    The program you're looking for is called iTMS Extractor. You can still find it on macupdate at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14869. It works pretty well, though in my experiences it has a tendancy to crash after saving a video to disk (so I have to relaunch it after every video instead of just being able to load what's currently in iTunes). Otherwise it works as advertised.

    Windows users can just save them from inside iTunes (though that might just be if you have QuickTime Player Pro).

    Save this to a file in ~/Library/iTunes/Scripts

    relaunch itunes and after you watch a music video, goto the scripts menu and click "the name of the script file" and a dialog should pop up... works fine for me here with 4.6 on panther 10.3.5

    Code:
    set originalFile to do shell script "lsof |grep -i QTP| grep iTunes|head -1|awk '{ print $9 }'"
    if length of originalFile is greater than 0 then
    	set newFile to POSIX path of (choose file name with prompt "Save movie as:" default name "iTunes Video.mov")
    	if length of newFile is greater than 0 then
    		if newFile does not end with ".mov" then set newFile to newFile & ".mov"
    		do shell script "cp -v '" & originalFile & "' '" & newFile & "'"
    	end if
    else
    	display dialog "No movie found." buttons {"OK"} default button "OK"
    end if

    similar script for music?

    Is there any similar script to save music that is shared through itunes? I know that there is software out there, but it doesn't jive with iTunes 4.7 yet I'm told...
