    I am trying to get a video off an online music magazine called NOW Magazine. When I put the link in places like Zamzar or media-converter they tell me the website and/or file type is unsupported. I'm sure there is a way to get the video off, but I don't know my options. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here's the link to the video so you know what I'm talking about: http://www.nowtoronto.com/daily/music/story.cfm?content=168583

    Thanks

    I'm not sure this will work with newer versions of Mac OS and Safari, but give the following a go...

    Open the page in Safari. Click the video's play button. Window > Activity. Find the file that's several MB in size and Alt+double-click it.

    Do you have permission to use this video? If so, the company should be able to provide you with a high res version.
