Hello. I recently came across some videos online in which were helpful to me as they are "how to's". I clicked the link that says (Download ___ Minutes at ___MB). It automatically opened WindowsMedia11 I have, started buffering and then played it. I could pause and such. But at the end, I would get another one and tha 1st one wouldnt be readily availible. I assume they are a watch once type of link. But it is hard to get online and wait to load them all up wen I need them. Is there a way WMP 11 can save them. I know sometimes, I get them and there is a save/cancel/run option at 1st. These just immediately load and play after buffering. Is this a 'streaming' video? And if WMP 11 cant save them, is there an aditional program I can get that will. I think it does aquire codecs at 1st too. But Im not positive. I need something easy and free =) I assume there are ways to capture anything thats on your screen right?? Help is appreciated

I you're using IE:
Right-click the download link, and select Save Target As...
Then pick a file to save it in, and it will be downloaded to that file, for future use.

I you're using Firefox:
Right-click the download link, and select Save Link As...
Then pick a file to save it in, and it will be downloaded to that file, for future use.
