I am not sure if this is normal with macs but whenever I visit a website with embedded video the video often plays in a separate window.
In stead of playing the video on a screen on the website, it opens quicktime.
Handy but I wonder if this is also why I can't find a way to download the software.
No don't worry, I want to download a interview with me by local tv who don't mind me downloading it.
But somehow I just can't get it done.
I've tried several firefox addons, perian, itubegrabber, and a few more.
But perhaps because the videos are opened in a seperate player and not in the browser, I can't download them.
I did find the url of the video itself, it is on a mms:// address.

So I was wondering if its normal that some sites play the video in a new open browser or if this is a setting I can change and also if there is a way to download embedded videos.

Yes I asked the tv station for a dvd but I don't want to wait for it and besides, after discovering this problem I sort of want to find a solution, even if I get the dvd.

what's the URL? Safari can usually download streams through the Activity window.
