This is probably a simple issue but it escapes me. In my business, we have a video we use for presentation purposes that people can download and view. It would be convenient to be able to save it on the hard drive so a laptop user wouldn't be dependent upon having to be in a hotspot or have an installed service card to be able to run this video.  We can download it but then what? I'm assuming you need to use a program that converts the downloaded file into a format where the computer can save it to the hard drive. What do you suggest?

What file format is the video being referred to? Have you tried VLC? http://www.videolan.org/vlc/features.html

I do have VCL player. What I have noticed is that if I pause the file after downloading it and right click, I get a Save as option, which I assume will let me save this MP4 file to my computer using VLC player. Is that the player of choice?

Yes, VLC is my choice and most likely by the majority. See support video formats from VLC features.
