some sites let you view clips but not download them. view the clip you want, them use windows explorer to go into you temp. internet files and see if the clip shows in there. if it does, copy and paste to My Documents and run it from there. sometimes it works but if it's streaming video it doesn't. or you can try jurassicpunk.com.
For many sites, you need to have Quicktime Pro before you can get access to the download capabilities. QT Pro is a $30 purchase through Apple, and also gives you editing capabilities with your videos, plus exporting/importing with other file formats.
There is another way, but it's fairly tricky. In your Quicktime preferences, you can check an option to "Save movies in cache." This will keep the file in your web browser's cache after viewing it.
Depending on your OS and browser, the cache may be stored as individual files. If so, look for the really, really big file (several megabytes). In the cache, it likely has some random string of characters as its name. Copy it to wherever you like, rename it, and enjoy. :)
thx for your instructions.

I have successfully converted both AVI movies taken with my digital still camera, as well as MPEG-1 (VCD-ready) TV shows downloaded from KaZaa. Both run through Image Converter without a hitch and play OK on the screen. So far, I have only tried the "long" quality for the TV show--it turned a 225MB MPG episode of "Futurama" into a 21MB watchable file on the Memory Stick--not bad, a conversion down to 10% size. Quality is bad, but it's watchable. I'll try "good" quality next, see how the compression goes.

The same Futurama episode, in "good" quality transfer to the MemStick, came out very well. Whereas the "long" version was only barely watchable, the "good" version was of more than acceptable quality. The size doubled, though, to a bit over 45MB.
Haven't tried an off-the-web AVI file yet, though... anyone out there done it?
