A school I help at has a lab full of students who watch the news at www.ChannelOne.com every day, and then read related articles. The problem is that the whole school shares one DSL connection. This causes the rest of the school practically lose Internet connectivity while the lab full of students watch the news video slowly buffer.

One possible solution is to show the video on one computer (using a projector) and then have the kids read the articles on their own (obviously, a lab full of kids reading articles doesn't hurt like a lab full of streaming videos).

I once wrote a small script to automatically download a video to their local server, so that all of the kids could watch the video from their local server instead of over the Internet. The problem is that I can't figure out where to download the video from ChannelOne. They're not opposed to us downloading the file and then letting the kids use their site after watching the video locally, but they don't support actually doing it.

I could use a screen capture program to record it, but that would require a teacher actually playing it (and recording it) first. It would be so much nicer to be able to just download a file.
