    This is the video:

    http://blockofstores.com/movies/jayMBAL.mov

    Its not on a big site site like Youtube so I can't use vixy.net or savevid.com because they don't work. Does anyone know of any free program that allows me to save this video on a .mov or .mp4 format? (not flv)
    I would really appreciate any help you can give me, thanks!

    In Safari, Window > Activity.... find the file and hold Option while you double-click.

    If you have the direct link, paste link into safari address, hold OPTION key, and hit ENTER.

    ... or paste that link into the downloads window in Safari, or right click the link you just posted and "Download linked file as..."

    That should give enough methods for you.
