    Hi,
    I guess many of you know the lynda.com tutorials.
    I signed up for a free 7 day trial so I want to download some clips from a
    tutorial.
    With the DownloadHelper Plugin (Firefox) it shouldn't be a problem.
    So let's take this tutorial for example:
    http://www.lynda.com/home/DisplayCourse.aspx?lpk2=562

    The first clip can be downloaded without any problems.
    The second clip loads but can't be downloaded though. If I try to download
    it via the downloadhelper it saves a file but it's not a video and only has a
    size of "2 Bytes".
    Could anyone help?
    best,
    amoergosum

    They do make it so you can't save them for a reason, you know ...

    I believe their user agreement prohibits downloading - Thus, they sell their courses on CD and DVD for folks like you. You should look into that.
