    I need to be able to keep a copy of video that streams over the internet to my computer.

    After the video has finished streaming there should be a file of that video somewhere on the HD (probably in a cache).

    Does anyone know where those files are kept and what they are called?

    The idea of streaming video is that not all de movie will be downloaded.
    You download the first part, then view it. The second is downloading while you view the first part, and when you view the second part, the first part gets deleted.... well, basically anyway.

    Good examples of streaming video every Mac enthousiast wants to download but seems to very, VERY difficult, are the Keyote speeches delivered by dear Steve.
    Usually apps like SnapzProX (screen recording app) are necessary to grab it....
    'nuff siad. ;)
