    You shouldn't, it's copyright material... That's the whole point.

    You'd have to be more specific. Is the video a file on your computer? Or is it a streamed video?

    play the video (in full screen), put an isight camera in front of the computer screen, and record with quicktime pro

    When you open the site, start streaming the content, then go to Window>Activity, this will open a dialog box that will show your open pages activity. You should be able to easily find the streaming content from the extension. Try double clicking on that file, it should start downloading, if it opens a new browser window with code in it, close the new window and then hold down the Option key and double click the same file. Now, it dloads in .flv format, you will need to convert to and .avi or whatever format you want.

    downloadhelper

    if you get firefox, there is a free add on called download helper. when you navigate to a site and start streaming a video, the icon starts spinning and if you click on it you can download the video to your desktop. Firefox and download helper are free downloads and work on macs. just google em

    Try Screenium, just crop it to the size of the actual video and set it to record sound as well.
