consolepworks.php?m=YorkeGWA6198cbf&s=2
    but I don't know how.
    Normally you just view the page source and find the .wmv or .mpg file that is embedded in the code. However there isn't such a file. Rather the file name is
    <param name="FileName" value="mms://play150.servecast.com/ondemand8/CNAID/filebase0/YorkeGWA6198cbf">
    Is there anyway I can save the video onto my hard drive.

    Cheers
    inlimbo...

    Not easily. MMS stands for Microsoft Media Services (or something similar), and you need specialised apps to download files using it. I know of a couple of apps for Windows, StreamBox VCR, and HiDownload, but unfortunately don't know of any Mac apps :(
