    Thanks for these! However I have a question - why aren't you using slice curve in the first video? It's more precise and quite faster than method presented here. Also the masking before hitting ctrl+w is quite unnecessary, works witout it as well.

    Default Ok Great that these are available to us all but!!!!

    Why do you not include a download button or option so that we can watch them offline which is what I like to do?

    I mean - if you put them up on the web for free then that is an obvious thing to do.

    Zsoka you could always do the following:

    1). Play the movie and let the orange bar finish. Stop the movie, don't let it finish.
    2). In Internet Explorer, click on Tools>Internet Options>Settings (The Settings button next to Delete...)
    3). Click View files - This will open your Temporary Internet Files folder. If you know how to get to this folder without doing the above great.
    4). if you change your view to Details and list them by size, you should find your video at the top. copy and paste this to another folder. I think they are in .f4v format. So you can convert if necessary.

    Voila. Hope that helps

    There are quite a few video download managers (Fast Video DLM, Any Video, 1 Click Video Download, etc). All free. Install, play video, click popup, dl video and enjoy offline :-)

    That's the way I do it

    Default Thanx for the advice boys

    Thanx but I know all that. In fact I used gotflash to do it. It is a firefox extension. Much easier.
    Anyway, the point is why they do not add a download button for us. It would be the courteous and intelligent thing to do. I mean they are in the business of communication are they not?
    But thanx anyway.
