    Hi.

    A lady asked me if Quicktime PRO can save streaming videos from
    web. In particular, she wants to save videos like this :

    (there is a "watch Video" link on this page)
    http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/diy_kits/article/0,2019,DIY_13787_2274016,00.html

    Since I do not have the PRO version, could someone please try that ?
    I suppose it is possible but these vids change from site to site.

    Txs !

    I can save it.

    I may be wrong but I don't think you need Pro to do this.

    Thanks for the ultra fast reply. Well, my non-PRO version does not have the "save as" option. did you notice if it saved as WMF ?

    You need the paid version of Flip4Mac to save as WMV.

    Yes, it is WMV. I can also save it as a standard Quicktime Movie and export it to various other formats.

    I do have the paid version of Flip4Mac as well, so that makes sense. :)

    I do NOT have PRO, however I do have the FREE Flip4Mac installed. I can save it to my hard drive just fine.

    It works when you save through the plugin, but you have to wait for the entire file to load. As for format, the meta-info claims it's a "QuickTime Movie", while the More Info section of the Finder info window lists "Windows Media Audio 9 Standard, Windows Media Video 7" for the codecs.
