Hello all. Sorry for this question, not too much of a tech expert (obviously)...
Question about downloading a video clip from a website, simply by clicking on the picture, the clip downloads and then automatically plays in Real Player. However if you do not specifically save the file, is the file stored somewhere on my system anyways, in a temp file or wherever? Recently played a clip I'd like to review, but did not specifically save, can I recover this somehow?
Thanks in advance....

It may be stored in a temp file somewhere, but if real player did its job right, it would delete it afterwards.

If you streamed the file off the server, it does not actually download the file, and then it would never be on your machine
