    Oh crap. I was even looking for Flip4Mac 2 days ago, and can't believe I just missed it. :rolleyes:

    I'm just gonna download WMP and stick with that, because I really don't know why I can't just download the beta.

    I like being able to do a save-as even when the site has tried to disable it... so I'll probably stick with what I've got right now...

    yeah, but it is a bit glitchy on large wmv files and streaming from Comedy Central. I was hoping .29 fixes these.

    copy the url from your location bar, open the terminal, then type
    Code:
    user@wonderfulMac:~ $cd ~/Desktop
    user@wonderfulMac:~/Desktop $wget '(command-v)'
    
    and you should get the file right on your desktop. If it can be downloaded, it can be saved.

    BOOOOOOOOOO!

    [edit 1]Oh thanks, Palad1 for addressing the solution. Must have skipped that conversation.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work for quicktime links like the ones on Apple's Trailers site (HD ones). Although, if its in a temp folder it should be able to be accessed. Its just a matter of finding where that is.

    [edit 2]Viewing the page's source will work to find the link but that is a major pain.

    [edit 3]To no avail I still can't download it even with the link to the movie. All Safari will do is create a bad file. Smart Apple.
