    In alot of instances you can't because they purposefully setup the webpage code and delivery method of the video so you can't download the file. About all you can do is right click on the video link and then select "Save Target As". Depending on how the page and delivery method is setup, you may or may not actually get a video file. You have to try it and see.

    I've never tried it but I believe you can record streaming video as an .AVI file using HyperCam. You'll find it here:


    If it works let us know.
