    hi all,

    i see lots of tutorial files on net but unfortunately they are streaming video. is there any way i can save these tutorial files to my computer? once the streaming file is downloaded even if the internet connection is off, we can play it again. Are streaming files stored in temporary internet files folder? where are these streaming files stored and how can i copy it to my computer?

    kindly help,

    regards

    sorry hewee,

    no luck in downloading the tutorial from the site.

    the streaming video, once it is completely streamed, is it not stored in some folder of IE? is it not possible to find out where it is stored, because once the entire video is streamed, even if the modem is switched off, one can play the file from the start (i.e if the file is streamed completely). does that mean that the file is stored somewhere on the computer?

    kindly help,
    regards,

    Like I said they can be hard to get.
    Try the Video DownloadHelper that wilson44512 posted.

    Even then it may only work on some file types and sites.
