    I'm hoping the knowledgeable tech people here can help me. I often come across videos in news stories, which I would like to save, but they are not set up to right click-save as. When I right click-save as they only let me save the HTML link, but not the video itself. Is there some technique that will allow me to save the video itself?

    Thanks.

    Streaming video can not be "saved".It must be captured.This often requires additional software and or hardware.

    I would like to get some streaming videos as well. Sometimes my download manager will pick-up some of these files, and I can save them to my hard drive.
