Introduction: Download Quicktime Movies Without Quicktime PRO

as far as i know this only works with Firefox. But it might work with Safari as well.
First go on the website that has the Quicktime video on it.Than click on Tools on the tool bar at the top of the screen, go down and click on the button that says "Page Info". A window with tabs across the top will appear. Click on the tab that says Media, and find the movie. NOTE whenever you do that the video might not come up with its name on the screen, so to find the video, in the scroll box there is a categorie call "type". Find the "embedded" type and click on it. After you do that click "save as" in the same window, now just do whatever you would do if you were downloading anything off the internet, naming and saving the file.

Step 1: Saving the Movie

Click on the Tools button on the top of the page, go down and click on "page info"

Step 2: Get Set Up to Download the Video

A window with tabs will pop up. Click on the Tab marked Media

Step 3: Find the Video and Save It

You look through the page info box until you find the Video you want. After you have found the video you click save as, enter the name you want it saved as, and save it!


There you go i hope you enjoyed my first instructable!

Step 4: Update

If you want to downlaod flash games off, like addicting games or anygaming website. All you have to do is download it like if it was a video like i showed and open it with your internet browser. And the best thing is that, when ever you play it, it will be the full screen.

enjoy

I have downloaded a Quicktime HD movie from YouTube. I want to put it on a CD or DVD so that I can show it on a television. Is this possible?

if you are going to use firefox anyway, try the downloadhelper add-on, it is a LOT easier than this way.

Cool tip.

Might want to add that if the video is played in a window without the drop-down menus, right click the mouse on an area outside the video and select View Page Info from the context menu that pops up.

On the Safari toolbar, click Window, then Activity and you can see the .flv etc files being loaded. Just double-click on the file you want to get, and it will download. :)

thanks, i will be adding that soon

Try shutting down your Internet connection before playing the video. If the video won't play anymore, then you've got a copy that will only work as long as the owner offers it on the Internet. QuickTime checks the download source to make sure it's still available.

Also, the same works with flash game files. They are labeled as an 'embed' type, but the extension is .swf. Open them with an internet browser and you can resize them and they work great.

author

thanks, i always knew that you could download swf files off websites but i never figured out how to open them. thanks

author

then edit your instructable and put'er on in!
