Question: Capturing pop-up video clips?

    Greetings... I made the switch to Apple last December and am VERY happy. However, the one thing that I cannot figure out how to do is save video clips from pop-up windows.

    I capture ad clips daily from to use when teaching. In Windows, I can 'save as' or else dig the file out of the temporary Internet files. With the Apple, I have not figured out a way to save these ads in the pop up windows...

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks! :)

    once one of the popups popup, go to Window --> Activity. in that window, find the file being loaded that is the largest and if probably an MPG. then hold option and double click that file... the movie will start downloading to a file on your desktop (or where ever your default place is)
